AURORA | Some Aurora teams and individual cross country runners have higher goals than others, but the idea is the same for all in Thursday’s regional competition: find a way to qualify for the state meet. There are two ways for city boys and girls runners to earn their way into the competition set for Oct. 28 at the Norris Penrose Events Center in Colorado Springs, either by a top-15 individual finish or as part of one of the top four teams in the final standings.

AURORA | The massive group of seniors on the Hinkley boys soccer team — nearly every player on the roster — has and will experience a lot of firsts in 2017. The Thunderbirds can now call themselves conference champions for the first time since the current group of seniors arrived at the school — and for the first time since 2009 overall — while they will also get to experience postseason play for the first time in the near future.
