On Campus: News and notes from local high school sports programs

Castle View

  • The softball team scored an average of 10 runs in four previous games heading into the week of Sept 25.
  • The volleyball team, top ranked in the CHSAANow.com 5A poll and unbeaten in 10 matches this season against Colorado opposition, had tough assignments in games against Highlands Ranch on Sept. 26 and Regis Jesuit on Sept. 28. (Both games were after press time.)

Douglas County

  • All-Continental League third baseman Alley Kim was struck by a line drive off the bat that bent the brim of her cap on Sept. 18 and she missed the Sept. 20 game against Legend because her eye was still swollen. She returned for the Sept. 22 game.
  • Senior Abbey Montoya improved her batting average to .725 after 14 softball games with a 3-for-3 game with a homer and double in the Sept. 22 win over Castle View.
  • On the football field, senior punter Christian Bemiller has the top 5A average in the state at 40.5 yards for 16 punts, with four inside the 20-yard line.

Lutheran

  • The boys soccer team snapped a three-game losing streak with its Sept. 22 victory over Bishop Machebeuf.
  • It is unlikely that the school record for a volleyball winning streak will be broken in the near future. The girls volleyball team took a 10-match winning streak in games the week of Sept. 25, but Alicia Oakes' 2012 team won the 2A state title with a 28-0 record and then her team won the first seven match of the 2013 season to stretch the streak to 35 matches. Oakes is still the Lions coach.

Rock Canyon

  • Punter Devin Reichert has been a weapon for the football team through four games, with four field goals, which is tied for the 5A state lead. He has converted 12 extra point kicks to give him 24 points.
  • The softball team will play the third of three games in four days Sept. 28 when the Jaguars meet ThunderRidge, a team which it has beaten in the past two games played between the schools.

Valor Christian

  • Kicker Brian Brogan benefits from playing on an explosive football team but the sophomore has done his part, making 4-of-4 field goal attempts and adding 16 conversion kicks to give him a 5A-leading 28 kick-scoring points.
  • The boys golf team, which has won five state championships, will be seeking its sixth at the 4A state championship tournament that will be held Oct. 2-3 at Raccoon Creek near Littleton.
  • Junior Ethan Zemla leads a strong defense for the football team, which has recorded nine sacks for a minus 60 yards in four games for an average of 2.3 per game. Zelma has three of the sacks.
