Mountain Vista edges out Rock Canyon to claim 5A girls soccer championship

COMMERCE CITY –Douglas County rivals, Rock Canyon and Mountain Vista, faced off in the 5A Girls Soccer title game and in the end it all came down to one shot in overtime.
During the May 22 game at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Mountain Vista was able to outlast Rock Canyon. After a 40-minute lightening delay and a scoreless regulation period, Vista sophomore Megan Massey was able to get a shot past Rock Canyon's goaltender, Julia Henning, in the 85th minute.
"I had to double check to make sure it went in. "I wasn't sure, but everything was just so amazing tonight,” Massey told the Denver Post. She finished the season with a team-high of 16 goals. 
Meanwhile, the team’s defense, led by Gabbi Miranda, who was recently named a Gatorade Player of the Year, was able to hold Rock Canyon to only five shots on goal.
Mountain Vista lived up to its reputation as one of the best girls soccer teams the state has ever seen. The team finished its season with a nearly flawless season (19-1) and, of course, the state championship. This is the fifth state title for MVHS coach Theresa Echtermeyer

District News

DCSD is requesting parent input on the health and wellness of our students. Last year, DCSD received a large planning grant from Colorado Health Foundation in an effort to assess how the district supports students through the lens of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model (WSCC). The mission of this grant is to review the current state of DCSD's student health and wellness program, and then formulate a three to five-year plan based on stakeholders’ needs, the latest research, and best practices. As part of this process, we would like your input.

How are we doing?

We want to hear from you! How often do you prefer to receive email newsletters from DCSD? How can we improve the news and information you receive? This brief survey should only take a minute or two of your time. Thank you for giving us your input!

Tell us what you think, here!

It may look like a plain, white shipping container was just parked on the backyard grounds of Mountain Vista High School. The contents of the container are anything but plain, though. Walking inside the container, different colors of ambient lighting glow, futuristic-looking equipment and tall towers are suspended from the ceiling, and the humidity level is set to 70 percent. The container has been recycled into a new kind of learning opportunity for students.
