    Doherty didn't take long to hire a new girls' soccer coach. And it didn't have to look far to find one. Craig Decker, previously the coach at Sand Creek, was named the Spartans' new coach late Monday night. Decker lives in District 11 and said applying was a no-brainer. Heck, he'd already applied to the Spartans once before. "The timing was...

  • Ramsey: Cheyenne Mountain captures girls' soccer title with old-school style

    COMMERCE CITY - Elegant. That's the best word to describe Cheyenne Mountain's girls' soccer 4A state champions. The team employed its methodical, thinking woman's approach to edge Broomfield, 2-0, in a title rematch much closer than the score. Cheyenne Mountain is not a scoring machine.

Alex Oberg's goal off a corner kick...

  • Cheyenne Mountain comfortable with its 1-0 victories leading up to girls' soccer final

"A lot of the scores are misleading," Indians coach Tomas Martinez said Monday. "We're...

    A little more than a month ago, The Classical Academy girls' soccer players could have looked at their calendars and seen the date for the state title game. Then they could've looked at their record and put an X through that title game. Instead, they got to work. And Tuesday night the eighth-ranked Titans (11-6-1) will step onto the lush...
