WHERE’S THE LOVE?

Rampart opens its season tonight at Rock Canyon.
Liberty gets started tonight at home against Chatfield.
In the 4A poll, Discovery Canyon received 15 votes, but is not ranked in the top 10. Air Academy received eight votes.
In girls’ basketball, Air Academy is ranked No. 4 in 4A.
