  • Student Athlete of the Week Justin Gawrych

    Jack Carlough|Jun 12, 2024

    Very few high school athletes earn the right to hoist multiple team state championship trophies throughout their careers. Last month, the now-graduated Justin Gawrych joined that rare company when he helped the Silver Creek High School boys swim and dive team to its second Class 4A title in four years. Gawrych, who swam for the Raptors while attending Niwot High School, was grateful to have helped Silver Creek secure the ultimate prize twice. "It was super exciting because we went second the...

  • Niwot girls golf takes seventh at Class 4A state tournament

    Jack Carlough|May 29, 2024

    This year's Class 4A state tournament served as another reminder of how much potential lies within the Niwot High School girls golf program. With three competing golfers, including lone senior Mina O'Dell, the Cougars placed seventh in the team standings with a two-round combined score of 555. Head coach Ed Weaver's trio shot a 280 in the first round on Monday, May 20, before cutting off five strokes the next day at the Country Club of Colorado in Colorado Springs. Last year, O'Dell,...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Menbere Sullivan

    Jack Carlough|May 22, 2024

    Only a few weeks removed from her third and final season within the Niwot High School girls soccer program, Menbere Sullivan is already experiencing some nostalgia looking back on her senior campaign. "It was definitely the best high school season I've had," Sullivan said. "Our team was super close all year. Even if it was a super young team, I think the upperclassmen really stepped up. Our team had the same goal and purpose for the whole year, which I think really helped throughout our season....

  • Niwot baseball eliminated by Palisade in regionals

    Jack Carlough|May 22, 2024

    Although disappointed by the season-ending first-round playoff loss, the Niwot High School varsity baseball team left Colorado’s Western Slope with heads held high. The Cougars, who fought their way into regionals by winning seven straight games to close the regular season, pushed host Palisade High School to its limits in the Class 4A Region 4 tournament opener on Saturday, May 18. Niwot tallied 13 hits and scored runs in five different frames but was ultimately undone by walks, errors, and a difficult sixth inning in the 17-10 loss. Palisade,...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Sergio Pimentel

    Jack Carlough|May 15, 2024

    Hitting a baseball, already one of the most difficult tasks in all of sports, became significantly more challenging for Sergio Pimentel when he suffered an orbital fracture last summer. Pimentel's injury occurred when a baseball struck him in the face, tearing a muscle in his right eye that now keeps his pupil permanently dilated. Along with struggling to see in bright environments, Pimentel's right eye now interprets straight lines as curved. Little came easy for Pimentel early in his senior...

  • Niwot baseball closes regular season on six-game winning streak

    Jack Carlough|May 15, 2024

    Earlier this month, Niwot High School baseball head coach Ken Rosales admitted that his team would need a perfect final two weeks of the regular season to potentially qualify for state regionals. Well, six wins later, the Cougars have done everything in their power to make things interesting. Requiring a top-32 spot to make regionals, Niwot stood No. 31 in the Class 4A Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) Selection and Seeding Index as of Sunday, May 12. That is not a final...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Sage Xiong

    Jack Carlough|May 8, 2024

    The Niwot High School boys volleyball program, fresh off its second varsity season, will soon likely have its first player advancing to the college level. After receiving an offer he couldn't refuse, senior Sage Xiong plans on taking his talents to Lakeland University, a Division III college in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Xiong led Niwot in assists (617) this past season as the Cougars' primary setter. "I got a pretty good scholarship to go play there," said Xiong, an Erie High School student who...

  • Niwot baseball heating up at the right time

    Jack Carlough|May 8, 2024

    Fueled by cold bats and inconsistent gloves, the Niwot High School varsity baseball team entered the final day of April riding an eight-game losing streak. However, while their frustrations grew with every narrow defeat, the Cougars never lost faith that their struggles would cease. At Mountain View High School on Tuesday, April 30, the Cougars' trust in themselves was finally rewarded in a 10-8 win over the Mountain Lions. Junior left fielder Jagger Kilpatrick cranked his first high school...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Charlie Shaw

    Jack Carlough|May 1, 2024

    Batting leadoff isn't for everyone, but Charlie Shaw has embraced his critical new role at the top of Niwot High School baseball's lineup. The junior right fielder takes pride in putting early pressure on opposing pitchers before potentially causing chaos on the basepaths. "I want to be a pain in the butt for the pitcher just to get (our offense) started with," Shaw said. Shaw hit leadoff last season before being shelved with an injury, but began this year batting third in the Cougars' order....

  • Niwot's best compete at prestigious Penn Relays in Philadelphia

    Jack Carlough|May 1, 2024

    A small handful of Niwot High School track and field athletes made their way to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, last week for the Penn Relays. The annual meet, held at the University of Pennsylvania's historic Franklin Field from Thursday, April 25 through Saturday, April 27, featured some of the nation's best high school runners, including Niwot's own Addison Ritzenhein. NHS had athletes competing in five different track events. Ritzenhein, a sophomore recently named the Gatorade National Girls...

  • Niwot High baseball looking to move past recent struggles

    Jack Carlough|May 1, 2024

    Things haven't been easy for the Niwot High School varsity baseball team as of late. The Cougars dropped their eighth straight game on Friday, April 26. Although six of the losses came by two runs or fewer, the struggles sting all the same. With only four regular season games remaining as of Sunday, April 28, Niwot's record stands at 6-10 (3-9 Class 4A Longs Peak League). Still, third-year head coach Ken Rosales praised his players' handling of the recent rough patch. "They're not giving up,"...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Margaux Boyer

    Jack Carlough|Apr 24, 2024

    On the soccer pitch, in the classroom, and around the community, Margaux Boyer has accomplished plenty throughout her four years at Niwot High School. A senior captain on the NHS girls soccer team, Boyer is enjoying arguably her best season yet for the 7-3-2 Cougars. The fourth-year varsity defender has contributed a career-high 12 points, including three goals, this spring, with three regular season games still remaining. "It's been great," Boyer said. "The girls are so nice and we're all...

  • Prok sisters lead Niwot track and field at Centaurus Twilight

    Jack Carlough|Apr 24, 2024

    Niwot High School track and field sisters Anna and Mia Prok both impressed at the Centaurus Twilight meet on Friday, April 19 in Lafayette. Anna, a sophomore, took first in the mile with a time of 5 minutes, 6.77 seconds, about seven seconds faster than her teammate and second-place finisher Elise Hagen. Mia, a senior, also topped the two-mile podium after crossing the finish line in under 11 minutes at 10:59.15. Additionally, the elder Prok had seventh-place results in the 200 and 400-meter races. With the help of those two and several...

  • Niwot baseball looking for bats to complement strong pitching

    Jack Carlough|Apr 24, 2024

    Despite its recent dominance on the mound, Niwot High School baseball has been held back by some nagging offensive struggles. On Wednesday, April 17, the Cougars dropped their fourth straight low-scoring game, a 4-2 loss to Thompson Valley High School. Niwot, which fell to 6-6 (3-5 Class 4A Longs Peak League) on the season, managed only 10 total runs throughout the four-game losing streak. “We just have to get back to hitting like we're used to,” said third-year Niwot head coach Ken Rosales. “Ou...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Shen Lam

    Jack Carlough|Apr 17, 2024

    No matter how dominant Niwot High School boys volleyball has been overall this season, falling to Poudre School District on Thursday, April 11, qualified as an absolute gut-punch. The visiting Cougars had their opportunities to put Poudre away for good in the fourth set but ultimately lost in a five-set thriller. Turning the page quickly while learning from what went wrong now becomes the challenge for Niwot, which dropped to 11-3 on the season. While head coach John Miller will offer his own...

  • Niwot takes first in 10 events at Boulder County Track and Field Championships

    Jack Carlough|Apr 17, 2024

    At the Boulder County Track and Field Championships on Saturday, April 13, Niwot High School athletes topped the podium in 10 of the day’s 38 events. The NHS girls took first in the team standings while the Cougar boys placed second behind Erie High School. With about one month remaining until the state championships, several Niwot athletes once again proved themselves as legitimate Class 4A title contenders. Reese Kasper and Jade West continued their impressive junior seasons, standout sophomore Addison Ritzenhein recorded another two-mile w...

  • Niwot suffers consecutive losses to Severance

    Jack Carlough|Apr 17, 2024

    The mood inside Niwot's dugout could not have been more somber. Knowing how many accomplished bats the Cougars own, players and coaches alike were left discouraged following a 2-1 defeat at Severance High School on Saturday, April 13. Niwot mustered only five hits, one more than the Cougars produced two days prior in another loss to those same Silver Knights. Head coach Ken Rosales noted that Niwot's recent struggles at the plate appear more mental than physical. "We're a hitting team, but the...

  • Niwot baseball splits two-game series with Roosevelt

    Jack Carlough|Apr 10, 2024

    While sweeping a regular season series in the Longs Peak League rarely comes easy, Niwot High School baseball head coach Ken Rosales couldn’t help feeling like his Cougars squandered an opportunity in their second meeting with Roosevelt High School. Two days after beating the Roughriders on Tuesday, April 2, Niwot was beset by defensive errors in the two teams’ rematch. Rosales said the Cougars committed seven miscues on their home diamond, leading to a “rough” 4-3 loss. “We definitely did not play our ball,” Rosales said. “I felt we were...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Kingston Staton

    Jack Carlough|Apr 10, 2024

    Running for the Niwot High School track and field program means everything to Kingston Staton. Only a sophomore, he first got to know Niwot's coaches through Real Training, a club team led by longtime Cougar head coach Maurice Henriques. Staton has maintained an appreciation for Niwot's accomplished coaching staff and the wisdom passed down upon him. "It's been incredible," Staton said. "I actually don't even live in Niwot... I've been running here and coming to school here because of the great...

  • Niwot track and field takes on busy first weekend of April

    Jack Carlough|Apr 10, 2024

    The Niwot High School track and field program sent athletes to three different cities, including one in California, during the first weekend of April. Cougar colors were present in Longmont at the Birds of Prey Invitational, in Parker at the Legend Titan Track Clash, and in The Golden State for the renowned Arcadia Invitational and at all venues, Niwot runners enjoyed plenty of success against high-level competition. At the Birds of Prey Invitational, hosted by Skyline High School on Friday, Apr...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Reese Kasper

    Jack Carlough|Apr 3, 2024

    She may not be known by all of her classmates just yet, but Reese Kasper has proven herself quite valuable to the Niwot High School track and field program. Kasper moved from Minnesota to Colorado only two months ago, and while the adjustment has been challenging in some regards, joining track has made things "10 times better." Consequently, the Cougars are also better, particularly in the hurdles. At the second annual Niwot Invitational on Saturday, March 30, Kasper won the 300-meter hurdles...

  • Second annual Niwot Invitational a memorable day for Cougars track and field stars

    Jack Carlough|Apr 3, 2024

    For Kingston Staton, competing on his home track at the second annual Niwot Invitational generated an interesting mix of emotions. While he certainly felt some pressure wanting to represent the Cougars well, the junior hurdler also gained confidence from the meet being held on familiar grounds. Staton had rounded each of those four bends countless times at practice, but was now tasked with proving his talents in front of a larger audience. Particularly in the 300-meter hurdles, the home star shi...

  • Niwot baseball run-rules Greeley Central to close non-league slate

    Jack Carlough|Apr 3, 2024

    Minus one game, Niwot High School baseball hasn’t had any trouble putting up runs early this season. The Cougars closed their non-league slate by hosting Greeley Central High School on Friday, March 29, and sent the Wildcats home with a 20-5 defeat. Although the muddy conditions made things difficult for those on the mound, Niwot’s offense scored multiple runs in all four innings of the mercy-rule shortened affair. “I thought they played well, especially in the weather,” said Niwot head coach Ken Rosales. “It was wet and cold. They did a gre...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Evan Kear

    Jack Carlough|Mar 27, 2024

    The Niwot High School track and field talent factory is churning out another impressive long-distance runner. Only a few meets into his junior season, Evan Kear has compiled several strong results, including one in the 1,600-meter event at the ultra-competitive Broomfield Shootout on Saturday, March 23. He wasn't among his heat's top runners, but Kear left pleased with an 11th-place overall finish at 4 minutes, 32.21 seconds. The four laps essentially played out as Kear expected. After an...

  • Niwot track makes noise at Broomfield Shootout

    Jack Carlough|Mar 27, 2024

    Competing with a shorthanded squad due to spring break, Niwot High School track and field still managed to find success at the Broomfield Shootout on Saturday, March 23. The Cougars girls took first in the team standings while the boys tied for 12th among 35 participating programs. NHS assistant coach Kelly Christensen admitted that it was a low-stress meet for his squad, but he remained impressed by his relay teams, in particular. On the girls' side, Niwot took first in the 4x800 and...

  • Niwot baseball looking to regroup amid two-week break

    Jack Carlough|Mar 20, 2024

    While Niwot High School baseball’s 2-1 start to the season yielded several positives, the Cougars still aim to improve in certain areas. Fortunately for them, they have ample time for some in-season introspection. After beating Timnath and Weld County high schools to open the season, Niwot fell to Silver Creek High School, 4-1, on Tuesday, March 12 — two weeks before its next scheduled game on March 26. Niwot head coach Ken Rosales believes his players have already flushed that home loss and remain motivated to get back on track. “The inten...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Paige Russell

    Jack Carlough|Mar 20, 2024

    Three games into her senior season, Paige Russell has emerged as one of Niwot High School girls soccer's top scoring threats. The fourth-year varsity midfielder has already scored two goals, equaling her total from last season. Yes, it's a small sample size, but Russell's early offensive success shouldn't be overlooked. "It was kind of a big deal for me because I haven't really scored a lot of goals in my high school career," Russell said of her impressive start. Her first score came in Niwot's...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Haden Shaw

    Jack Carlough|Mar 13, 2024

    Bringing Niwot High School baseball back to its once-dominant form means a good deal to Haden Shaw. Although Niwot has bigger goals this spring, the junior catcher believes that playing in the postseason last year helped the Cougars' reascending program gain some outside respect. And in today's age of high school athletics, respect goes a long way. "It was nice to know that Niwot's back on the map," Shaw said. "When I tell everybody on my club teams that I go to Niwot, a lot of people say,...

  • Niwot baseball opens season with pair of convincing wins

    Jack Carlough|Mar 13, 2024

    At the plate, on the mound, and in the field, almost everything was clicking for Niwot High School baseball in the first two games of the new season. The Cougars, loaded with a slew of returning starters, hosted Timnath High School in their season opener on Thursday, March 7. In what was a darkness-shortened five-inning affair, Niwot beat the visiting Cubs, 5-0. Senior Brock Rothstein got the start and struck out six in three innings pitched. Despite some early control issues, which resulted in...

  • Niwot track stars compete at New Balance Indoor Nationals via REAL Training

    Jack Carlough|Mar 13, 2024

    A handful of Niwot High School track and field athletes traveled to Boston, Massachusetts, over the weekend for the New Balance Indoor Nationals.

The event was held from Thursday, March 7 through Sunday, March 10, with races being held at either the TRACK at new balance or the Reggie...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Cassie Chen

    Jack Carlough|Mar 6, 2024

    Armed with more confidence, Cassie Chen is transitioning from the No. 2 doubles line to No. 3 singles entering her junior season on the Niwot High School girls tennis team. While Chen played in a handful of No. 3 singles matches last season, she believes the move won't be too difficult. Her primary concern is contributing her best wherever Niwot head coach Aimee Hites needs her most. "I'm really excited to play singles this year and just be able to work with the team," Chen said. She still must...

  • Niwot baseball aiming to build on last season's success

    Jack Carlough|Mar 6, 2024

    Under second-year head coach Ken Rosales, the Niwot High School baseball program took a major step forward last spring. The Cougars finished 14-9 - the team's most wins since 2014 - and never lost more than two straight games en route to reaching the postseason for the first time in seven years. While the 2023 campaign ultimately ended in disappointment with a loss to Riverdale Ridge High School in the Class 4A Region 7 championship game, Niwot has plenty of momentum entering its 2024 campaign....

  • Where Are They Now? - Tara Harbert

    Jack Carlough|Feb 28, 2024

    After receiving support from countless individuals throughout her softball and baseball playing careers, Niwot High School graduate Tara Harbert is now lending her knowledge to the next generation. Harbert, a 2002 NHS graduate who later played on the USA Baseball Women's National Team, spent this past fall coaching junior varsity softball at Mountain Vista High School in Highlands Ranch. Additionally, she and her fiancé, Bryan, have committed themselves to supporting their three children's...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Tracy Yu

    Jack Carlough|Feb 28, 2024

    Niwot High School senior Tracy Yu will be pulling double duty this spring for the first time in two years. Yu is currently preparing for her fourth season on the Cougars' girls tennis team and is rejoining Niwot's girls soccer squad after taking last season off. Her weekday afternoons may be chaotic at times, but her passion for both sports should prevail. Regarding her return to the pitch, Yu was convinced by teammate Margaux Boyer to attend a low-stress summer kickaround. "I definitely really...

  • Silver Creek boys swim entering new season with high expectations

    Jack Carlough|Feb 28, 2024

    With both experience and talent, this year’s Silver Creek High School boys swim team may be one of the more confident groups longtime head coach Debbie Stewart has ever led. The Raptors are coming off three straight top-two team finishes at the Class 4A state championships, including a state title in 2021, and bring back several of their star swimmers. “They're hungry for a really good winning season,” Stewart said. “It's exciting to see the camaraderie and the hard work that they're all putting in and what they did put in (during) their offsea...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Rohit Das

    Jack Carlough|Feb 21, 2024

    Rohit Das wasn't exactly left satisfied with how his junior season played out on the Niwot High School boys basketball team. Yes, he enjoyed several strong moments, but the Cougars' final record of 7-16 weighs heavy. "It was up and down, and it was a little bit disappointing," the junior point guard said. "I thought we could have won a lot more games. But our team was young, so it'll be fun next year." Das did, however, play a key role in Niwot winning three of its final four games. At Mountain...

  • Gavin Burrage wraps up NHS wrestling career at state tournament

    Jack Carlough|Feb 21, 2024

    Under the bright lights of Ball Arena in Denver, Gavin Burrage closed an impressive four-year Niwot High School wrestling career at the Class 4A state championships. The senior qualified for state in the 175-pound division and after dropping his first-round match, advanced in the consolation bracket by pinning Thomas Jefferson High School's Miles Anderson in only 32 seconds on Friday, Feb. 16. Niwot wrestling head coach Bobby Matthews was thrilled to see Burrage's hard work pay off on the...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Phoebe Donovan

    Jack Carlough|Feb 14, 2024

    Nobody impressed Niwot High School girls swim head coach Ella Thramann more this past season than sophomore Phoebe Donovan. After finding little success during her freshman season - her first on a competitive team - Donovan took it upon herself to improve, and the results followed. Donovan became a key member of Niwot's state-qualifying 200-yard medley relay team and was one of the Cougars' best in the breaststroke. "She was a C Team freshman last year, joined Flatiron's (swimming club) and...

  • Niwot High girls swim places 15th at state, diver Izzy Fay wins gold

    Jack Carlough|Feb 14, 2024

    Navigating the Class 4A state championships was a new experience for many on the Niwot High School girls swim and dive team. Despite their youth, the Cougars held their own with 94 team points, finishing 15th out of 31 schools. Niwot's best individual result came courtesy of junior diver Izzy Fay, who scored a personal record 538.30 points in the state finals to claim her first title. Although second-year head coach Ella Thramann doesn't work closely with Niwot's divers, she was proud of Fay's...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Addison Ritzenhein

    Jack Carlough|Feb 7, 2024

    Only midway through her prep career, Addison Ritzenhein has already cemented herself as one of the greatest runners to ever come through Niwot High School. In the past few months alone, the sophomore standout secured her first Class 4A cross country individual state title and surprised many by finishing first at the Nike Cross Country Nationals on Dec. 2. Her efforts were then honored on Jan. 23 when she became the first Niwot runner to win the prestigious Gatorade National Girls Cross Country P...

  • Niwot takes first at Longs Peak League girls swim and dive championships

    Jack Carlough|Feb 7, 2024

    While Niwot's ultimate focus is on making some noise at state this week, the Cougars took great pride in winning the Longs Peak League (LPL) girls swim and dive championships team title on Friday, Feb. 2. Niwot High School's young team took first in seven of the 12 events, including diving, at the Mountain View Aquatic Center in Loveland. Led by Charlotte Heuer and Ava Altenborg, each of whom won a pair of individual races, the Cougars' 356 total points surpassed runner-up Mountain View High Sch...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Archer Buckbee

    Jack Carlough|Jan 31, 2024

    With a quick draw and release, Archer Buckbee has been hitting his mark often this season for the Niwot High School boys basketball team. Through Jan. 24, the fearless shooter leads the Cougars with 16 made 3-pointers, including four in one game, as a valuable threat off the bench. Buckbee shared that his confidence stems from the support he has around him. "All my teammates trust me that I can make the shots and my coaches have been encouraging me to shoot a lot, so that's been really...

  • NHS girls swim trending upward heading into Longs Peak League championships

    Jack Carlough|Jan 31, 2024

    Admittedly, Niwot High School girls swim head coach Ella Thramann has been pushing her team harder in recent practices. With two major meets on deck, Thramann wants the Cougars to be both prepared and swimming at their best. So far, the tougher practices have yielded some encouraging results. Multiple swimmers have set new personal-record times, including senior co-captain Daisey Bui in two different events, and others simply appear smoother in the pool. "I've seen tons of PRs," Thramann said....

  • Niwot High School's Addison Ritzenhein named Gatorade National Girls Cross Country Player of the Year

    Jack Carlough|Jan 24, 2024

    The vast majority of banners inside Niwot High School's main gym celebrate team championships. A select few, however, are hung in honor of individual achievements. Coming off a stellar sophomore season on the NHS cross country team, Addison Ritzenhein will soon have her name immortalized twice. After receiving the Gatorade Colorado Girls Cross Country Player of the Year award on Monday, the state championship-winning runner earned the prestigious Gatorade National Girls Cross Country Player of...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Daisey Bui

    Jack Carlough|Jan 24, 2024

    Competitive swimming has long been a valued part of Daisey Bui's life, and with her days on the Niwot High School girls swim team limited, the senior chose to dedicate her complete attention to the pool this winter. As someone with an immense range of interests, it likely wasn't easy for Bui to commit everything she has to swimming. In order to make that happen, she stepped away from her involvement with Up-A-Creek Robotics, a club robotics team based in Longmont, but has since taken great...

  • NHS boys wrestling finds wins at Northglenn Norse Varsity Invite

    Jack Carlough|Jan 24, 2024

    Shorthanded and stricken by winter illnesses, the Niwot High School boys wrestling team gutted out a respectable showing at the Northglenn Norse Varsity Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 20. The Cougars finished 20th out of 21 teams but received wins from three different wrestlers: junior Ryder Evans placed fourth in the 144-pound class, 190-pound senior Pavi Soni won his first consolation match, and 285-pound sophomore Jonathan Lopez reached the consolation bracket championship match.

    Jack Carlough|Jan 24, 2024

    With the girls swimming and diving state championships set for early February, Niwot High School’s list of qualifiers is growing.

The Cougar quartet of Devi Burnett, Emmy Hostelley, Thalia Milam, and Charlotte Heuer punched their state ticket in both the 200 and 400-yard freestyle, while Phoebe Donovan, Reese Lavigne, Hannah Hooven, and Hostelley qualified in the 200 medley relay. Hoste...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Sebastian Stenz

    Jack Carlough|Jan 17, 2024

    In an era where far too many players shoot first and think second, Sebastian Stenz's approach to basketball is a welcome throwback. The Niwot High School guard drives the court intending to find an open teammate, a selfless style that's yielding plenty of assists. Through Niwot's first 10 games, Stenz recorded at least one dime in each and currently leads the Cougars with an average of 2.6 assists per contest. Stenz, a junior, said his pass-first mindset began to develop during his season-plus...

  • Niwot High girls swim takes seventh at BoCo Invite

    Jack Carlough|Jan 17, 2024

    As the young Niwot High School girls swim and dive team continues to gain experience, the results are beginning to follow. Head coach Ella Thramann’s Cougars participated in the BoCo Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 13, and finished seventh among 13 local schools of various classes. NHS scored 637 team points at the Broomfield Community Center pool, just ahead of Silver Creek High School’s 588. Fairview High School took first with 1,131 points. With less than one month remaining in their high school careers, Niwot seniors Reese Lavigne and Cha...

  • Student Athlete of the Week Parker Sullivan

    Jack Carlough|Jan 10, 2024

    Parker Sullivan will be learning by trial and error this winter as he navigates his first competitive wrestling season. After moving from Austin, Texas to Colorado before this school year, he joined the Niwot High School boys wrestling team and hasn't exactly been eased into his new sport. The 150-pound junior wrestled at Niwot's annual Gary Daum Classic on Saturday, Jan. 6 and was immediately matched up with Air Academy's Lucas Plunkett, who later took first in the weight class. Although he...
