Craig sports briefs: MCHS girls cross-country makes state top 10
Craig — The Moffat County girls cross-country team made the most recent statewide ranking in Class 3A.
The Bulldogs were voted the ninth-best team in the state in 3A by sports writers from across the state, earning 29 points in the rankings at http://www.chsaanow.com. They were just one point behind eighth-place Frontier Academy and three behind Alamosa for the seventh spot.
The top five in the 3A poll have not changed all season, with No. 1 Salida garnering all 10 first-place votes in the most recent poll.
The Bulldogs host their home meet at 9 a.m. Saturday at Loudy-Simpson Park.
Still no date for Berthoud soccer game reschedule
The MCHS boys soccer team was set to host Berthoud on Sept. 14, but after flooding hit the area, Berthoud could not make it out to Craig.
As of Friday, there still was no date and time set for the make-up game. The original plan was to play it sometime this week.
Moffat County’s schedule picks up next week with three Western Slope League games. The Bulldogs travel to Colorado Rocky Mountain on Tuesday and Grand Valley on Thursday, then host Vail Mountain on Sept. 28.
The Bulldogs play three games in each of the following three weeks, as well.
There is a possibility of the game being abandoned if it takes too long to reschedule because it is not a mandatory league contest.

New school record, outdone expectations at state mark bright future for Moffat County track and field
With Saturday bringing with it a new team record, a competition that nearly didn’t happen, and a bet with some slippery stakes, never let it be said that Moffat County High School track and field athletes don’t make their season exciting right up until the very end.
