  • CHSAA tabs new assistant commissioner

    Frederick High School athletic director Ernie Derrera will soon be former FHS athletic Ernie Derrera.

  • Watts fits in right at home as PVHS goalkeeper

    COLORADO SPRINGS – It’s safe to say that Prairie View goalkeeper Savannah Watts doesn’t mind the pressure that comes with being the last line of defense on her girls soccer team.

    She made her state playoff debut last year against Grandview and made eight saves. In her second state playoff game – this one against Pine Creek May 9 – she made 20 saves.

  • Everyone's in the act

    Adams City football coach Jesse Jones liked what he saw during the first – and what turned out to be the only – week of spring practice for the Eagles.

    Workouts, scrimmages and weightlifting begin again Monday, June 5.

  • Wilson casts his football lot with Fort Hays (Kan.) State

    Just like his sister, Jordan, Prairie View’s Spencer Wilson wanted a school that wasn’t too close to home.

    But unlike his sister, Spencer Wilson stayed relatively close to home in choosing Fort Hays (Kan.) State. His sister just graduated from the University of Alaska-Fairbanks.

    Spencer Wilson signed his letter of intent May 10 at PVHS.

  • Track season wraps up
  • Track: Adams City's Barrera claims pair of top-five finishes at EMAC meet

    AURORA -- Adams City's Carlos Barrera was fourth in the 200-meter dash (45.77 seconds) and fifth in the 100-meter dash at the Eastern Metro Athletic Conference league track-and-field meet at Aurora Public Schools Stadium. Barrera's time was 11.57 seconds.

    Barrera has the 26th-fastest time in the state at 200 meters. The top 18 qualify for the state meet next week.

    Alex Marquez, Cesar Salazar, Blake McClure and Jacob Marquez ran the 4-by-100-meter relay in a time of 47.04, which was good for eighth place.

  • Fist bump
  • CHSAA tightens up co-op sports teams rules

     AURORA – Schools that want to establish cooperative teams – sports available at one school but not at another – will have to follow tighter rules.

    The Colorado School High School Athletics and Activities Association’s legislative council made that decision during its April 20 meeting at the Radisson Hotel Southeast.

  • Sutherland wants to make new sport a lifetime hobby

    AURORA – It’s Zoe Sutherland’s first year in any form of organized golf, and she has her grandfather to thank.

    “Every since I was a freshman in high school, my grandpa kept telling me I should try golf,” said the Adams City senior. “Mow knowing much about golf or how to pay, I was really skeptical. I finally decided to try it, and I was very surprised how much I really enjoy playing.”

  • Changing of the guard at the top of CHSAA

    AURORA – It was his last chance to speak before the Colorado High School Activities Association’s legislative council.


    As he did, Paul Angelico made sure to thank the council and his staff. He talked about the past seven years of accomplishments – the introduction of chsaanow.com and chsaatv, the new ratings system to determine state playoff teams in team sports, a new concussion law and the state’s rule governing transfers.
