‘Warrior Rumble’ honors Arapahoe High School victim

DOUGLAS COUNTY – This weekend, students from 21 schools, mainly from the southern metro area, will be coming together for the Warrior Rumble, a volleyball tournament organized by Douglas County students and staff to honor the life of Arapahoe High School shooting victim Claire Davis.

The event will be at Chaparral High School in Parker on January 18 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Claire Davis Fund.

The tournament started with a simple idea. Chaparral High School senior and volleyball player Hayley Ferguson wanted to pull together a fundraiser to help pay for Davis’ medial bills. Support quickly grew and Ferguson and Chaparral High School’s student government were able to secure a location and the support of dozens of high school teams, as well as items for a silent auction.

During the event, participants can bid on various items, including ‘meet & greet’ passes to Rascal Flatts concert; Robin Thicke concert tickets; signed items from the Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche and former Denver Broncos players; as well senior photo shoots and prom hair styling from local businesses.

In addition to the tournament, the organizers say they hope to begin a student alliance between Colorado schools. They will be inviting the participating schools to meet a couple times a year to pledge against violence and to promote anti-bullying campaigns.

21 schools are participating, including 10 from Douglas County:

  • Arapahoe High School
  • Castle View High School
  • Chaparral High School
  • Chatfield High School
  • Cherokee Trail High School
  • Cherry Creek High School
  • Douglas County High School
  • Eaglecrest High School
  • Grandview High School
  • Highlands Ranch High School
  • Horizon High School
  • Legend High School
  • Lutheran High School
  • Mountain Range High School
  • Mountain Vista High School
  • Ponderosa High School
  • Regis Jesuit High School
  • Rock Canyon High School
  • Stem School & Academy
  • Thunder Ridge High School
  • Valor Christian High School

All high school students, parents and community members are invited to participate. Cost for volleyball teams is $50. Admission is $5.

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
