All extracurricular activities on Tuesday for schools in the Douglas County school district were postponed due to a school shooting incident at the STEM School in Highlands Ranch.
The shooting led to many schools in the district going in lockout mode with the situation unfolding. The Douglas County School District announced that all after-school events for the day would be postponed as well, including sporting events.
In Class 5A, state soccer games for Fairview and Legacy have been postponed as a result. Fairview, the No. 9 seed, was scheduled to play No. 24 seed Mountain Vista in Boulder. Legacy, the No. 17 seed, was scheduled to travel to play No. 16 seed Rock Canyon.
Makeup dates for the games have not been formally announced, but the schools and the Colorado High School Activities Association says the hope is to play as soon as possible.
Most other 5A soccer playoffs did get going — including games for No. 11 seed Boulder and No. 20 Monarch from the BVSD. The Panthers and Coyotes, however, both saw their seasons come to an end at the hands of higher-seeded opponents, with Boulder falling to Columbine by a 2-0 score and Windsor knocking off Monarch 4-2.
