MCHS baseball team looks for upperclassmen to assume leadership roles

The Moffat County High School varsity baseball team’s trip to the 4A state playoffs last season was no fluke. Four seniors, including 4A Western Slope League co-player of the year Ben Williams, anchored the team. The Bulldogs scored double-digit runs in six games and routinely saw the ball fly out of the park at the hands of multiple batters. But this season, head coach Justin Folley said how his players fill the roles of the four departed seniors will determine if the Bulldogs make it back to the playoffs.

MCHS girls basketball team looks for return trip to playoffs

In his first year as head coach, Matt Ray led the Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team to the 4A state playoffs. As he is set to begin his second season, Ray said the goal is no different. The Bulldogs advanced to the Sweet 16 round before falling to No. 1 seed Longmont High School, 88-47, in March. To advance further, Ray said it all began during the summer with workouts and camps. “Experience-wise, we had a great summer,” he said. “Every girl did all the stuff to jumpstart the season, and the experience from last year will only help.”
