The last month has been busy across the state of Colorado for high school athletics, but more importantly here at Bruce Randolph. Both basketball teams have been working extremely hard to try and make waves in the Frontier League, arguably the toughest 3A conference in the state. The league tournament will take place the last two weeks of February.
Both the boys and girls basketball programs have had history-setting seasons as both teams had the opportunity to participate in Prep Pro Series Play at Pepsi Center. The girls team lost a close game to the Alameda Pirates, 25-24, while the boys team pulled away a league victory over the Jefferson Saints. Senior Dontre Williams was named MVP of the game and was honored during halftime of the Denver Nuggets game that night. This season, Dontre has smashed the record for most points scored in a game when he scored 43 points in the game against Middle Park.
Overall both programs have played good basketball the past two months, and many coaches throughout the league are taking notice. Good luck Grizzlies as they finish out their seasons!
Coming up in March, the girls’ soccer and boys’ baseball teams will be starting their seasons as both teams return many players from last year’s group. Coach Short and Coach Hull have high expectations for the teams and feel both teams should qualify for the state tournament. One interesting fact is that after four years of work, the soccer ladies will get to show off the new $1.6 million turf soccer field that is currently being built. Good luck to all the Grizzly teams as they work to make a mark in the state of Colorado.
