  • It's been and will continue to be a numbers game for the softball team. The players listen and scan their arm bands when in the field or at the plate as coach Dave Rodriguez yells out numbers for certain pitches. Heading into the final week of the season, the players were concentrating on RPI numbers to see if the team qualifies for the 5A state playoffs.
  • The volleyball team remained top-ranked in the CHSAANow.com Class 5A poll despite a 3-1 loss to Highlands Ranch on Sept. 26. The Sabercats face ThunderRidge in its next Continental League match on Oct. 5.
  • Senior soccer player Dillon O'Conner leads the Continental League in points, goals and assists. He had 10 goals and six assists through 11 games.

Douglas County

  • Linda Corrales was the standout for the girls cross country team at the Sept. 30 Polson Ranch Invitational by finishing fifth with a time of 19:09.
  • The softball team, which lost four of its first five games under new coach Dane Craig, has turned into an upper-echelon team in the Continental League heading into the final week of the regular season.
  • The soccer team has been stuck on six wins since Sept. 7 and has lost six consecutive games. Three of those setbacks were in overtime.

Lutheran

  • The football team surrendered 17 points in the fourth quarter in a 41-19 football loss on Sept. 29 to Vista Peak Prep.
  • The volleyball team, ranked sixth in the Class 3A poll, had not lost a set in its previous four matches prior to an Oct. 4 meeting against Peak to Peak.

Rock Canyon

  • The Jaguars' cross country teams displayed potential Sept. 30 at the Polson Ranch Invitational. Chris Theodore was first, edging teammate Easton Allred, as the boys won the team title. The girls, paced by Shannon Osboba's third-place finish, were second and only a point out of first place.
  • Senior volleyball player Keeley Davis leads the Continental League and Class 5A in kills with 244 and an average of 5.4 per set.
  • The football team has been balanced so far this season, averaging 186.8 yards rushing and 174.8 passing. That balance will be needed as the Jaguars face third-ranked and two-time 5A state runners-up Pomona in a Mount Evans League game on Oct. 7.

Valor Christian

  • Three teams are ranked high in the CHSAANow.com polls released Oct. 2. The football team is No. 1 in the Class 5A rankings and the softball team is top-ranked in the 4A poll. The girls volleyball team is No. 3 in the 4A rankings.
  • Three volleyball players lead the Jefferson County 4A hitting percentage statistics. Anna Davis is first followed by Lily Thomason and Courtney Lane.
  • Coach Rod Sherman's football team is undefeated and has fared well against tough non-league competition. The Eagles have outscored opponents an average of 30 to 15, and are averaging 401 yards of total offense per game heading into its Mount Lincoln league opener Oct. 6 against Legend.
