GHS Cross Country — A season that already was one for the history books got even more memorable on Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Colorado State Cross Country Championship in Colorado Springs.
Opposing teams might want to start watching film on the Gunnison Middle School (GMS) seventh grade football team as they rolled yet another opponent. On Saturday, Oct. 17, GMS traveled to Delta to take on the Meeker Cowboys. The Mustangs came ready to play on both sides of the ball, coming away with a 38-0 shutout victory. GMS will be home for the final time this season today, taking on Delta White at 3 p.m.
The pitching was no match for Gunnison High School’s Britt Propernick at the Colorado Coaches of Girls Sports All-State game on Sunday in Denver. Propernick represented Gunnison well, getting three hits in four at bats. Additionally, Propernick can add another accolade to her belt, as she earned first team all-league for her stellar play this season.
Cowboys fall on the road
The Gunnison High School (GHS) football team got off to a great start on Friday against Meeker High School. But things didn’t bounce their way after the first quarter. After being shutout to start the game, Meeker scored 48 points unanswered to walk away with the 48-0 victory. Nico Marchitelli led the way with 96 passing and 37 rushing yards. Matthew Solanik notched 69 yards receiving. Defensively Sam Buckhanan led the way with nine tackles. Additionally, Justice Williams and Solanik both recorded an interception. The Cowboys will be back on the field tomorrow. They travel to Cedaredge to take on the Bruins, as they look to get their first win of the season. Cedaredge is 2-0 so far this season, beating Del Norte (33-0) and Olathe (14-12).
Things may not have gone the way Gunnison High School (GHS) football team wanted on Friday in Mountaineer Bowl, however it was exciting to see them back in action for their first varsity season since 2017. GHS faced off against Florence High School and battled until the very end, falling 32-8 to the Huskies, who are ranked in the Top 5 in Class 1A.
The season started off on a good note for the Gunnison Middle School (GMS) football teams. They took on North Fork (a combination of players from Hotchkiss and Paonia) at home in their season opener, in what was an action packed game that saw the GMS seventh and eighth grade football teams coming away with lopsided victories. The Mustangs will be back on the field on Saturday, traveling to Delta to take on Meeker at 11 a.m.
