Athletics Announcement - March 5, 2021

I wanted to start this edition by recognizing and thanking our seniors who wrapped up their last basketball season this week.  On the girls team we had Makayla Kinard and Torrie Thurston and for the boys team we had Josh Dennis, Justin Gordon, and Ethan Livingston.  They have all been significant contributors to our basketball programs and I have enjoyed watching them play over the last couple of years.  Their final games are on Saturday against Berthoud with the girls playing at 10:00 am and the boys at noon.  Both games can be seen online on the NFHS Network.

Season C sports for high school officially start practice next week.  Be sure all of your paperwork is completed online along with a current physical.  Schedules for Season C sports are now online.  As we learned in Season B, they tend to change frequently so be sure to check them often.  Fans will be allowed for Season C home games but the numbers will still be limited.  One way to get to see the games is by volunteering to help.  Look for an email in the next week with information about signing up for some of these volunteer opportunities.

Season D preseason workouts are going strong.  If you are interested in any of these high school sports, use the links below to contact the coaches for details.

Boys Lacrosse: Coach Hughes

Boys and Girls Track & Field: Coach Thimsen

Girls Soccer: Coach Sutton & Coach Wilson

Boys Baseball: Coach Carbajal

Girls Golf: Coach Braecklein
