10 teams

Boulder softball: The Panthers went 2-1 in the Dina Brown Memorial Tournament with wins over Fairview and George Washington, plating 28 runs in the three games. Ellie Jones and Sophia Pereira each have five hits already.

Centaurus boys golf: The Warriors placed second at the opening NCAC event Aug. 4 at Broadlands, with Will Thompson (74), Matthew Vaver (78) and Asa Wentworth (83) leading the charge. Then on Aug. 10, CHS placed third at Highland Hills for their second NCAC tournament; Wentworth’s 79 was tops on the team.

Erie softball: The Tigers went 2-3 at the Broken Arrow High School tournament in Oklahoma, getting a chance to play some of the best teams in the Sooner State. Full details of the tournament results were not available Monday.

Fairview boys golf: The Knights were third at the Cherry Creek Invite as Mathieu Zerwin shot a 71 to tie for fourth place, and then followed up with another third place as senior Nathan Sager had the team low round of 75 at Collindale.

Monarch boys golf: An impressive 66 from Talan Gover helped forge a third place finish for MoHi at the Cherry Creek Invitational on Aug. 9. The Coyotes had four players shoot better than 78. MHS then won the initial Front Range League tournament at Collindale on Aug. 12, with Gover carding a 69.

Niwot boys tennis: The Cougars got started the way they envisioned last week, with a smooth 7-0 win over Frederick. The seven positions dropped a combined nine games.

Peak to Peak boys golf: Om Mathur, Jack Brayman and Kaden Brooks each shot better than 80 for the Pumas in a second-place team effort at the Mile High League tournament Aug. 11 at Flatirons. George Grady’s 73 also was a top-10 finish at the prestigious Kent Denver Invite on Aug. 10.

Silver Creek boys golf: In three NCAC tournaments heading into Monday, the Raptors had finished top four in all of them while being ledt by three different golfers. On Aug. 11 at Pelican Lakes, SCHS placed ahead of host Windsor and in first place thanks in large part to Ben Harding’s 70 (a seven-stroke victory over second place).
