PBR Colorado Staff

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: Pueblo County
League: South Central
2022 Record: 17-7 / 9-1 Conference
Classification: 4A

The Hornets return a deep squad for the 2023 season as they take on a tough South Central League. Pueblo County had success last year, most of this is thanks to a solid pitching staff. The Hornets should have a plethora of experienced arms at their disposal this season, making them scary once you add in a potentially deep lineup.
