  • Wrestling camp targets top-flight grapplers

    FORT COLLINS – State wrestling titles are one thing. But Rich Estrella, the head coach of the Air Force Academy wrestling program and former U.S. Olympic coach, thinks those state champions could be national collegiate championships.

  • ThunderHawks welcome back veterans, add depth for 2011

    HENDERSON – Prairie View girls soccer coach Jason Oulman likes what’s on tap for his ThunderHawks team in 2011,

  • Eagles soar over Lady Hawks

    After halftime, the PVHS Lady ThunderHawks returned to the hardwoods with intent; intent on stopping 6’1” Lauren Huggins and on running a smoother offensive attack of their own. Their efforts were rewarded as they outscored the visiting Eagles. But it was already too late for the ‘Hawks as Heritage rolled to a 65-51 post season-ending victory.
