The National Girls and Women in Sports luncheon will be held Friday at 11 a.m. at Chaparral High School.

There will be 135 girls from Douglas County middle schools and high schools who will be honored at the luncheon.

The event is hosted by the Douglas County Educational Foundation and Douglas County School District to recognize young women who exhibit outstanding athletic accomplishments and character in the Douglas County schools.

10-POINT WEEKEND - Heritage’s hockey team won twice last weekend and Connor Crory was a big reason.

Crory, a junior at Arapahoe High School, had a hat trick and finished with five points in a 7-0 win over Bishop Machebeuf. He had four goals and an assist in a 7-3 victory over Rampart.

“He has been huge for us,” Heritage coach Jeremy Sims said.

Crory has 20 goals and 31 points to lead the Peak Conference in scoring.

The Eagles (6-0-0 and 9-1-0 overall) also got good goaltending from Jake Larson who made 52 saves in the two wins.

ROUGH SCHEDULE - Mountain Vista’s hockey teams played four games in four nights, winning twice and losing two contests.

The Golden Eagles (6-2-0 in the Peak Conference and 9-3-0 overall) had an abbreviated roster of 12 players for three of the games because several players were missing because they were playing on club teams in Canada.

“We were tired halfway through the third game and it caught up with us,” said Mountain Vista coach Lev Cohen.

VALOR CHRISTIAN TIES - Cody Letsinger and Ben Joseph scored in Valor Christian 2-2 tie against Lewis Palmer. The Eagles are 3-2-1 in conference play and 6-3-1 overall.

VALOR INVITATIONAL - ThunderRidge’s Annie Ochitwa won the 200 freestyle (1:59.97) and 100 breaststroke (1:08.59) at the Valor Invitational Swim Meet.

Rock Canyon freshman Madeline Lacy captured the 100 butterfly (59.00) and the Jaguars’ Nicole Cassou was the winner of the 500 freestyle (5:19.12).
