At last year's game between Hotchkiss and Olathe, Bulldog sophomore Alex Smith made two interceptions and was in on two tackles in the Bulldogs' 34-13 non-conference win. This year, Smith stole the show, running for 177 yards and four touchdowns in 23 carries.
The last time Hotchkiss attracted enough tennis players to field a junior varsity team, Mike Price still had several years of coaching in front of him. But when 20 showed up on Day 1, head coach Brian Benson was thrilled.
After experiencing big improvement under new head coach Kendal Roberts in 2012, the Lady Bulldogs volleyball team is hoping to improve on its record again this fall.
Hotchkiss finished just below the middle of the pack in 2012 Western Slope League standings with an 8-13 overall, 4-6 league record.
