DCSD Sports Great Soccer and Volleyball Teams

Mountain Vista boys soccer battled for the 5A state championship last Saturday at Dicks Sporting Goods Park.  They were tied with opponent, Broomfield, through regulation, before being defeated during overtime by a score of 2 to 1.  After overcoming adversity early in the season, MVHS proved themselves to be fierce competitors.  Congratulations to Mountain Vista for an excellent season.

Two superior volleyball teams competed at the Denver Coliseum.  Rock Canyon went all the way to the 5A semi-finals before being defeated by Fairview, three games to one.  Ponderosa fought their way to the 4A semi-finals before Lewis Palmer beat them three games to zero.  We enjoyed watching these two great teams as they worked their way to the semis.  Both teams were great competitors!
