The Colorado high school season is nearing quickly, and we're here to cover it. Over the next several weeks, leading up to opening day, we'll publish our team previews ahead of the 2023 spring season, touching on programs spanning all state classifications, leading into a countdown through the official PBR Colorado Preseason Power 25 Rankings.

Team: Monarch
League: Front Range
2022 Record: 10-13 / 2-9 Conference
Classification: 5A
Head Coach: James Thompson
Years at the Helm: 2

Monarch was a young team fighting in the Front Range League in 2022 and they will look to use that experience to propel them towards success in 2023. This team will be returning many players who were starting on the varsity level as juniors and sophomores just last season, hoping to make a big impact as they are all upperclassmen this time around. This team prides itself on offense and is looking to shape up the defense and pitching that kept them from winning more games last year. Monarch has the young talent to compete if they can get things going early and often in 2023.
