The growth of Air Academy striker Austin Dewing could be summed up in one assist last week - the game-winning assist against Cheyenne Mountain.

In the afternoon, the Kadets blanked Durango 4-0 in the championship game. Following last year's heartbreaking loss in the Class 4A state...
Adam Bull didn't say much of anything leading up to St. Mary's season opener against Manitou Springs at the Grace Center. For the past three years he has served as the backup goalkeeper for the Pirates, but on Tuesday night the senior was finally given his shot to shine.
