• Rifle High School’s track and field team had respectable finishes at the 34th annual Demon Invitational at Stubler Memorial Field in Glenwood Springs on Saturday, April 12, with the boys finishing fourth in the team standings and the girls taking third. Among the top boys finishers were Rifle’s 4x800-meter relay of Luis Carreon, John Coombs, Cody Rice and Brenden Wagler, which finished first in 8 minutes, 33.95 seconds. Also doing well for the Rifle boys was Wagler, who took first in the 1,600 meters in 4:48.53, and second in the 3,200 in 10:37.59. For the girls, Rifle’s best relay came in the 800 sprint medley with Lauren Arnold, Tasia Christensen, Carley Ric and Tara Ruggles, who won the event in 2:02.55. Rifle’s top individual girl was senior Brittany Neuroth, who won the shot put and discus events.
• Grand Valley’s track and field team also earned respectable finishes at the Demon Invitational. The Cardinal boys swept the jumping events, with junior Ben Coleman winning the triple jump with a mark of 40 feet, 11 1/4 inches, and Zach Steinke winning the long jump with a leap of 19-7. Ricardo Malta took third in the 100 meters in 11.73 seconds, and the Cardinals’ 4x200 relay of Steinke, Ivan Arizaga, Sanos Cornejo and Jared Parmenter was third in 1:35.76.
• Rifle High School’s baseball team came into the week with a 9-4 overall record and a 6-3 mark in the 4A Western Slope League, good for fourth place in the league standings behind Delta (11-1, 7-1), Palisade (8-4, 6-1) and Eagle Valley (7-4-1, 5-2). The top three finishers in the league standings qualify for the 4A state playoffs, and Rifle has a chance to gain ground in the league standings when they host a doubleheader against Palisade on Friday at Deerfield Park.
