  • Palmer Ridge field hockey backed by goalie Cheradyn Pettit in advancing to semifinals

    Monument - Right off the bat, Cherry Creek took to the attack. Lucky for Palmer Ridge, Cheradyn Pettit was in goal.

  • Palmer Ridge might have easier path to state field hockey title game, but it won't be easy

    It'll be no easy task for Palmer Ridge to get back to the field hockey state championship game like it did in 2012. But at least this year's path might be a little easier than last year's. "We did like getting third (seed) so we don't have to go through CA (Colorado Academy)," Palmer Ridge coach Paul Lewis said. "If we had lost to (Cherry...

    PUEBLO - After nearly 15 hours of delays to 4A boys' state tennis the first two days of the tournament, the clouds finally cleared enough to pack in a full day of action Saturday at Pueblo City Park.

  • Air Academy off to strong start in 4A state tennis tournament

    PUEBLO - The rain may have delayed play at the 4A state tennis tournament, but it couldn't stop Air Academy's Stefan Orton-Urbina, who advanced in the No. 2 singles bracket with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Northridge's Jesus Quinones.

    DENVER - Pine Creek's No. 3 singles player Josh Haddad was the area's only hope to make a splash Thursday at the state tournament in Denver, but that hope lasted only briefly.

  • Philippine player's short stint in Colorado Springs tennis could be lasting

    The best players at the state tennis tournaments often come in a flash, etching their short-lived legacies before leaving as underclassmen for national circuits and renowned academies. It happens every year. And sooner or later it will happen to Sand Creek tennis when it loses its only state qualifier in 2014, freshman Jan Seno, whose...

  • Air Academy ends Cheyenne Mountain's 15-year reign in regionals

    The gallery at Cheyenne Mountain High School grew restless. Whispering and fidgeting. Craning their necks and pointing. Trying every way possible to figure out the name of the Sand Creek player that looked to have Air Academy's Keenan Kaltenbacher down and out in the No. 1 singles finals at Class 4A Region 6. His name, Jan Seno, pronounced...

  • Air Academy nearly locks up boys' tennis regional, dethroning CM

    Air Academy No. 1 singles player Keenan Kaltenbacher didn't know what he was more excited about Thursday - that he just beat Vanguard's Joseph Adducci in the semifinals to earn a spot in Friday's boys' tennis finals match at the Class 4A Region 6 tournament, or that the Kadets firmly planted themselves ahead of host Cheyenne Mountain in the...

  • Mesa Ridge's Bentley finishes 4th; Cheyenne Mountain takes 3rd in team race

    PUEBLO - Over the weekend, and for most of the year, Cheyenne Mountain coach Bill Paulson said he wasn't sure if anyone could hang with Valor Christian in the Class 4A boys' golf state tournament. That included his Indians team, a noted powerhouse with state contenders Wilson Belk and Cole Anderson. The Eagles, a foursome loaded with four...

  • Mendoza leads Manitou Springs to top 10 finish

    Manitou Springs coach Ken Vecchio went into the Class 3A boys' golf state tournament with a couple of goals: get one player in the top 10 and get the team to finish in the top 10.
