  • NHS girls tennis moving in the right direction

    Jonathan Epstein|Mar 20, 2024

    After starting the season with two losses, Niwot High School’s girls tennis team has started to find its way during the last two matches. While the Cougars lost a close match to Holy Family High School on March 11 by a score of 4-3, Niwot won all three of the singles matches. Unfortunately, the Cougars also lost all four of the doubles matches. Their #1 doubles played a particularly tight three-setter, losing the third set tiebreaker by a score of 10-6. Playing on back-to-back days, the Cougars then earned their first win of the season in d...

  • 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...

  • Niwot High School boys volleyball jumps to 2-1 on the year

    Isaac Stephens|Mar 20, 2024

    The Niwot High School boys volleyball squad has gotten off to a strong start as the Cougars head into spring break with a 2-1 record. Niwot played one game last week against Cherry Creek High School, winning the series 3-1. Niwot was originally scheduled to play Arvada West High School on Thursday, but the match was postponed due to snow. Niwot took a bit to get going against Cherry Creek, dropping the first series to the Bruins 25-21. Niwot bounced back, taking the next set 25-18, before going on a run, grabbing the third and fourth sets,...

  • 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

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...

  • Tough start for NHS girls tennis

    Jonathan Epstein|Mar 13, 2024

    The Niwot High School girls varsity tennis team started the season with a couple losses last week to Fairview High School (4-3) and Valor Christian High School (6-1). While that may be a tough way to begin the year, the matches were closer than last year when the Cougars were defeated 7-0 by both teams. "We're better than last year," said Coach Aimee Hites, "We have more depth." Last year, Valor Christian lost to Fairview in the Class 5A state team semi-finals, and Fairview lost in the finals...

  • NHS girls soccer starts on the right foot

    Jonathan Epstein|Mar 13, 2024

    According to Coach Stephen Dimit, “It’s hard to get a win to open the season because there’s not a lot of prep time.” But the NHS girls soccer team was able to do just that last Thursday, March 7, in a snowy, messy game against Centaurus High School, coming away with a 2-1 victory. Paige Russell, a senior, and Hannah Wurth, a freshman, each scored for the Cougars. Margaux Boyer, another senior, had an assist. The Cougars have a 20-player roster and half of them are freshman and sophmores. Dimit said, “That’s a young team.” He’s leaning on Russ...

  • 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...

  • Optimistic NHS' girls tennis season

    Jonathan Epstein|Mar 6, 2024

    The Niwot High School girls varsity tennis team finished last season with a hard fought 7-6 record. Despite strong individual showings, including Sahasra Kolli winning the Class 4A state championship at #2 singles, the team was challenged by a lack of depth according to Coach Aimee Hites. Hites expects that depth to improve as the team begins its spring season with a home match against Fairview High School at 3:30 p.m. on March 5. Kolli returns for her sophomore season and will play at #1 singles. While playing #1 entails a higher level of...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Savvy Rafkin|Feb 7, 2024

    The Niwot Cougars wrestling team wrapped up the final dual meet of the season on Feb. 1 against Fort Morgan High School, suffering a 69-9 defeat.

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

  • 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.

  • 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....

  • Evans and Burrage lead NHS wrestling

    Savvy Rafkin|Jan 31, 2024

    The 2023-2024 season for the Niwot Cougars wrestling team has faced many challenges. With a young roster, inexperience has proven to be hard to overcome. Nonetheless, the team has remained positive for the entire season. In the dual against Riverdale Ridge High School on Jan. 25, the Cougars fell 54–24. Riverdale Ridge accumulated seven pins, automatically giving the Ravens a 42-point advantage. However, the Niwot roster still found success at the 144, 150, 165, 175, and 190 weight classes. Capt...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

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...

  • Let's hear it for referees

    Jonathan Epstein|Jan 10, 2024

    Referees play a critical role in youth sports from recreational leagues to club programs and through high school. Children experience the joy of winning and the lessons of loss, while parents get to be right there with them all because referees are willing to spend their days, evenings and weekends making sure the rules are followed, the score gets kept and the games get played. Unfortunately, youth referees' jobs are becoming increasingly difficult due to the behavior of parents, coaches and pl...

  • Annual Gary Daum Classic at NHS in the books

    Jack Carlough|Jan 10, 2024

    Organized chaos would be the best way to describe this year's Gary Daum Classic at Niwot High School. With 21 total teams and five mats running at all times, including one in the auxiliary gym, NHS wrestling head coach Bobby Matthews said the annual boys wrestling tournament was the "biggest it's ever been." All in all, though, the crowded day went according to plan. Champions were crowned in 14 different weight classes. Pueblo County High School secured the team title on Saturday, Jan. 6....

  • Student Athlete of the Week Reese Lavigne

    Jack Carlough|Jan 3, 2024

    Knowing that she likely won't swim competitively in college, Reese Lavigne is simply trying to enjoy her senior season. The fourth-year Niwot High School swimmer has accomplished plenty in her prep career and wants to cherish these final days with her teammates. "It's been great," Lavigne said. "We do have a close-knit team, and I'll be hanging out with my swim friends outside of swimming a lot. A lot of the seniors that I'm friends with, I've swam with them all of high school, so I know them...
