Oskari Peltonen, Mead boys soccer: Cleaning up the mess on a corner kick, the junior scored the decisive goal in a 2-1 victory over Sterling and earned the Mavericks the first win in the new boys soccer program’s history. Trailing 1-0 at halftime, teammate Valera Weber tied the game before Peltonen, an exchange student from Finland, won it. It was the first goal of Peltonen’s Mavericks soccer career.
Brooklynn DeLozier, Niwot softball: Off to an incredible .645 start in the leadoff spot for the Cougars, the junior has paced her team to an early 5-2-1 record.
