Inside the huddle

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder On Sunday afternoon it starts with Dan McGinn and his assistant coaches meeting — the offensive coaches at his house and the defensive ones at coordinator Troy Diffendaffer’s — dissecting film of their next opponent and of their own games. As the week progresses, the Berthoud Spartans learn their opponent’s tendencies, their plays and run their own. Thursday night is typically team dinner night and Friday is game day. This week, however, was ... Full Story

Lack of size dooms Spartans in state playoff game

Faith Christian 5, Berthoud 0 By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder ARVADA — If the Berthoud Spartans learned anything from Saturday’s boys soccer game with Faith Christian it is that they know what to expect the next time around in the 3A state tournament. They also know they must play a more physical game. The host Eagles used their size to score a 5-0 victory in a game that was postponed three days due to last week’s snowstorm. Cameron McCaslin scored two goals — one off a header and ... Full Story

Ruebesam, defense lead Spartans to playoffs

Berthoud 21, Silver Creek 7 By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder   LONGMONT — This is a familiar scene — the Berthoud Spartans are going back to the playoffs.

Double-time Divine: Senior cross country standout

By Katie Essig Berthoud Recorder Having a Berthoud High School student-athlete working twice as hard as most fall season athletes because he was competing in two sports in the same season is somewhat rare. But now Nick Divine, a BHS senior, is doing just that. Divine is a dual-sport athlete, excelling in both cross country and boys soccer. He’s been running cross country for four years, but this being his last year as a high school student, Divine decided to broaden his horizons and ... Full Story

Late heroics foil BHS softball at regionals

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. When that didn’t work out, the Lady Spartans played again and were one out away from this weekend’s 16-team state field, also at Aurora Sports Park. That didn’t work out, either, and Berthoud’s season, unceremoniously, came to an end. (more…)

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 junior kicker, who had already missed an extra point earlier in the game, lined up on the right hash mark for his first field-goal attempt of the season. The ball had the distance and the height. The accuracy, however, was just a bit off – wide right by inches. That’s how close the ... Full Story
