Colorado Academy Cherry Creek girls lacrosse

(Matt Daniels/

Cherry Creek is primed to make this a memorable one when it comes to the girls lacrosse state tournamet. The Bruins grabbed the No. 1 overall seed in the bracket, which was released on Monday.

They sit right above defending champion Colorado Academy. Both teams finished the regular season with a 15-0 record.

Colorado Academy has beaten Cherry Creek in each of the last three state championship games.

The bracket was seeded primarily by the final RPI standings of the regular season.

Columbine and Regis Jesuit round out the top four seeded teams in the bracket. Those teams and the rest of the teams seeded through No. 12 will receive a first-round bye in the state tournament, which begins play on Wednesday.

If the Bruins can take advantage of the top seed and ride it to another state championship, it will be the school's first since 2013. The Bruins lead the state in girls lacrosse state titles with 10. The Mustangs have the second-most with four.

Cherry Creek and Colorado Academy met in last year's state title game where the Mustangs came away with a 8-5 win.
