Highlands Ranch

  • The football team has compiled a 6-2 overall but now has to regroup after a 48-7 loss to Valor Christian on Oct. 20. The Falcons face Legend on Oct. 27 and have a 1-3 series record against the Titans, but did win last season's game, 24-8.
  • Cassie Davis, Jill Borgerding and Libby Borgerding have helped the volleyball team gain a fourth-place ranking in the CHSAANow.com Class 5A rankings. The Falcons are on top of the Continental League standings heading into action Oct. 24, but a lot remains to be determined with five teams within a game of first place.

Mountain Vista

  • The girls and boys cross country teams head to the Oct. 28 state meet in Colorado Springs as teams to watch. The boys won the Continental League championship and followed with a Region 1 title with five scoring runners finishing among the top 17. The girls also won the league and Region 5 team titles and had four runners in the top five in the regional meet.
  • The volleyball team jumbled the Continental League title chase with a 3-0 win over Highlands Ranch on Oct. 19. Led by Amanda Keller, Sam Novak and Nicole Lazzell, the Golden Eagles were second-ranked behind Continental League rival top-ranked Castle View in the Oct. 23 CHSAANow.com poll.
  • The football team hopes to avenge a 38-25 loss to Cherokee Trail last season when the teams play Oct. 27.

ThunderRidge

  • Junior Spencer Lambert, the Mount Cameron league rushing leader with 1,136 yards and nine touchdowns, will be looking for running room when the Grizzlies football team takes on Mullen in an Oct. 27 contest. ThunderRidge has lost to the Mustangs the past two seasons.
  • The softball team wound up with a 17-6 record after dropping a 10-4 first round game to Legacy in the Class 5A softball tournament on Oct. 20. Senior Hannah Stanley had two hits, scored twice and drove in a run in the season-ending loss.

Rock Canyon

  • The cross country teams will be well represented at the Oct. 28 state cross country championships in Colorado Springs. The boys team, with a one-two finish by Chris Theodore and Easton Allred, was second at the regionals. The girls team, led by a sixth-place run by Hope James, also was second to qualify to compete for the team title at the state meet.
  • Rock Canyon has three players among the Mount Evans football league statistical leaders. Senior cornerback Zach Wilson leads with five interceptions and senior linebacker Zachary Hanna is tops with 85 tackles. Senior defensive end Vincent Curi has eight sacks, which ranks him second.

SkyView Academy

Both the boys and girls cross country teams will be bound for Colorado Springs on Oct. 28 for the state cross country championships. Led by a second-place finish by junior Tyler Scholl, the boys team qualified by winning the Region 5 meet on Oct. 19. Senior Payton Grove was fourth and the girls team qualified for the state meet with a fourth-place regional finish.

Valor Christian

  • The softball team's bid for a third straight 4A state championship was derailed in the second round on Oct. 20 at Aurora Sports Park when Silver Creek stunned the Eagles by posting a 5-1 victory. Valor made three errors, gave up three unearned runs, two home runs and the five runs were the most allowed this season. Valor finished with a 22-1 record.
  • The football team seems to be having no trouble alternating Blake Stenstrom and Luke McCaffrey at quarterback. The two combined to go 11-for-14 for 187 yards and three touchdowns in a 48-7 win over Highlands Ranch on Oct. 20. Top-ranked and unbeaten Valor is 3-0 in the Mount Lincoln league and has outscored opponents 133-21 heading into a Oct. 27 league game against Poudre. Last season, the Eagles posted a 49-14 victory over the Impalas.
  • The volleyball team was ranked second in the CHSAANow.com Class 4A poll that was released Oct. 23.
