Castle View

  • The football team hopes to snap a seven-game losing streak on Oct. 27 in a game against Arvada West. The Sabercats defeated the Wildcats a year ago, 26-14.
  • The Sabercats' soccer team, 4-1-1 in its last six matches, heads to District 20 Stadium in Colorado Springs for a first-round Class 5A playoff game against Rampart. Castle View holds a 2-0-1 record against Rampart but the last game played between the schools was in 2011 and ended in a 2-2 deadlock. Castle View will be led by Continental League scoring leader Dillon O'Connor, who has 40 points on 15 goals and 10 assists.
  • The volleyball team remained No. 1 in the CHSAANow.com Class 5A poll but faces a challenge in the Continental League with five teams within a game of first place heading into the final week of the regular season, which started with games on Oct. 24.

Douglas County

  • First-year coach Randy Freeman's soccer team finished with an 8-7-0 record, which was a dramatic improvement after the Huskies compiled a record of 0-14-1 in 2016. The eight wins tied for the most victories for the Huskies in seven seasons.
  • The football team faces Legacy in an Oct. 26 game, seeking its first win ever over the Lightning. The teams have only played twice and Legacy won, 37-17, last season.

Lutheran

  • The football team has surrendered 103 points in the last three games and it doesn't get any easier with an Oct. 27 game looming against Conifer. Lutheran is 0-3 in games played against Conifer and has allowed an average of 31 points in those setbacks.
  • The volleyball team saw its 14-match winning streak end with a 3-0 loss to Bishop Machebeuf on Oct. 18. The Lions, fifth in the 3A CHSAANow.com poll, played third-ranked Faith Christian for the Metro League championship on Oct. 24, after press time.

Rock Canyon

  • The cross country teams will be well represented at the Oct. 28 state cross country championships in Colorado Springs. The boys team, with a one-two finish by Chris Theodore and Easton Allred, was second at the regionals. The girls team, led by a sixth-place run by Hope James, also was second to qualify to compete for the team title at the state meet.
  • Rock Canyon has three players among the Mount Evans football league statistical leaders. Senior cornerback Zach Wilson leads with five interceptions and senior linebacker Zachary Hanna is tops with 85 tackles. Senior defensive end Vincent Curi has eight sacks, which ranks him second.

Valor Christian

  • The softball team's bid for a third straight 4A state championship was derailed in the second round on Oct. 20 at Aurora Sports Park when Silver Creek stunned the Eagles by posting a 5-1 victory. Valor made three errors, gave up three unearned runs, two home runs and the five runs were the most allowed this season. Valor finished with a 22-1 record.
  • The football team seems to be having no trouble alternating Blake Stenstrom and Luke McCaffrey at quarterback. The two combined to go 11-for-14 for 187 yards and three touchdowns in a 48-7 win over Highlands Ranch on Oct. 20. Top-ranked and unbeaten Valor is 3-0 in the Mount Lincoln league and has outscored opponents 133-21 heading into a Oct. 27 league game against Poudre. Last season, the Eagles posted a 49-14 victory over the Impalas.
  • The volleyball team was ranked second in the CHSAANow.com Class 4A poll that was released Oct. 23.
