In the dry, thin air of central Colorado, where the vast plains come to an abrupt end in the harsh sagebrush foothills of the Rockies, the Goddess Kali reigns supreme. There, in the chill shadow of the Flatirons, her minions train for battle. Glorying in the sounds of combat, the disciples of Kali are a fierce and savage tribe whose love for victory is surpassed only by their love for their fellow warriors. Their devotion to Kali gives them the power to conquer. After tying for 3rd in the nation in 2010, Kali has been on the hunt for a title, qualifying for Nationals the past three years in a row, winning the Southcentral region for the last two. A 13th place finish in 2014 followed by a 5th place finish in 2015 & 2016 proves an eerie warning to Kali’s rivals as their thirst for victory remains unquenched. Complete with the addition of many new fiery Kalis, and the untamed remainder of last year’s team, Colorado Kali will be a force to be reckoned with this year.
