On campus: News and notes from local high school sports programs

Highlands Ranch

  • One thing that can usually be banked on at the school is a good volleyball team. Over the past 10 seasons, the Falcons have averaged 19.3 wins and the team is off to an 8-1 start this year.
  • The football team has notched three straight wins to start the season. However, the schedule toughens as the Falcons host Regis Jesuit, a team that won the past five games against the Falcons, on Sept. 22 at Shea Stadium.
  • Brad Bedell scored twice as the Falcons' boys soccer team snapped a four-game losing streak with a 3-2 win over Arvada West on Sept. 16.

Mountain Vista

  • Senior pitcher Makayla Hoselton leads the Continental League with a 1.66 earned run average through 12 games. She has pitched 33.2 innings with a 6-0 record and one save.
  • The boys tennis team has compiled a 6-0 record this season and No. 3 singles player senior Brian Benson has won all six of his matches.
  • It's been a slow start for the boys soccer team, which has started 1-6-0 and have been shut out four times.

Rock Canyon

  • There are two new cross country record holders who have set school bests this season. Senior Chris Theodore's 15:23 set the new boys standard while sophomore Hope James ran a record 18:30.
  • Junior quarterback Adam Mullen has been effective so far this season, with a 118.3 quarterback rating in three games. He has completed 32 of 62 passes for 601 yards with eight touchdowns and one interception.
  • Senior infielder Shelby Lamkin is pacing the softball team with a .630 batting average and a .667 on-base percentage.

ThunderRidge

  • Doug Nisenson picked a meaningful game to earn his first win as head coach with a 51-34 victory over rival Mountain Vista on Sept. 15.
  • ThunderRidge, which lost games in 2014 and 2015, has resumed its dominance in the football rivalry with Mountain Vista as the Grizzlies swelled their advantage to 10-2 in the series.
  • Shea Holmes, a senior, scored a goal and had an assist for the United States' Under 19 Women's National soccer team that defeated the U20 Iran squad, 5-0, to win the CFA International Women's Youth Football Tournament on Sept. 14 in Dunyon, China.

SkyView Academy

  • The old adage of "wait until next year" could apply to the girls volleyball team as nine of the 15 girls on team are underclass players. Still, the Hawks have won three of eight matches this season.
  • It doesn't get much easier for the winless soccer team (0-6-0) with games scheduled against Jefferson Academy, Manual and Denver Christian. SkyView is a combined 2-5 against those team with both wins coming against Manual.

Valor Christian

  • The Eagles' football team will put a 13-game winning streak on the line Sept. 22 against Pomona, the team that Valor beat in the past two state title games. However, the Panthers have won regular-season games against the Eagles the past two seasons.
  • Junior twin brothers Ben and Ty Findlow have gone their separate ways athletically. Ben is on the tennis team and Ty plays golf for the Eagles.
  • Coach Dave Atencio's softball team has compiled an impressive record over the past four seasons. The three-time defending 4A state champions are 82-3 including an 11-0 mark through games of Sept. 16.
