  • ACHS quarterback goes from the field to the coaches box

    Alexis Murillo-Roldan was the starting quarterback for Adams City's football team this fall.

    He couldn't finish the season because of a head injury he sustained against Rangeview midway through the year.

    So he turned to coaching, an extra set of eyes in the sky.

    "The coaching side of football can be quite fun, but at times very difficult," he said. "Coaching can be fun because you get to see the people you're coaching improve and become better athletes."

    The record for the Adams City football team doesn’t show it, and the scoreboard may not reflect it. But the Eagles are going in the right direction. 

    The season for the Eagles came to a close Friday in a 14-0 loss to Boulder at home in the season finale. And while it is easy to say it was a forgettable season for a squad that lost all 10 of their games, coach Jesse Jones knows his team is heading in the right direction. 

  • PVHS rights football ship, finishes at .500

     DENVER – Here’s the perfect definition of a split football season.

    Prairie View lost its first five games of the season, then finished the season with a five-game winning streak. The season ended with a come-from-behind, 14-3 win against Far Northeast at Evie Dennis Stadium Oct. 27.

  • Riverdale Ridge freshman makes a detour for state cross country debut

     COLORADO SPRINGS – Riverdale Ridge freshman Molly Lancaster planned all along to participate in a competitive soccer match Oct. 27.

    But she had to make an adjustment to run in the state 3A cross country meet at Norris Penrose Equestrian Center first. 

    No problem. She finished 69th in a time of 21:40.

  • Adams City scoreboard Oct. 31

    Boulder High School used two touchdowns from Preston Stansel to beat Adams City 14-0 in Commerce City Oct. 26. It was the season finale for both teams.

    COMMERCE CITY – It’s been a tough year for the Adams City football team, and Friday’s loss didn’t make matters any better. 

    The out-manned Eagles had no answer for Northglenn’s high-powered offense that cruised to a 48-0 victory. 

    The defeat wasn’t the most frustrating part for Adams City’s coach Jesse Jones. It was the lack of competitiveness he saw from his squad.

  • Baseball mercy rule may get a tweak

     AURORA – The Colorado High School Activities Association’s baseball committee wants to change its mercy rule.

                The proposal is exactly the same as what the state’s prep softball teams use. The game ends when one team is ahead by 10 or more runs after the fifth inning, 15 or more runs after the fourth or 20 or more runs after the third.

                Fort Lupton baseball coach Stephen Flickinger likes it.
