  • Rampart makes finals pitch at state swim meet

    FORT COLLINS - The narrative can get old for the best Class 5A swim teams in the Pikes Peak Region.

    After struggling through Friday's preliminaries with a chest cold, Rampart senior swimmer Lindsey Horning told Dan Greene, her coach, that a much better result was in store for Saturday's 5A Metro League finals.

  • Cheyenne Mountain dominant in winning PPAC league swimming title

    Cheyenne Mountain's girls' swim and diving team lunged into the pool after winning its second Pikes Peak Athletic Conference championship in three years.
