  • Ramsey: Colorado College's Sarah Schweiss just keeps scoring goals

    It's autumn in Colorado Springs, which means Sarah Schweiss is scoring goals within city limits. On Friday, the Colorado College junior was doing what she's been doing the past 15 years. As she sprinted toward the net against UNLV, Schweiss faced a severe, if not quite impossible angle. A score from this angle is about as common as a total...

  • City for Champions supporters tout benefits of downtown Colorado Springs sports venue

    For years, downtown Tulsa, Okla., had a reputation as quiet and dull - the kind of place where the sidewalks were rolled up at night. That was before the Tulsa community invested in a major, publicly funded economic development initiative, which included a new downtown civic arena, said Jason Doyle, president of UMB Bank in Colorado Springs...

  • Coach fired over watermelon, ape-like celebrations

    CHARLESTON, S.C. — A high school football coach was fired because of postgame victory celebrations the district superintendent said involved players smashing watermelons and making ape-like sounds. Superintendent Nancy McGinley said Tuesday she was contacted last week by a board member who said the parent of an opposing player was offended by...

  • This week's AP prep football rankings

    Here is The Associated Press high school football poll. The poll includes first-place votes in parentheses, season record, total points and last week’s ranking, as voted upon by a statewide panel of sports writers.

  • Air Force Academy to remain silent on athletic department issues

    The Air Force Academy says leaders have said all they can about a review of the school's athletic department that came after a player misconduct scandal. A spokesman, Lt. Col. Brus Vidal, says Air Force regulations mandate that the review, called an "inspection" in the service's language, be kept secret. Vidal said superintendent Lt. Gen...

  • ESPN's Skip Bayless says rape allegations helped Kobe Bryant sell sneakers

    It’s not exactly a marketing plan Nike suits would draw up. And the plan, constructed on ESPN’s “First Take” by Skip Bayless, is one he likely wants to now tear up. Bayless reasoned Kobe Bryant’s rape case in Colorado eventually raised public awareness for the Lakers star, making him more marketable. “He failed in his first sneaker deal...

  • Oscar Pistorius starts serving prison term

    PRETORIA, South Africa — Oscar Pistorius was taken away in a police van Tuesday to start serving a five-year prison sentence for killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. A South African judge cited the "gross negligence" the Olympic runner showed when he shot Steenkamp multiple times through a toilet cubicle door in his home when she delivered the...

  • Air Force football will be rested for important game

    Air Force can kill two giant birds with one stone in its next game, and the schedule seems to be lending a hand. With a win at Army on Nov. 1 the Falcons (5-2) would capture the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy and earn bowl eligibility. They'll enter that game rested and fresh from this season's second and final open date of the season. "It's...

  • Rocktober redux with the Royals? Rethink that

    We've seen this before, right? The kneejerk reaction from many is to compare the streaking Kansas City Royals to the 2007 Colorado Rockies. With so many parallels, it's no wonder. These Royals have won eight postseason games in a row and find themselves ready to open the World Series against San Francisco on Tuesday. Seven years ago Colorado...

  • With TD mark in bag, Manning can set more recordsMore records in Manning's sights

    DENVER - Next up for Peyton Manning: the NFL passing yardage record. It's one of the few glamorous passing records Manning doesn't own, now that he has broken Brett Favre's mark for touchdown throws. Manning needs about 5,000 more yards to surpass Favre in that category, and is on track to finish his career with numbers, across the board, that...

  • This week's Peak Performer: Austin Dewing, Air Academy soccer

    The growth of Air Academy striker Austin Dewing could be summed up in one assist last week - the game-winning assist against Cheyenne Mountain. Dewing, one of the most dangerous strikers in the state, took the ball to the end line, beat an Indians defender and had a clear lane to goal. Instead of shooting, Dewing passed back against the grain...

  • Arizona blanks L.A. in USL Pro exhibition at revamped stadium of Colorado Springs Switchbacks

    In what was a spirited, if at times scrappy game, Arizona United SC defeated Los Angeles Galaxy II 1-0 in the Colorado Pro Soccer Kickoff on Saturday evening. Hosted at the Colorado Springs Switchback FC's freshly redeveloped Sand Creek Stadium, the match was a preview of two teams whom the Switchbacks FC will face next season as Colorado...

  • 10 takeaways from Air Force's win over New Mexico

    Here's a look back at some of the highlights from Air Force's 35-31 Mountain West Conference win Saturday over New Mexico at Falcon Stadium: THE NUMBERS 0 - Times Air Force had trailed at home through three games, a run that ended when New Mexico scored the game’s first touchdown after 2 minutes, 48 seconds. 4 - Turnovers caused this...

  • Air Force outscores New Mexico behind fullbacks, passing game and late defense

    Jalen Robinette reached up over his head at about the 15-yard line and hauled in a pass in stride. From there, he just played by feel. He shrugged off an attempted tackle when a cornerback tried to grab his shoulders, he then stopped on a dime, sending another defensive back flying by him. Only one New Mexico defender was left, and the...
