Top 10 sports stories, No. 10A: Rifle High brings back Walters and Schmitz

Rifle High School's basketball programs returned to their roots in the spring, bringing back a pair of coaches who led the Bears in the past.

Roger Walters resigned from his post as women's basketball head coach at Colorado Mesa University and returned to his former post as the head boys hoops coach at Rifle. Right around the same time, Rick Schmitz vacated his post as the head girls basketball coach at Coal Ridge to return to Rifle and coach the girls there.

Walters previously coached Rifle's boys from 1995 to 2002, while Schmitz coached the girls from 1993 to 2005.
