Castle View

  • The volleyball team (19-4) was seeded third in the Class 5A regional state pairings and will host the Region 3 tournament on Nov. 4. The other two teams in the tourney are Lakewood and Broomfield and the winner of each of the 12 regional events will advance to the Nov. 10-11 state tournament at the Denver Coliseum.
  • The Sabercats football team won the season opener against Douglas County but lost the next eight games. Castle View hopes to wrap up the season with a win Nov. 2 against Rangeview. However, it won't be easy if history prevails, as Castle View lost last season's game against the Aurora school, 21-6.

Douglas County

  • Senior Linda Corrales was 12th in the Class 5A girls race at the state cross country championships on Oct. 28. Her time was 18:47.2. Senior Brock Helvey was 40th in the boys race with a time of 16:40.7.
  • The volleyball team (10-13) drew a No. 32 seed in the Class 5A regional volleyball pairings and will go against Fruita Monument and Fairview in the Region 5 qualifying tournament.
  • Aurora Central is the Nov. 3 opponent for the football team (2-7 overall) and the Huskies are hoping to repeat a victory over the Trojans. Douglas County won last year's game, 27-6.

Lutheran

  • The volleyball team, the No. 2 seed in the Class 3A state playoffs, will host the Region 2 qualifying tournament, which includes Bayfield and Florence. The Lions (20-3) have had previous playoff success compiling, a 40-16 record.
  • There should be plenty of passing when the football team meets Green Mountain in a 3A West Metro League finale on Nov. 3. The game features the league's top two passers in Lutheran's junior Nick Moss and Green Mountain's Trey Towndrow. Moss is averaging a league-best 193.2 yards per game passing and he has the league's top receiver in sophomore Andre Norman, who is averaging 122.4 receiving yards per game.

Rock Canyon

  • The volleyball team (16-7) is seeded 10th in the Class 5A regional pairings and will host Rampart and Grandview on Nov. 4 in the Region 10 tournament that will qualify one team for the state tournament.
  • Junior Collin Romero will be out to finish the regular season strong when the football team plays Mountain Vista on Nov. 3. Romero is one of the Mount Evans League leaders with 419 receiving yards and 26 catches, for an average of 16.1 yards a catch. He has 435 returns yards, with 229 coming of kickoff returns and 206 on punt returns.
  • The third-place finish in the Class 5A cross country championships on Oct. 28 was the best ever for the girls team. Sophomore Hope James led the Jaguars with a 13th-place finish and there were two freshmen, a sophomore and junior among the runners that counted in the scoring.

Valor Christian

  • Sophomore Cole Sprout left little doubt he was the top Class 4A boys runner at the state cross country championships on Oct. 28 as he set a course record of 15:42.1 and was 14 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher.
  • The volleyball team (18-5) is seeded second in the Class 4A pairings and will host the Region 2 qualifying tournament Nov. 4 with Mountain View and George Washington the other two teams vying for the one state tournament ticket up for grabs.
  • The undefeated football team has clinched the Mount Lincoln league championship and will face Fountain Fort Carson on Nov. 3 in the regular-season finale. The Eagles have outscored league opponents 43.7 to 11.7 points per game and last season beat Fountain Fort Carson, 45-0.
