Athletics Updates and Information

Posted November 14, 2023

Big week for Grizzly Athletics as Monday is the first official day of Winter Sports for high school. 

HS Boys’ Basketball: This year the Grizzlies are under new management as Denver Scholarship Counselor Elijah Huff has taken over the program. Coach Huff brings a wealth of experience to the Grizzlies and has had the Grizzlies working on grades, behavior, and basketball skills for the past month in preparation for the season. He feels the Grizzlies have the pieces to be a very good team this year.

HS Girls’ Basketball: This year the Lady Grizzlies hope to capitalize on the experience the players bring to the team. The Grizzlies return 6 varsity letterwomen all who have at least 2 years of varsity experience. Coach Jones and Coach Valencia have been facilitating off season workouts and the coaching staff has high expectations for the team this year. 

MS Volleyball: The Grizzly Cubs won their first game last week as they defeated the Bryant Webster Bulldogs. The Grizzlies will have practice twice this week as this can be considered a bye week. 

MS Flag Football: The Grizzlies will host Manual-McAullife this week on Tuesday at 4pm. 

Congratulations to Jadelyn Blanco as she has been selected to play in the Frontier League Volleyball All Star game to be played this Monday evening at 6:30pm at Sheridan High School. 

Also Congratulations to Luis Roman, as he has been selected to participate in the DPS Boys Soccer All Star Game this Wednesday at East High School. Action is scheduled for 7pm. 

A Grizzly Roar goes out to Mr. Johnny who held his first Esports tournament last Wednesday. He had 6 participants all vying for bragging rights to be named Bruce Randolph’s Smash Brothers Champion. The players had a ton of fun and look forward to this Wednesday’s tournament. 

Another Grizzly Roar goes out to Anai and the Unified Bowling Team who placed 6th at the CHSAA regional held last Wednesday. Great work with the team and all of the sacrifices. Our students had a great time and created memories of a lifetime. Thank you.
