At the end of Montezuma-COrtes High School commencement Thursday evening, the Panthers baseball team received a police and fire escort through town on Main Street as they headed to Greeley to play in the state tournament Friday.

In Greeley, the Panthers will play No. 4 Coal Ridge (25-0) Friday, at 11:30 a.m. at University High School. The winner of that contest will advance in the winner’s bracket of the double-elimination tournament to a 2 p.m. game, also at University High School, against the winner of No. 1 Eaton (25-0) and regional surprise No. 25 Peak to Peak (12-13).

The M-CHS boys baseball team and coaches prepare to depart for state right after the high school graduation ceremony wraps up. (Erika Alvero/Special to The Journal)
