A New Era in Athletics
Kent Denver Country Day joined the Colorado High School Athletics Association (CHSAA) in 1980, kicking off a new era in athletics as several KDCD teams became state powerhouses. Led by Head Coach Chris Doutt Bullard, the field hockey team went undefeated for ten years in a row. The football team under Head Coach Scott Yates won its first state championship in 1986.
In 1990, Kent Denver claimed five state championships in a single school year: football, field hockey, girls’ soccer, boys’ lacrosse and chess, and by the mid-1990s, three more teams had achieved their first state wins: baseball (1993), hockey (1994) and math (1994).
This winning tradition continues today! Kent Denver athletes have won over 70 championships in disciplines ranging from sports to mathematics to Speech & Debate.
