Boy’s Division III First Round
Tuesday, Feb. 16 at Pueblo High School

It’s been a generation since Pueblo won 19 regular season games and a lifetime since the Warrior magic was so real one could almost touch it. Such was the case Tuesday night when No. 11 Pueblo defeated No. 22 Flowing Wells 62-48 in the first round of the Division III state playoffs.

The Warriors had some success during the Michael Perez years from 2008-2010 but it turned out to be a flirtation rather than a statement. The team only won one game three years later.

Now, second-year coach, and former Arizona football and basketball standout, Kelvin Eafon has the Warrior Nation believing again. Not quite at the level of the Lafayette “Fat” Lever days but that was a different time and a different gym…..
