  • Oldham, Rampart are shut down; Grizzlies focus their defense on star

    HIGHLANDS RANCH - This was it for Donovan Oldham, the end of high school basketball career.

He scored just two points and the Rams' offense was stagnant as an oversized ThunderRidge team ended their season with...

  • Rampart eliminated as offense vanishes in 4th quarter

    Junior sensation Nicea Eliely began the night with easy transition layups and a smothering dose of shutdown defense. And for a few moments there, Rampart looked like it would breeze to its second consecutive Class 5A quarterfinals appearance. Ralston Valley adjusted, however, and things ended on a down note for the Rams. Eliely scored 18...

  • The Gazette's Peak Performer of the week: Shelby Megyeri, Manitou Springs girls' basketball

    When the Manitou Springs girls' basketball team walked off the court after losing to rival St. Mary's on Feb. 6, there were two ways for the Mustangs to handle it - sulk or improve. They chose the latter, and led by super sophomore Shelby Megyeri, Manitou Springs got its revenge in a 50-39 win Saturday that clinched the 3A Tri-Peaks district...

  • Weather has high school spring teams scampering for practice times

    Sun finally broke through Monday, yet there was little to rejoice about for spring sports teams around the Pikes Peak region. Last week - the first week spring sports could officially practice - saw snow that sent teams scurrying indoors to practice in gyms, hit the weights again or break out the shovels. The weather hampered coaches who...

  • St. Mary's girls stunned by ninth seed; Manitou OK with No. 4

    When St. Mary's coach Mike Burkett clicked open the girls' Class 3A state playoff bracket Sunday afternoon, he groaned. What happened, he thought.
