DENVER | For a team that hadn’t been to the Class 5A Final Four since 2016, Rangeview had the poise to come through when the moments got big Saturday.

The third-seeded Raiders handled the pressure of taking on veteran and defending state champion Grandview at the Denver Coliseum with a 49-39 victory that brought them within one step of playing for a state title themselves.

As champions of the Larry Farmer Region, Rangeview (24-2) is set to face the winner of the contest between No. 2 Mountain Vista and No. 7 Smoky Hill on March 8.

Senior Quincey Jewett led coach Shawn Palmer’s Raiders with 10 points, while junior reserve Isaiah Hayes scored all nine of his points in the fourth quarter to help his team stave off a Grandview team that got as close as four with 3:27 remaining.

Coach Michael Rogers’ Wolves, playing in the Great 8 for the third straight season, finished the season 19-7 despite 21 points from senior Dayne Prim. Junior Lian Ramiro tallied 13 points as well for Grandview, which continued to miss the inside presence of injured junior big man Caleb McGill.
