Baseball: Widefield at Woodland Park, Monday, 4 p.m.
Normally a team that’s 3-14 overall doesn’t get much attention but the Widefield Gladiators may actually have a shot at the postseason. That’s because their league record is 3-1. The Gladiators came up short against many nonleague opponents this season but they’re winning the games that matter. Following a Thursday night game at Canon City, also a league match, the Glads head to Woodland Park on Monday for the second-to-last game of the season. The game could have huge implications for Widefield and the Class 4A Colorado Spring Metro League as a whole. Woodland Park is also in the mix with a 2-1 league record and Thursday night's meeting against conference opponent Elizabeth before hosting Widefield. Sophomore Matthew Lecky leads the Panthers in average at .421 in 38 at-bats. Lecky has eight RBIs. Widefield senior Camron Lucas is batting .405 in 42 at-bats and also has eight RBIs.
