Chaparral

  • The football team will be looking to climb over the .500 mark for the season with a win against ThunderRidge in its fifth game of the campaign on Sept. 29 at Shea Stadium. The Wolverines are 2-5 in the series with the Grizzlies.
  • The boys soccer team has not fared well against ThunderRidge but ended a six-game winless streak against the Grizzlies last season with a 2-1 victory. The teams meet Sept. 28 at Shea Stadium in Highlands Ranch, with ThunderRidge holding a 5-2-1 edge in the series.
  • Senior outfielder Adrienne Visintine is the top 5A softball home run hitter in the state with 10, according to statistics compiled through games of Sept. 24. She is also tops with a 1.722 slugging percentage.

Legend

  • Defense has been a strong point so far this season for the football team. Junior Caden Meis leads 5A statistics in tackles after four games with 58 and a 14.5 average. Senior Tate Wildmeman is second in the state with five sacks.
  • Senior linebacker/strong safety Chad Muma played his first game of the season after surgery to repair a ruptured patella tendon and made 22 total tackles, including one sack in 21-13 loss to Chaparral on Sept. 23.
  • The softball team used its seventh-inning magic in the bottom of the inning to pull out one-run wins over Douglas County on Sept. 20 and Rock Canyon on Sept. 21. The Titans pushed home the winning run in home half of the seventh in a 7-6 victory over Douglas County and scored four runs in the last half inning to secure a 10-9 triumph over Rock Canyon.

Lutheran

  • The boys soccer team snapped a three-game losing streak with its Sept. 22 victory over Bishop Machebeuf.
  • It is unlikely that the school volleyball winning streak will be broken in the near future. The girls volleyball team took a 10-match winning streak into games the week of Sept. 25, but Alicia Oakes' 2012 team won the 2A state title with a 28-0 record and then her team won the first six matches of the 2013 season to stretch the school winning streak to 34 matches. Oakes is still the Lions coach.

Ponderosa

  • Heading into a Sept. 29 game against Pueblo Centennial, the football team is averaging 496 yards a game in total offense and will be playing a team it has beaten the past two seasons by a combined score of 69-0.
  • Ryan Neale, a senior playing No. 1 singles, remains unbeaten with an 8-0 record with state-qualifying tennis regionals scheduled to be completed by Oct. 7.
