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

    Jack Carlough|Mar 6, 2024

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....

  • Scott L. Malan Profile

    Dec 27, 2023

    How much fun is this? After nearly 50 years of climbing the corporate ladder, Biff Warren asked me to come back to my roots – writing about high school sports for the Courier. Seriously? Talk about coming around full circle! While still in college at the University of Utah, I found myself working for the Salt Lake (City) Tribune -- first as a copy boy (yell "BOY!!!" and I still come running) and, after about 18 months, as a full-fledged sportswriter at the ripe old age of 20.

  • Where Are They Now? Jamie McGregor

    Keith Waters|Aug 9, 2023

    Jamie McGregor kept busy playing music at Niwot High School, where he graduated in 1984. "I played in the marching band, the concert band, the jazz band, and the orchestra," he said. Then he added with a laugh, "I was the ultimate band geek, with the key to the band room." He began playing at age three, when a neighbor gave him a toy drum set (allegedly to annoy his parents), and he began studying the drums in earnest in fifth grade. At Niwot High he studied percussion with band director Mike...

    Scott L. Malan|Jun 21, 2023

    They were all around . . . Cardinals and Blue Jays; Astros and A's; Padres and Twins; Cubs and Mets; and plenty of Rockies. That last one probably gave it away. We're not talking about this year's Major League Baseball All-Star Game. This was the 2023 Bob Bote Baseball Camp sponsored by Niwot Youth Sports.

    Leonard Sitongia|May 3, 2023

    Did you know that Niwot had a live nude dancing venue in the 1980s? The Ace of Hearts was located at 112 2nd Avenue, now occupied by Little Bird. The show was apparently short-lived. Kathy Koehler said she contacted the Boulder County Sheriff's Office to see if anyone recalled the business. "One former deputy remembers this location," Koehler said. "She remembers that the business was open for about three weeks. The closure was related to liquor license issues rather than an eviction closure."...

    Staff Report|Mar 15, 2023

    Niwot High School coach Ken Rosales was pleased with his baseball team's first outing of the season, a 13-1 mercy-rule win over Timnath High School. "We should have won big as Timnath is a team of freshmen and sophomores," Roxales said of the new school to the north. But the Cougars dominated, as they should. "Everybody hit the ball," Rosales said. "We did leave a lot of guys on base. Our pitchers only gave up two hits and two walks." Junior Brock Rothstein started on the mound, while sophomore...

    Mar 1, 2023

    Dear Left Hand Valley Courier, I am writing in comment on Wandering Jellyfish's Drag Queen Story time, as published in the article "Drag Queen Story Time Comes to Niwot" by Biff Warren. Niwot has long been politically dormant. Due to its lack of mayor and place within the greater Boulder County area, this small country town of just over 4,000 people has managed to keep itself civil and strong in face of growing political division, and besides the odd Trump flag or Biden bumper sticker, this is how it was. Niwot is also the site of Niwot High...
