Spring Sports Review


Summer is almost here and that means MOST of the spring sports seasons have concluded. An emphasis on most was made because Girls Soccer and Girls Lacrosse have seasons that are still going. Let’s take a look back at every team this spring.

Baseball- The baseball team made its first playoff in 3 years. Their season ended with a 6-4 loss to Broomfield, who is now in the elite 8 and has a shot at the title. After starting the season 3-5 they closed out the season by going 8-3. The baseball team is one to look out for next season as they will return 6 starters from this great season.

Boys Lacrosse- The boys lacrosse team ended their season with 15-7 defeat to Regis in the semifinals. They finished the season 13-5. They only lost to Regis and Creek in state. With several Junior and Sophomore starters the boys are the favorites to win state next year because of their vast amount of returning starters. The two teams in the state championship, Regis and Creek, will lose almost their entire starting rosters to college.

Girls Lacrosse- STILL PLAYING! The girls lacrosse team went 11-6 in the regular season to earn themselves the 12 seed in the playoffs. After pulling off two upsets over #5 Columbine and #4 Chaparral they play the defending champions Colorado Academy in the semifinals. This is the girls first semifinal appearance in 10 years.

Girls Soccer- The girls soccer team, just like lacrosse, is still playing. They play Broomfield in a semifinal match this Saturday. Going into the game the girls are riding a 5 game win streak. They went 14-4 in the regular season. The girls are looking to deliver the first state championship to Arapahoe this year.

Track and Field- The Track and Field State Championship Meet is this Saturday at Jeffco Stadium. The girls track team took fourth in the Centennial League Championship and placed first in the City of Centennial Championship. The boys placed third in the Centennial League Championship and also took home first in the City of Centennial Championship.  

Boys Swimming- The State Championship Swim Meet is being held today, May 19, in Thornton. Where a few Warrior swimmers look to make their mark and represent Arapahoe at the highest level in the state. Arapahoe finished their season with a 7-2 record (6-1 in league), placing them at second in the Centennial League, behind Cherry Creek, who finished 10-1 and 7-0 in league. The Warriors’ success in the pool has been lead by Griffin Eiber, senior, who leads the team in many events, and has committed to continue his swimming career at the University of Indiana. Hopefully the Warriors swimmers in state can finish the season off strong today in Thornton.
