The Storm are a single state championship away from a 3-peat crown and signifying themselves as thee premier team in boys 5A. Considering the school was first established in 2009, Sue Cleveland has been in title contention for the majority of their short life span. Lucas Futey will take top spot over for 2018 individual champion Yonas Haile and newest Adams State Grizzly. The senior heavy Storm have been steadily furthering their distance from the rest of 5A making it almost feel as if the real race is for runner-up accolades. Expect the Storm to return to what should be yet another dominate season in 2019.
