The Eagles did an amazing job over the season winning against the top two teams in state during the regular season (Regis Jesuit and ThunderRidge High School) and making it to the Great Eight with a first week bye and two wins against Doherty and Montbello High School. Mountain Vista is currently ranked eighth overall in state.
