April 27, 2021 — POSTPONED: The final field hockey state title of a crazy academic year

This evening, at the Stutler Bowl, the last field hockey state title of the 2020-21 academic year was set to take place between Aurora Regis Jesuit (Colo.) and Greenwood Village Cherry Creek (Colo.).

But despite the fact that the Colorado High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) moved its season from the fall to the early spring, there was scheduled rain and snow in the area, with a projected gametime temperature of 37 degrees. The weather, including rain and thunderstorms, forced postponement of the title match to Thursday evening.

The two team in the final are coming off wins last night at Stutler Bowl, and both have been prominent programs of late within the state of Colorado.

Regis Jesuit is in its third straight state title match after taking a 3-1 win over Denver Colorado Academy (Colo.). The Raiders won in 2018 before losing the 2019 final.

The team Regis beat back in 2018 were the Cherry Creek Bruins, who beat Monument Palmer Ridge (Colo.) 2-1 in the other semifinal. Cherry Creek won its way to its eighth state championship game, but the team has not won a state final since 2008.

Thursday’s game leaves a smattering of teams in New York, Massachusetts, and North Carolina varsity programs playing out to league and, in the case of New York, sectional championships.
