Lesher Girls' Basketball 8th Grade Wins 2018 District Championship

Congratulations to the 8th grade girls' basketball team on winning the 2018 District Championship game 35-24 over undefeated Preston! The Vikings were hungry for this win after ending their 7th grade season as district runners-up (by 3 points!) to Preston last year. They played an outstanding game and showed tremendous hustle and determination in front of 200 Viking fans at Rocky Mountain High School on Thursday, March 8th and took 1st place in PSD! Not only did they win district, they also showed positive character throughout the game and their entire season! We're proud of you and Congratulations Vikings!

Lesher Viking Team wins 2018 District Wrestling Tournament 

The 2018 Lesher Viking Wrestling team was lead by Head Coach Matthew Moeller. With only one returning district placer from 2017, we had an incredible season going 7-1 in the regular season duals, often battling illness and line up holes to finish tied for first in PSD. With some great coaching from the staff of the Vikings, and an amazing show of resilience and GRIT by the wrestlers, we went into the post season district tournament at Fort Collins High School with high expectations; even after suffering our first dual loss four days prior to Preston (by 3 points!). The team showed up on Saturday, March 3rd and had outstanding performances to take FIRST PLACE at the DISTRICT TOURNAMENT winning 207 to 188.5 over Preston and avenging the only loss of the season. Individual accomplishments included several athletes finishing in the top 4 at districts in their weight classes! It was a wonderful season of growth and determination, and the staff looks forward to working with the next incoming group of student-athletes to defend the title in 2019!!!


 

Lesher Viking Team wins 2016 District Wrestling Tournament

Congrats to our 7th and 8th grade wrestling team for coming from behind during the final round on Saturday, 3/5 to win the PSD Wrestling Championship! The team crowned 6 district champions and 10 place winners (top 4) out of the 15 weight classes.  When a student wins a district athletic title in an individual sport at Lesher they get their picture on our Wall of Champions, and we commemorate the team with the team picture on our Wall of Champions, add a year to the team championship banner in the gym, give each team member a championship t-shirt, and recognize the team at an upcoming pep assembly (and in the Coloradoan and on our website). Way to go grapplers!

CHAMP Outstanding Athletes!

Lesher Middle School has been working with CHAMP (Character in Athletics- Make it a Priority; http://champfc.com/) for the past year and we were officially named a “CHAMP School of Character” for the 2015-16 school year! At the beginning of each athletic season, representatives from CHAMP meet with our coaches to discuss the implementation and assessment of Character Development Plans (CDPs) to intentionally teach and promote positive character to our athletic teams. They have been very complimentary of our staff and coaches, and what we’ve done to promote character at Lesher- NICE JOB COACHES! They also want to use Lesher as a model school that promotes character through the CHAMP program (i.e. coaches’ workshops, training, awards, etc.). This has been a great partnership for many years and is only going to improve in the upcoming seasons!

Every fall athletic team recognized an athlete that was the epitome of positive character on their team. These students were nominated for going above and beyond what is expected of everyone on the team and have demonstrated a track record of positive character in their sport, and academically, behaviorally and socially at Lesher. These students were recognized in front of multiple classes at a surprise assembly in our main gym on Wednesday, November 30th during ELO (see attached pictures)! Congratulations again to the following student-athletes!

  • Julia Herndon, Cross Country, Coach Mayer
  • Davis Lowe, Cross Country, Coach Dixon
  • RJ McLaren, 7th Grade Football, Coach Peitz
  • Collin Hix, 8th Grade Football, Coach Oldenburg
  • Hailey Clark, 7th Grade Volleyball, Coach Tripam
  • Olivia Deines, 8th Grade Volleyball , Coach Martin
  • Seth Bylund, Intramurals, Sponsor Buttice
  • Ally Meland, Varsity Tennis , Coach Ramirez
  • Levi Levad, JV Blue Tennis, Coach Mitchell
  • Jerica Engle, JV Gold Tennis, Coach Wilms

Lesher Middle School is officially teaming up with CHAMP

Lesher Middle School is officially teaming up with CHAMP (Character in Athletics- Make it a Priority; http://champfc.com/) for the remainder of the 2015-16 school year and into the future. Representatives from CHAMP were very complimentary of our staff and coaches and what we’ve done to promote character at Lesher. They want to use Lesher as a model school that promotes character through the CHAMP program.
With all that said, as part of our CHAMP initiative, every fall athletic team recognized an athlete that was the epitome of positive character on that team. These students were nominated for going above and beyond what is expected of everyone else and have demonstrated a track record of positive character in their sport and academically, behaviorally and socially as students at Lesher.

Varsity Tennis - Ally Meland, JV Tennis - Mia Dotson, JV Tennis - Taya Brickner, 7th grade Football - Colton Littlewood, 8th grade Football - Joseph Vasseur, Cross Country - Kevin Conlon, Cross Country - Vaughn Reschenberg, Intramurals - John Loehr, 7th grade Volleyball - Olivia Deines and 8th grade Volleyball - Maggie Henson

7th Grade Volleyball Undefeated District Champions

Congratulations to the 7th Grade Volleyball team for their unbeaten season (11-0) and District Championship win on Saturday 10/17/2015!

 ​

Lesher Wins PSD 8th Grade Football Championship!

On Saturday morning, 10/24, Lesher played Blevins in the first annual 2014 8th Grade Football Championship at French Field. In previous seasons the district middle school football champion was awarded based on the best record of 9 football playing schools after an 8 game regular season. Thanks largely to the work of new Poudre School District Athletic Director, Ron Alexander, we’ve begun a +1 annual 8th grade championship game for the middle schools.

Game notes: A great crowd and Lesher’s pep band was on hand in beautiful weather Saturday to watch an awesome game between two well-coached middle school football teams. Lesher came in at 7-1, the #1 seed, the undefeated defending 7th grade champions from 2013, and carrying a two year record of 15-1 with back-to-back regular season championships. Blevins also entered the game at 7-1 this year, the #2 seed, and last year’s 7th grade runners up with a two-year record of 13-3.

Game highlights: Lesher’s Baxter Tuggle scored on a 1st quarter touchdown run with Landon Correll notching the 2 point conversion to make the score 8-0. The first half was a very close defensive battle, with Lesher still ahead 8-0 at halftime. A 32 yard field goal in the 3rd quarter by Lesher’s Alec Fronapfel made the score 11-0. Late in the 3rd quarter the Vikings Eddie Carabajal recovered a fumble on the 5 yard line resulting in an Omado Tovar running touchdown, and Collin Siegfried’s pass to Landon Correll for the 2 point conversion made it 19-0. In the final quarter Landon Correll ran in another score, but the conversion failed. The final score was Lesher Vikings 25, Blevins Bruins 0. The Lesher defense also played great in holding a very strong Blevins offense scoreless!
