Arapahoe

  • The football team will seek to even the series with Mountain Vista at three games apiece on Sept. 22 when the teams play at Littleton Public Schools Stadium. Arapahoe's two previous wins against Vista have come by a total of seven points.
  • One more victory for coach Jeannie Krueger's softball team will give the Warriors the most wins in the past nine seasons. Arapahoe entered the week with an 8-4 record. Last season's 8-11 record marked the most victories since 2009.
  • An all-team potluck soccer tailgate party will be held Sept. 26 after the Arapahoe varsity and junior varsity teams play Mullen at the Warriors' soccer fields.

Cherry Creek

  • The football team is wearing a No. 47 decal on their football helmets to support 12-year-old Ocean Jenkins, a youth football player on the seventh-grade Creek Arapahoe Youth League team. Ocean was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma and recently spent 29 days in the intensive care unit at Children's Hospital. He is now on the recovery floor, where he is being treated for cancer and other ailments. All Creek AYL teams are also wearing the 47 sticker.
  • Senior infielder Aubrea Leikam is among the Centennial League leaders in five different categories after 12 games, with a .515 batting average, 18 runs scored, 18 runs batted in, five stolen bases and a .993 slugging percentage.
  • The football team, off to a 2-1 start, faces teams in the next two games that it doesn't own the edge over in the overall series. The Bruins meet Grandview Sept. 22 and trail the series 6-10. Valor Christian has won four of the six games played between the schools and Creek plays the Eagles Sept. 29.

Englewood

  • The football team has started 2-1 and senior Taylor Blackburn is averaging 126 yards a game rushing.

Heritage

  • The football team has scored only one touchdown in three losses this season but has a chance for a little payback when the Eagles take on Denver South on Sept. 21. The Rebels beat the Eagles, 31-23, last season.
  • Junior linebacker Matthew Brouillette has been busy in the initial three games of the football season with an average of 16.5 tackles per game.
  • Jack Alexander, the boys tennis team's No. 1 singles player, has won two of his first three matches this season.
