Let me take you back to 1997, Bill Clinton was president, chokers were fashionable and it was the last time Boulder High Girls softball won the title of League Champions. The last time, that is, until...

Kicking the Knights to the Curb
Sophii Sherman, Opinions Editor • October 26, 2022

Deep into the second half of the tense Boulder vs. Fairview soccer game, the crowd holds its breath as the score still reads 0-0. The energy between the BHS Panthers and the Fairview Knights has always been electric. The two schools are widely known for their rivalry, and their two teams are loyal...

Boulder High’s Girls Volleyball team had their first at-home game on August 24th against Westminster High School.

Conquering the Centaurus Warriors
Jonathan Stafford, Features Editor • September 21, 2022

The time on the clock read one minute and thirty-five seconds left in the fourth quarter. With the Boulder High Panthers leading 16-10 over the Centaurus Warriors, the Warriors held the ball at the 20-yard line and a touchdown would win them the game. Fourth down and short was quickly upon the Warriors,...

Kicking off the Season with Controversy
Jules Conners, News Editor • September 19, 2022

A dodgy call cost it all at the Boys Boulder v. Valor Christian soccer game.  Valor player #8 gets a free kick at the end of the first period. He kicks it shy to the right, and the ball bounces off the goalpost and then is kicked back by a Valor player. As the ball hurdles towards the goal, Boulder...

The cross town rivalry, purple vs red, the game that is always circled on the calendar. When Boulder plays Fairview, it’s always a blast for everyone involved. It’s intense, everyone in the arena is passionate about their side, and of course it is loud. Yet, none of this ever stood out to me. The...

The Problem with O.T.
Jonathan Stafford, Staff Writer • March 14, 2022

On January 23, 2022, there were several great quarter-final playoff football games. All of them came down to just one score, but the game that caught my eye the most was the Chiefs vs. Bills game, which went to overtime after the two teams scored a total of 25 combined points in the final two minutes...
