Double-time Divine: Senior cross country standout

By Katie Essig and Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder AURORA – First, Berthoud was a win away from the 4A state softball tournament on Saturday at Aurora Sports Park.

Spartans’ upset bid falls one point short

Mountain View 7, Berthoud 6 By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder Colton Moore lined up for a 30-yard field goal with 49 seconds remaining and his team trailing No. 1-ranked Mountain View by a point.

The accuracy, however, was just a bit off – wide right by inches. That’s how close the ... Full Story

Slaughterhouse Derby Girls bring their game faces

By Dani White Berthoud Recorder However entertaining women with crazy leg wear, sassy skirts, quad-skates and pent up aggression may be, the flashy and audacious sport of roller derby is not for the cautious. Derby requires sterling athleticism. There are not many venues where women can knock each other around in the name of sport. Derby girl Lauren Bishop justifies the intense extremes, “You do it because even when you're so sore, bruised and broken that you feel like you're about to die, ... Full Story

BHS girls win Karspeck Invite; boys take 2nd

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder The fact that Hannah Kirk and Stefani Messick ran so well wasn’t all that surprising. But the fact that the Berthoud runners were neck and neck with each other throughout most of the David Karspeck Invitational at Berthoud High School on Oct. 7 proved to be instrumental in the Lady Spartans’ victory in the four-team varsity race. “I knew they’d run strong,” said Berthoud Head Coach Curt Ranweiler, who watched Kirk finish third in 19 minutes, 43 ...
