Soccer 8/31

The Warriors’ boy’s soccer team went up the road to Stanley Lake and took home a 7-0 victory. They started off strong for a complete blow out. Leading Stanley Lake 4-0 going into halftime, the Warriors boy’s soccer team kept the pressure on and scored another three points in the second half. “Even though we won by 7-0, we still didn’t play our best. Stanley Lake was just a weak team so we played really selfish because we all wanted to score. We stopped playing like we should have,but 7-0 is still a score to be proud of. If we were more disciplined in a game like that we can easily mercy rule a team,” said Brandon Fellows-Mason, one of the Senior players, after an amazing individual performance, scoring two goals and one assist.

Jefferson Academy came to Spangenberg Field to take on the Warriors at home. Ultimately, they lost 3-0 to the Warriors. “At the time, it was our best game. We had more possession than usual and we were able to play more through them instead of resorting to  long balls, which gave us more opportunities” stated Captain Garrett Pugh when asked to reflect on the game. He had a lot of respect for the other keeper, saying, “But their keeper kept them in the game”.  

Soccer 9/9

Steamboat traveled 3 and a half hours down the mountain to face off against our Centaurus Warriors. Ultimately, they lost in a shut out. Captain Garret Pugh used to say that their strongest game of the season was against Jefferson Academy, but now says,  “Steamboat is the best game we’ve played all season. It was the best team we had played yet and our team really showed our quality, and it was nice to get two shut outs in a row, especially against such a good team”. The Warriors won 5-0 with goals from Sebby Kemp, Brandon Fellows-Mason  Liam Doles, Max Spear and Tyler Jones.

Soccer 9/12

The Warriors traveled to Niwot and for the first time this season, they didn’t win. But they also didn’t lose. With both teams goal-less, the Warriors went home with a 0-0 tie. “I think we played well, but obviously it wasn’t good enough. I think we had chances but we just couldn’t finish them. They had chances and our defending was really good which kept us in the game. If the overtime rule was still in effect I think we could have won that game” said  Garrett Pugh, one of the Senior captains.  “They kinda would have died without you (referring to Garrett) you had like a million saves” Lauren Kidney (Garrett’s Girlfriend) added after listening to Garrett’s comments on the game.

9/13 Soccer 

 Centaurus traveled to Denver to play D’Evlyen, and the Warriors beat the Jaguars 3-1.

“I think maybe we were tired from Niwot, or maybe we just weren’t on, but we didn’t look like ourselves.On a normal day I feel like we could have beat them by a lot more, but a win is a win and I’m happy we pulled it together to finish the game” said Garrett Pugh. When asked his thoughts on the game, Senior Brandon Fellow Mason said

“We played down to their level, they weren’t a good team and we are a good team and yet we struggled against them, and we shouldn’t have struggled” when asked about the low score. 


The Warriors had their first league match and took on Longmont at home. “Longmont has historically not been a good team and I was actually kinda surprised how not bad they were. We usually beat them handedly. They had about two players that caused us a little trouble. They played badly, but so did we. We’re having a phase where we’re coasting. We’re just doing enough to win. We have a huge amount of potential that we’re just not meeting. I don’t know if it’s because we’re super cocky or what. We’re doing the bare minimum to win. We were actually scared we were going to lose or tie, but we won and our defense is so strong Garrett didn’t have to do much, Our defense did so well, and the team was able to adapt well. After the second half, we could find problems and execute what we needed to do to win,” said Brandon Fellows-Mason after their 2-1 win.


After the Warriors won their first league match, they traveled to Greeley for their first away league match. They managed the win, beating Greeley Central 2-1.

Senior Tyler Jones said, “We played pretty bad, not gonna lie. We were losing for a bit but then Eric scored a crazy first goal off a free kick, and after that we were back in the game. I feel like we were overly confident going into the game. We weren’t able to put any goals in for the first half because our offense wasn’t being aggressive enough and capitalizing on opportunities, but I think we know what we need to work on. We can’t get to comfortable and we need to treat every game like a championship game.” 


Football 9/14

The rain came in sheets but with the rain came the Warriors’ first home victory against Hinckly, winning 42-13. After his less than amazing game last week Renzo said, “I was feeling alot better. I didn’t get to start but I didn’t play bad like I did last week, so I didn’t feel like I let my team down. The game as a whole was the confidence boost our team needed”. He later added, “Hinckley tried their best, but we out effort-ed them”.  When quarterback, Chance Wood, was asked to pick a favorite moment of the blow-out game he said,  “The highlight of the game was celebrating with Jack after he ran the ball back for his touchdown”. Jack Paranara had an amazing game with a touchdown off a kick return, as well as two other touchdowns and some amazing catches despite the rain.


Warriors Tennis Team

The Warrior tennis team has had a very strong season, going undefeated in duels and finishing with two first place finishes. Before reviewing the season, it is important to actually explain how high school tennis works, because it is pretty confusing. Each varsity team has 7 slots, 3 for singles, and 4 for doubles. A team wins its duel if the majority of their slots win, so scores range from 4-3 to 7-0. Our tennis team has gone 7-0 in duels, including 5 6-1 wins and 2 7-0 wins, where the entire team, varsity and JV, gets a bagel for bageling the opponent. Bagel wins came against Greeley Central and Longmont. The team also came first in both the Mustang Invite at Ralston Valley and the Centaurus Tournament hosted here. There is one more duel remaining, versus Silver Creek, and then the regional tournament starts next Thursday.


1 Singles: Stephen Zakany

2 singles: Dexy Payne

3 singles: Zach Gablehouse

1 doubles: Jack Manning and Joey Hultgren

2 doubles: Cai Jaffe and Julian Piccolini

3 doubles: Braden Walls and Zander Spradlin

4 doubles: Finn Moriarty and Dylan Kalish


Cross Country 9/2

The Warriors had their home invite this weekend at Waneka Lake. The race is put on every year with  an open division for the public, which CHS Alumni, teachers and friends like to run in. It was a good showing for Centaurus, with front-runner Jake Schwarting winning, as well as the boys team coming first overall. The girls team had a good showing as well, placing third overall. 

Cross Country 9/15

The cross country team went to Arvada West’s home meet “That course is completely flat but it’s all on grass which makes it challenging, and it also rained the night before which made it super muddy and challenging. One of our girls fell. We were all covered in mud.” Said senior runner Erin Erkkila. The girls had an impressive scoring group with their runners 1 through 6 finishing within 20 seconds of each other, and finishing 3rd over all. Jake Schwarting led the boys to another first place team victory. It was their second win this season and  Jake’s second first place finish of the year.
