Windsor stuns top seed — In Pueblo, Windsor (15-6) sufficiently made up for losing in the first round, despite being the No. 2 seed, a year ago.
Seeded 16th this time around, the Wizards upset top-seeded Pueblo West 2-0 in the 4A District 1 finals late Monday night at Colorado State University-Pueblo.
The Cyclones wrap up their season with a 17-4 record.
Windsor will try to stay red hot when it faces No. 9 Evergreen (16-5) in the first round of the eight-team state tournament Friday.
The Wizards paved their way to the district finals with a dominant 12-2 win in six innings against No. 17 Littleton (11-9) earlier Monday.

PUEBLO — No players from Weld teams advanced past Monday's quarterfinal round.
In addition to University's No. 3 singles player, sophomore Janna Phansiri, only Eaton's No. 1 doubles team of Courtney Leafgren and Emily Harper and Windsor's No. 2 doubles duo of Amanda Stieb and Carissa Meline advanced past the highly-competitive first round.
Now, Phansiri, the Wizards and Reds are left with the hopes the players who beat them in rounds one or two will advance to the finals this morning, which would allow them to re-enter the consolation side of the tournament for a playback and a shot at third place.
At No. 2 doubles, Windsor's Stieb and Meline won a 6-2, 6-2 first-round match over Palmer Ridge pair Brooke Beyer and Paiton Riggle, but ran into trouble in the quarterfinals against defending state champion duo Tory Louis and Claire Dibble of Cheyenne Mountain.
"This is farther than we've ever been, and now we need to figure out how to get over the next hurdle," Windsor coach Chris Minear said. "Hopefully, we'll get playbacks (today), which will be new territory for us, as well.
"(Stieb and Meline) got better and better with each match, trusted each other, and had a lot of fun."
