The Coal Ridge Titans managed to pile up some impressive stats in Friday night’s 35-24 loss at Cedaredge, but were hindered by turnovers.Josh Alsop carried the ball 14 times, gaining 109 yards and scoring one touchdown, while Bradey Gasaway rushed for 97 yards on eight carries and scored two touchdowns. The Titans had trouble keeping possession however, as they fumbled the ball three times.Quarterback Crockett Williams, filling in for regular Titan QB Keenan Grumley, completed four passes for 121 yards. Cedaredge picked off three of Williams’ passes, though, making it hard for Coal Ridge to gain any momentum.Defensively, Adam Miller was on a rampage for Coal Ridge, making 12 tackles and recovering a fumble.
Glenwood Springs is making a name for itself in state cross country circles, and the Demons struck their latest blow at Friday’s Liberty Bell Meet in Littleton.Katrina Selsor paced the Glenwood girls to a second-place team finish by running a fifth-place time of 19 minutes, 19 seconds. Not far behind were teammates Melissa Buchanan (12th, 20:10) and Sharaya Selsor (14th, 20:17) at the Heritage High School-hosted meet. Michelle Stripp timed in 26th (20:57), and Angie Shepard (21:08) was 29th.”We’ve been working the kids really hard lately and had warned them not to expect to set a lot of personal bests or to get on the podium, like they did last year for the first time,” Demons coach Michael Schneiter said. “Despite hard workouts on Tuesday and Wednesday, both teams excelled, and almost everyone set a PR for the course or as an overall PR. I was quite shocked because we really talked about this race being a workout.”While Glenwood’s girls finished second only to Evergreen, the boys didn’t fare quite as well, placing 16th out of 20 scoring teams.Ryan Buchanan led the way with a time of 17:15, good for 40th place.”The boys continued to show huge improvements,” Schneiter said, “with everyone showing improvements on PRs of 40 seconds to a few minutes. Additionally, while they were almost 60 points beyond regional competitor Moffat County at Harrison, this time they were just 16 points behind.”
