AURORA | The Eaglecrest softball team went into Class 5A regionals seeded first and will go into the 5A state tournament seeded first, with the end goal of a first-place finish to the 2017 season. The Raptors lived up to their lofty seeding at Saturday’s Region 1 tournament at the Aurora Sports Park, beating Denver East and Mountain Vista by a combined total of 25-1 in two 10-run rule victories.

AURORA | Despite a slow start, the Eaglecrest football team finally got into gear Friday night at Aurora Public Schools Stadium. Coach Mike Schmitt’s undefeated Raptors found themselves trailing Rangeview 7-0 after one quarter, but responded with 48 straight points in the second and third periods on their way to a 48-7 victory in a matchup of the two Aurora programs in the Mount Wilson League.

With two sets of grandparents, aunts, uncles and his parents there to watch, pressure mounted on Eaglecrest’s Davis Bryant Tuesday in the final round of the Class 5A boys state golf tournament. With all eyes on him and the final group at CommonGround Golf Course, Bryant — as cool a customer as you’ll find on a golf course — never blinked on the final stretch of holes that earned him a long sought-after state title.
