Cherry Creek 1, Monarch 0: In their opener of the Class 5A District 2 tournament, the Coyotes’ Garrit Elzinga threw a complete game and allowed just a sacrifice fly in the first inning, but it was not enough as MHS was held to just two hits by the Bruins. Monarch ended the season 8-12.

Columbine 10, Legacy 0: Lucas Gilbreath was hit hard early but still managed to throw into the fifth inning, but the Lightning were held to just three hits in their first game of the Class 5A District 3 tournament at Columbine. Legacy ended the campaign 11-9.

Palmer Ridge 7, Erie 3:The Bears, who went on to win the Class 4A District 1 tournament in Montrose, jumped on starter Caleb Crites, and Erie never could get a big rally going in a tough loss. Nic Ogimachi drove in two runs and BJ Jensen went 3-for-4, but the Tigers finished the season 12-8

Valor Christian 6, Skyline 4: The Falcons were just a few outs away from an upset win in the Class 4A District 7 tournament that would have sent them to state, but Valor’s A.J. Cecil hit a go-ahead grand slam in the bottom of the sixth inning to save the season for the Eagles. Skyline scored an 8-6 win over D’Evelyn earlier Saturday to reach the district championship and finished 13-8.

Niwot 5, Pueblo West 2: The Cougars used three different pitchers to tie down the Cyclones in the Class 4A District 3 championship game in Delta, earning a trip to state with a pair of tight wins. Ford Ladd, Nick Elrod and Aldair Cintora each did their part, combining to keep PWHS to five hits. Bryan Meek pitched a complete-game in the opener (a 4-3 win against Canon City), and the Air Force-bound senior hit a home run in the finale.
