What Happened?

• The season ended for Rifle High School’s baseball team on May 10, when the Bears lost to Ponderosa, 2-1, in eight innings in the first round of the Class 4A state playoffs in Durango. Starting pitcher Bailey Hoffmeister went the distance on the mound and scored the Bears’ only run of the game, but a walk-off, bases-loaded single from Ponderosa’s Parker Eischen lifted the Mustangs to the win. With the loss, the Bears’ season ended with a 12-8 overall record, which included a third-place finish in the 4A Western Slope League.

What’s Coming?

• Both the Rifle and Grand Valley track and field teams will take part in the Class 4A and 3A State Championships today through Saturday at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood.

Among the top competitors for the Bears will be senior Brittany Neuroth, who is a high qualifier in the Class 4A shot put and discus, and senior Brayden Smith, who also qualified in the shot put and discus events. Another Rifle senior, Carsyn Copeland, will compete in state in the long jump.

For Grand Valley, junior triple jumper Ben Coleman will make his second trip to state, and his long jump of 40 feet, 11 1/4 inches is the seventh-best in the 18-athlete field. Another Grand Valley athlete with a chance at a podium finish is freshman Kylyn Rigsby, whose top height of 5-2 in the high jump has her, like Coleman, ranked seventh in her event.

Coal Ridge’s boys and girls track and teams are each strong contenders for the Class 3A team championships. The Coal Ridge boys bring in strong individual contenders like Andy Bowles (high jump, 110 hurdles, 300 hurdles), Trevor Kelly (110 hurdles, 300 hurdles, long jump, triple jump), and Chris Contreras (100, 200 and 400 meters). The Titans also have the top-ranked 4x800-meter relay team in Class 3A headed into the meet.
