    If there’s a number that will drive coaches batty, especially after a defeat, it’s runners left on base. Dakota Ridge had its fair share of them in its 9-1 home-opening softball loss to 5A fifth-ranked Eaglecrest on Aug. 31.

    For the record, the Lady Eagles stranded 10 runners, including at least one in each of the first six innings. Dakota Ridge left two runners on in the first and fourth innings and three in the fifth before the visiting Lady Raptors exploded for five runs in the sixth inning at Dave Atencio Field.

    With the entire roster returning from the No. 1 seed in last year’s 5A state volleyball tournament, you wouldn’t think Chatfield coach Stephanie Schick would fret about her team suffering a case of nerves in its 2016 opener. Especially at home, where the Lady Chargers were unbeaten in ’15.

    Chatfield Senior High head coach Bret McGatlin saw the talent. He knows that the skills are there in 4A. He saw that first-hand.

The season brings changes across the board with four of the five teams starting a new quarterback, while conferences have changed and so have opponents as CHSAA underwent a more balanced division of teams across all classifications.

    There are the pros and cons to what the 2016-17 football realignment brings to the table: an equal number of teams in 5A down the ladder, new rivalries on the horizon and some old foes back on the schedule.
