NEAR RECORD CROWDS TURN OUT FOR CHSAA “CHAMPIONSHIP SATURDAY XIII”
PRESENTED BY “THE COLORADO SPORTS HALL OF FAME”

DENVER—The CHSAA “Championship Saturday” games, presented by The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame, continues to be successful with consistently large and enthusiastic attendance.
The Colorado High School Class 5A and 4A State Championship Games held at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Saturday, were watched by a near record crowd of nearly 13,000 high school football fans. This marked the 13th consecutive year for both of the state’s big school title games taking place at the Broncos’ home field.
The Pomona Panthers defeated the Eaglecrest Raptors 56-49 in the highest scoring game in Colorado high school 5A championship history to win the Class 5A title. The Pueblo South Colts defeated the Pine Creek Eagles by a 25-14 margin to claim the Class 4A title and their first championship.
“Speaking on behalf of the CSHOF Board of Directors, we are thrilled by the growth of this program, which has featured great games, tremendous enthusiasm and the opportunity for The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame to make significant monetary and in-kind contributions over the past 13 years to over 25 youth sports organizations in Colorado,” said CSHOF President & CEO Tom Lawrence.
Over the past thirteen years, about $1,600,000 has been donated by The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame to the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) and other charitable youth sports organizations like Special Olympics Colorado, National Sports Center for the Disabled, Sportswomen of Colorado, Colorado Golf Foundation and the Gold Crown Foundation.

“We certainly look forward to continuing this program in years to come,” Lawrence said. “It is gratifying to all involved (The CSHOF, Denver Broncos and CHSAA) to be part of something which benefits high school football, youth sports organizations and Colorado’s prep students to this high level.”
