Prep Sports Roundup: Rifle boys win Montrose Invitational

Rifle’s boys topped the field at Saturday’s Montrose Invitational track and field meet, topping second-place Delta by 13 points.

A number of event wins buoyed the Bears.

Ryan Moeller won the 100-meter run, zipping to the finish in 11.28 seconds. Brandon Kittle was right behind him, crossing in 11.36. Moeller also won the 400 (51.01).

Taylor Webb won the 110 hurdles (15.66), and Kellin Leigh placed second in the 200 (23.65).

Rifle won three of four relays, besting the field in the 4×100 (44.58), the 4×200 (1:33.09) and the 4×400 (3:38.13). The Bears added a second-place finish in the 4×800 (8:31.8).

Rifle’s girls placed fifth in the team hunt.

Joey Kuheim won both the discus (125 feet, 2 inches) and the shot put (38-11).

Carsyn Copeland cleared 5-3 to win the high jump.

Cedaredge’s baseball squad rolled to a sweep of host Grand Valley on Saturday.

The Bruins won by counts of 16-1 and 17-3.

The losses dropped the Cardinals to 3-14 overall.

Aspen’s girls soccer team squandered a one-goal lead in the waning moments of regulation in Saturday’s friendly with Coal Ridge and ultimately had to settle for a 2-2 draw – its second in three days.

The Skiers, who battled rival Basalt to a 1-1 tie Thursday, now is 9-1-3 overall and 7-0-1 in 3A Region 3 play.

Aspen, first in the league standings heading into the final week of the regular season, trailed 1-0 after 40 minutes Saturday. They squared the match about 15 minutes into the second on a 25-yard free kick from Tati Armstrong, then pulled ahead in the 70th minute when goalkeeper Sally McGuren took and converted a penalty kick.

The Titans scored in stoppage time to force overtime.

“It was a good, entertaining game,” Gillies said. “Everybody was happy. The crowd was happy, the teams were happy.”

Coal Ridge is now 9-1-3 overall and 5-0-3 in league play.
