  • Soccer: Fort Lupton wins in a breeze

    Fort Lupton's soccer team stayed unbeaten through seven games Sept. 20 with a 10-0 home-field win against Pueblo Central.

    The Bluedevils are 4-0-3 this season and sit in 17th place in the class 3A ROI standings as of Sept. 21.

    We'll have more on the game in the Sept. 26 issue of the Fort Lupton Press.

  • Fells' journey is complete

    Two months ago, Fort Lupton senior Hayden Fells wasn't sure if he'd be playing football for the Bluedevils this season.

    He put a rather emphatic exclamation point on his return by scoring a defensive touchdown in Fort Lupton's 35-0 homecoming win over Riverdale Ridge High School Sept. 14.

    Fells tore his ACL and partially tore his meniscus playing basketball last winter.

    "My dad and sister were really supportive through it," Fells said. "They told me to keep my head up. My doctor kept me going too."

    She hit a two-run home run, one of two the Bluedevils hit in an 11-1 rout of Alameda High School Sept. 7. Gianna Tijerina hit the other.

  • Football: University blanks Bluedevils

    The new football season didn't start out the way Fort Lupton's first-year coach Dustin Duff wanted.

    But he had reason to be happy, even though University blanked the Bluedevils 21-0 in Fort Lupton Aug. 31.
