COLORADO SPRINGS — Starting in 2012, the Pikes Peak Athletic Conference was the dominant league for girls soccer. Five-straight Class 4A state championships were won by three different teams from the PPAC.
In the last two years, the championship has eluded the Colorado Springs-based league. D’Evelyn and Windsor brought home 4A titles in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
From the looks of things, the PPAC is itching to get its hands back on championship gold. Only, it might be a new set of hands raising the trophy.
Sand Creek – the top-ranked team in 4A – has been on a tear in 2019, winning its first eight games of the year which included a 2-0 win over Cheyenne Mountain in Wednesday’s PPAC opener. It was coach Jeremy Tafoya’s first win over Cheyenne Mountain in his five years as coach of the Scorpions.
