AURORA | Two of Aurora’s top senior players from the recently completed 2018 season were chosen for the Colorado Coaches of Girls Sports (CCGS) All-State Games, played Sunday at Arvada West High School.
Savannah Spitzer, who helped Cherokee Trail not only return to the Class 5A state tournament for the first time since 2015 but make it all the way to the semifinals, was added to the 5A Red Team. The Colorado Mesa University signee was on the same team as Aurora’s other selection, Rangeview’s Lexi Hurtado.
Hurtado helped the Raiders repeat as EMAC champions and qualify for the 5A regional field, though they fell short of making it through the tournament hosted by Eaglecrest.
The CCGS All-State Games consist of matches in all five classifications: 1A (9 a.m.), 2A (10:30 a.m.), 3A (noon), 4A (1:30 p.m.) and 5A (3 p.m.)
