Boulder Creek remains elite

After suffering a significant upset to No. 25 ranked Desert Vista during Round One of the Open State Playoffs, the Jaguars (19-10) have not had any trouble in the 6A Playoffs.

Pair of upsets occur in first round of Open State Playoffs

The team defeated Mountain View 71-54 during Round Two and secured their second-straight blowout win.

Despite falling short in the Open Playoffs, No. 1 ranked Boulder Creek has proven to be one of the most dangerous teams in the conference.


Semifinal play

They are now one of just four teams remaining in the 6A bracket.

The Jaguars are set to face the No. 5 ranked Sandra Day O’Connor Eagles (20-9) on Wednesday, Feb. 28 @ 7 p.m. MST.

Boulder Creek has already faced Sandra Day twice this season and came out on top by double-digits both times. This is a huge game between the two teams, with only one being able to advance to the 6A Championship.
