Castle View

  • The volleyball team was seeded third among the 12 Class 5A teams for the Nov. 10-11 state tournament at the Denver Coliseum. The Sabercats will be in a pool with Coronado and Continental League rival Rock Canyon. Castle View plays both its pool games on Nov. 10 and opens against Rock Canyon, which it beat 3-0 on Sept. 14. Overall, the Sabercats own an 8-3 series record against Canyon and are 0-1 against Coronado after a loss in 2008.
  • Connor Kelly, Landon Williams and Cole Oster were three of the top defenders on the football team and all were juniors, which could provide a foundation to start the rebuilding process. Castle View finished the season 1-9 and has gone 6-24 over the past three seasons. This season's team was outscored by 140 points.
  • The soccer team lost a second-round Class 5A playoff game 3-1 to Fort Collins on Nov. 1 and wound up with an 11-5-1 record, which was the most wins in seven seasons. Senior Dillon O'Connor paced the team with 14 goals and 40 points in 15 games.

Douglas County

  • The volleyball team was ousted from the state playoffs after dropping 3-0 matches to Fruita Monument and Fairview in the Region 5 tournament on Nov. 3. The final 10-15 record was the best for the Huskies in the past three seasons.
  • Coach Gene Hill's football team won two of its last three games, including a 37-18 victory over Aurora Central on Nov. 4. The team wound up with a 3-7 overall record.

Rock Canyon

  • The volleyball team, seeded 10th, will be in Pool 3 at the Nov. 10-11 Class 5A state volleyball tournament and will face Continental League rival Castle View in its first pool game on Nov. 11. The Jaguars dropped a 3-0 match to the Sabercats on Sept. 14. Rock Canyon advanced to the state meet with 3-0 wins over Grandview and Rampart in the Region 10 tournament that was held Nov. 4.
  • In his first season as Rock Canyon football coach, Brian Tinker led the Jaguars to a 5-5 record but the team lost four of five games in the Mount Evans League.
  • Senior volleyball player Keeley Davis was a first-team All-American selection by Under Armour. She has been invited to play in the All-America match on Dec. 15 in Kansas City.

Valor Christian

  • The football team begins its bid for an eighth state championship in nine years when the Eagles host Chaparral on Nov. 10. The teams met in a 2015 playoff game that Valor won, 47-3. The Eagles have an impressive 35-1 record in the state playoff competition.
  • The volleyball team, seeded second among 4A teams, will be in a pool with Pueblo West and Cheyenne Mountain at the Nov. 10-11 state tournament at the Denver Coliseum. The Eagles defeated George Washington, 3-0, and Mountain View, 3-1, in the Region 2 tournament on Nov. 4 to earn a berth in the state tournament. Valor was a state semifinalist last season but lost to Holy Family.
