Hitting their stride

Warriors’ foe in state softball playoffs relies on its lineup

Central High School softball coach Scott Else and the Warriors haven’t faced their first-round Class 5A playoff opponent, No. 7 Rock Canyon, this season. Still, there’s a recent opponent that pops to Else’s mind when scouting the team No. 10 Central (18-3-1) faces at?12:15 p.m. today in Aurora.
Rock Canyon (12-9) is very similar to Fort Collins, Else said, the team that won the Region 8 tournament in Grand Junction by beating the Warriors 5-4 in the championship. The comparison is drawn by Rock Canyon’s dependence on its lineup.
