Congratulations to coach Krista Pearman and her girls' soccer squad on their 3-1 victory over Colorado Academy in Tuesday night's 3A championship game.
After falling in the state semi-finals for three straight years, the Sun Devils and their core of senior leaders dominated the season from start to finish. They outscored opponents by a 69-9 margin, dropping only one game to a 5A school on their way to a 16-1-1 record. During the four-game playoffs, the Sun Devils conceded only one goal against the state's top 3A teams.
"I am so proud of our team and am appreciative of our eight seniors who dedicated themselves to making their team a cohesive and solid unit," said Coach Pearman. "This State Championship is a wonderful symbol of what can be achieved if you work together, support each other and have a mentality that nobody is going to beat you if you give it your all."
With a total of five 3A titles (the last coming in 2007), Kent Denver is now tied for the most state titles in Colorado girls' soccer.
With every note they play, students in Kent Denver School’s award-winning R&B group, The Quincy Ave. Rhythm Band, envelop listeners in a rich cocoon of emotion and song. DownBeat magazine recently named the ensemble the Best High School Band in the Country in the pop/rock/blues category—the seventh time in a decade the school has received this award.
Upper Schoolers audition annually for a spot in The Band, and those selected may take the program for credit during each of their high school years. In addition to on-campus appearances, the group has performed locally, nationally, and internationally, including gigs at the Montreaux Jazz Festival in Switzerland and soul festivals in Porretta, Italy.
“These musicians perform at a professional level, and they just happen to be teenagers!” says Stephen Holley, the school’s Director of Commercial Music, who is himself a professional musician. “The amount of effort they pour into the music, our rehearsals, and our performances is astounding. I couldn’t be more proud of them!”
“We believe our band program is what music education should be—new and exciting,” says Upper School Division Head Eric Chandler. “In addition to honing their technical skills as vocalists and musicians, students learn how to perform before, connect with, and master the responsibilities and obligations performers have to an audience. They learn discipline and they discover how to exude joy on stage.”
