It's been an amazing spring for the Sun Devils! Last weekend, two seniors competed in the 3A State track and field meet. One took first in both the 100M and 200M sprints, while the other finished a close second in the 200M race.

On Friday night, Kent Denver boys' lacrosse faced off against #1 seed Regis Jesuit High School in the 5A state championship game at Mile High Stadium. The Sun Devils battled hard but ultimately fell 10-4 to finish as state runners up. Congrats to the team on their fantastic season!

After 1-0 victory over Colorado Academy in a cold and rainy 3A semifinal over the weekend, girls' soccer played in the state championship game against Jefferson Academy on Tue., May 22. The tightly-played game was tied 1-1 through regulation and two overtime periods, leading to a high-stakes penalty shootout at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. Although the KDS team ultimately fell short in the shootout, we are tremendously proud of their state runners-up finish!

Girls' golf also competed at State this week and, thanks to two strong rounds, finished as runners up in the team competition. Kudos to the girls on their great year!
