With only one game last week all the focus was getting a win vs Venture Prep. As our last conference game it was our last chance to get match fit. The boys started off strong getting a goal in the first 5 minutes. All emphasis were to start shooting outside the box and get crosses in to get goals. Sophomores Cesar and Nate did great accomplishing those tasks and allowing the rest of the boys to follow. The game finished 10-0 with a huge win leading into the rest of the season.
This past week in golf was a busy one. We had the JV Cup at Overland where Ethan Wintersmith shot a 46 to take 4th place! Varsity traveled to Fruita Monday to play in the regional golf tournament. Our guys played some of their best golf of the season coming in 8th place and 1st out of the 4 other DPS schools that were there. George Fenton shot an 82, Will Draper shot an 85 and Zach Snow shot an 86. Great way to finish the season!

The 2016 George Washington team is off and running this season, the team has just completed its 3rd meet of the season and the results have been really good. The Boys team has been a real surprise led by some top 10 individual performances by Senior Tristan Camp-Lagueux and Guillermo Acero and the team has tested its new place in the 4A division with several strong team finishes also in the top 10 at each meet. On the Girls side the team has been lead by Senior Monroe Roush and Gabrielle Camp-Lagueux. Through the remainder of the season the team will challenge league rivals in the DPS leading into the league championship on October 10th at City Park. With the new classification of 4A based on current performance, we do have our sites on possible individual/team state meet qualification.
The first gymnastics meet went well. Briana Clementz did her round off back handspring for the first time at a meet. Katharine Chadd stuck her beam routine, and overall the girls were very supportive of each other and the other teams.
The varsity had an excellent week against two fine opponents, defeating Lincoln 15-7 while losing a nail biter to Kennedy 2-1. In the first contest, junior pitcher Tracy Harris had 16 strikeouts and the team pounded out 16 hits, led by Tracy, junior Gabby Romero and sophomore Lucca Raabe. In the second game, a tremendous pitching duel, GW had the tying run on third base in the top of the 7th inning but fell just short. The team’s record now stands at 8-4-1.
The JV also split its two games last week, finishing on a high note with a 12-5 victory over North. Junior pitcher Katrina Gilman through a fine game, aided by two outstanding defensive plays by sophomore second baseman Emma Krantz and another excellent play by freshman shortstop Kate Graham. The JV record is now 6-3.
