High school roundup: Rocky tennis gets 6-1 win over Legacy


The Rocky Mountain High School girls tennis team is off to a strong start after defeating Legacy on the road in pretty dominant fashion, winning the dual 6-1 in Broomfield.

Despite a lack of practice days, the Lobos didn’t waste any time when they got them.

“I had them hit probably a million balls,” coach Dave Michaelson said.

It seems to have paid off, as Rocky Mountain (1-0) ran right through the Legacy lineup with the exception of No. 1 singles, where Natalie House lost in the tiebreaker to Legacy’s Michelle Jasica.

“It was way beyond any of my expectations,” Michaelson said.

WINDSOR 7, ERIE 0 — After canceled scrimmages and postponed duals, the Windsor tennis team finally took the court and recorded a win.

The Wizards didn’t have much trouble, and coach Scott Talbot said he was happy to see freshmen Amanda Ward and Angela DeSimone get their first varsity wins.

“It’s good to finally get out and get to play against somebody,” Talbot said. “We definitely have some things to work on, but this gives us a place to start.”


In its first CHSAA soccer game, Liberty Common was given the tough task of facing No. 3 (in Class 2A) Faith Christian on the road.

Faith Christian (1-0) earned its preseason ranking during a 4-0 first half that featured a hat trick from senior striker Mara Magnussun.

After halftime, it was a different story, as Liberty Common (0-1) rallied with a new formation to keep things close with a 2-2 second half featuring goals from both Emily and Liz Yeh.

Liberty Common goalie Melissa Davis stopped 10 Faith Christian shots, and Liberty Common had plenty of opportunities, with seven corner kicks. Coach Wade Torgeson said Liberty Common just wasn’t able to get clean shots on goal as often as the Eagles would have liked.

ARVADA WEST 2, POUDRE 1 — The Impalas started strong with midfielders Kate Marx and Audrey Moreng combining for a goal, as Moreng, a junior, put one in shortly after halftime.

Arvada West (2-0) answered the bell twice with goals in the 55th minute and the 62nd minute. Poudre falls to 0-2 and begins Class 5A Front Range League play Thursday against Mountain Range.
