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: Palisade
League: Western Slope
2022 Record: 23-4 / 12-0 Conference
Classification: 4A
Head Coach: Nate Porter
Years at the Helm: 6

Things are again looking promising for the Bulldogs in 2023 as they return some very strong hitters to this year’s lineup, along with some talented juniors and underclassmen. Coach Nate Porter is excited to see how competition shakes out in this program with so much talent at each class right now. Palisade went undefeated in the Western Slope league last season and only managed to lose four games overall. This roster has the talent to make a deep run in 2023.
