The Grandview girls soccer team is fond of three-letter acronyms — “GAS” (Get A Star) and “DOT.” (Defend Our Title) — and all the Wolves seem to do lately is “WIN.” Grandview finished off its second straight Class 5A state championship — the first for a 5A girls team since 1991 and 1992 — with a 2-1 win over Mountain Vista, pushing its jaw-dropping unbeaten streak to 35-0-1 dating back to March of 2015.

A confident Hinkley boys track team rose to the occasion when it mattered most and caused a stir at the Class 5A state track meet. Thunderbirds’ athletes won two of the three state championships for Aurora boys athletes at Jefferson County Stadium and headline the 2016 Aurora Sentinel All-City Boys Track Team, which features 21 athletes from six different schools who were the tops among city performers in their respective events in the season-ending state meet.
