  • PVHS lands its first girls basketball win over Bulldogs

    It can’t officially be considered a rivalry until both teams have a win. On Saturday, Prairie View’s varsity girls made it official.
        The ThunderHawks cruised to a historic first against Brighton, scoring 50-39 without giving up the lead to the Bulldogs.

  • Nail-biting finish gives ThunderHawks the win

         This was one of those games. 
        The buzzer sounded as the clock ran out, but the ball was already in the air, launched from beyond the 3-point line.  As it touched the rim of the basket, everyone knew the stakes.  The score was 45-48 Saturday in this hotly contested rivalry game.  The home team surged back from a 13-point deficit, and now the game was almost tied up.
        And “almost” tied up was where the score would stay.

  • PVHS football all-conference

        Five members of Prairie View’s football team were first-team, all-Mountain Plains Conference selections this season.
        They were running back Trask Green-Schoenfeld, wide receiver Jordan Vaden (also a first-team kick returner), offensive lineman Landon Cunning, defensive lineman Robert DeCarlo and linebacker Josiah Cannon.

  • Diaz continues to make gradual improvements

        BRIGHTON – Last year, Marisa Diaz was a freshman at Brighton High School, participating in gymnastics for a three-team school made up of the Brighton, Horizon and Thornton/Northglenn High Schools.
        This year, Diaz attends Eagle Ridge Academy. But the gymnastics part of her life remains same.

  • Chambers dons the prep volleyball togs one more time

    BROOMFIELD – Baylei Chambers, of Eagle Ridge Academy, gave up some of her Sunday afternoon to play volleyball.
        The reason? She was among a handful of seniors from around the state who were chosen to play in the Colorado Coaches of Girls Sports all-state games at Broomfield High School.

  • Matinee start for PVHS-BHS basketball rivalry

        The Dec. 11 basketball doubleheader between Brighton and Prairie View high schools starts a little earlier than usual.
        The boys game starts at 1:30 p.m., and the girls follow at 3 p.m. because of Brighton’s Parade of Lights and its use of the BHS parking lot as the end of the parade route.

  • Correction

        Incorrect information was printed about the number of wild-card points for Prairie View High School’s football team in the Nov. 9 edition of the Commerce City Sentinel Express.
        The ThunderHawks finished 17th in the wild-card standings, just 0.8 of a point away from qualifying for their first state playoff berth.
