  • Brighton baseball team claims...

    A 35-13 record is nothing to sneeze at.

    But it’s that 35th win that the members of the Brighton 15U baseball team will remember for a long time.

    The last win of the squad’s summer season meant the state championship for the age group in the Colorado Baseball League. The team also won a league title this summer.

    Most of the team is incoming sophomores. Thirteen of the 15 players will be in 10th grade.

  • Anderson follows sister’s lead...

    Prairie View High School is about to see another athletic Anderson in its midst.

    Meet Gregory Anderson. If his last name sounds familiar, his sister is Aleksandra Anderson, who continued her track career at the University of North Dakota.

  • Vaden, ex-PVHS standout, waits...

    Prairie View alum Jordon Vaden is within sniffing distance of a shot with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars.

    He signed a free-agent deal with the team and took part in the squad’s mini-camp earlier this spring.

    “My first thought was, ‘It’s time to get to work,’” he said. “It was a tough wait draft weekend, and that call let me know it’s time to lock in and go get what I’ve been working on for so long.”

  • Correction

    In the June 28 and July 5 issues of the Brighton Standard Blade, we misidentified Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction. 

    The stories were about an athlete who is going to school there for cross country and track and for a former local athlete who talked about her first year of college athletics.
