  • Segovia, Flickinger take wild win in stride

    Fort Lupton’s Andy Segovia was one happy young man after his team out slugged Aurora Central 20-12 in non-conference baseball action March 23.

    The day before, Segovia threw 100 or so pitches in a 12-0 loss at Standley Lake. He didn’t get a hit in either of his trips to the plate. 

    His coach, Stephen Flickinger, was thinking of using Segovia as a courtesy runner against the Trojans. Instead, Segovia drove in six runs on the strength of five hits. He also scored four times.

  • Tarnowski takes ‘great experience’ a step farther at all-star game

    GREELEY – If Frederick High School basketball player Mylie Tarnowski could have written a script to end her prep career, it might well have included a strong performance in an all-star game and a most valuable player award.

    That’s exactly what happened March 15 at University High School. Tarnowski, who scored seven points, added a steal and a blocked shot in just the second half of the all-Weld County all-star girls game, took home the MVP honors.

  • Two Bluedevils tabbed for a basketball finale

    Neither of their squads won the all-star contests. Case didn’t score. He had an assist and a rebound.

  • Running in the wind
  • Four make all-Weld County basketball teams

    Fort Lupton sent Kaylee Maestas and Gaven Case. Frederick's representatives were Aspen Dufour and Mylie Tarnowski.

    Tarnowski was the most valuable player in the girls game. Her team won 60-40. In the second half, Tarnowski scored seven points, blocked a shot and recorded a steal. Dufour pulled down a rebound.

    Maestas did not score. Case had an assist and a rebound in his game.

  • Time to rebuild for FLHS girls soccer campaign

    When 13 players graduate from a team, there’s only one thing to do.


    That’s precisely what Fort Lupton High School girls soccer coach Archie Suniga has on his mind for the 2018 spring season.

    The Bluedevils dropped their first two games of the season to Frederick and to Roosevelt by identical scores of 10-0. 

  • Baseball: Mustangs upend Frederick

    Fort Morgan scored seven unanswered runs in the middle innings at Frederick March 10 and won the non-conference game 11-6.

    JP Hames had two hits and drove in two runs for Fort Morgan. Jimmy Keller got the win in relief for the Mustangs. He allowed just three hits in 5 1/3 innings.

  • Baseball: Valley downs Fort Lupton

    Valley scored six times in the sixth inning and beat Fort Lupton 8-1 in the Bluedevils' home opener March 10.

    Dusty Howard (two hits) and Simon Johnson (one) had FLHS' only hits. Aaron Stough got credit for the RBI. Andy Segovia struck out six in 5 1/3 innings of work on the mound.

    The Vikings' Jose Mercado threw a complete game. He struck out seven and helped his own cause with two base hits. Kyle Bol had a base hit and drove in two runs. 

  • Survey says ...

    No one disputes the tough academic standards for Fort Lupton High School students to participate in extracurricular activities.

                But to borrow a line about bedding quality from “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” the question is whether those standards are too hard, too soft or whether they are just right.
