Paonia Wins 1A State Championship

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.–Paonia (12-1) captured its first state title since 1959 with a 32-24 win over Centauri (11-2) Saturday at Paonia Town Park.

“It’s a dream,” first year head coach Brent McRae said. “It’s a dream come true. Speechless. These boys just played so hard. They played their hearts out. Never give up, never die, and you win. You see what happens.”

The Eagles’ lone loss of the season came against Centauri in the regular season.
