AURORA | The Centennial League Challenge is back, as Centennial League baseball teams will again compete in a three-game mini-tournament starting April 28.

As typically happens in the spring, rescheduled games backed up the completion of the first round of league play, so Challenge matchups had to be created before standings were finalized for logistical purposes.

One pool of play is comprised of Arapahoe, Eaglecrest, Smoky Hill and Mullen, while Cherry Creek, Grandview, Cherokee Trail and Overland make up the other pool. Games are currently scheduled for April 28, May 1 and May 5.
