  • Doherty football players look back, ahead on National Signing Day

    It seemed unfair at the time. The three seniors who signed their letters of intent to play football Wednesday still couldn't believe how things ended in the fall.

  • Canon City earns key extra-inning win over Mesa Ridge in baseball

    Neiko Paolino's timely three-run double to the gap clinched Cañon City's 10-inning, 6-2 win over Mesa Ridge on Tuesday.
