Aspen High hosts slew of games for Homecoming

Aspen Times Staff Report

School spirit soared this week at Aspen High School, literally. Yesterday, students dressed as their favorite high-flying super heroes in anticipation of Homecoming events this weekend. Earlier this week, students wore pajamas as part of homecoming festivities.

Homecoming events in Aspen include home games for the volleyball, football, soccer and cross country teams and, of course, a big dance.

The Aspen volleyball team, 9-3 overall, plays its first home game in over a month Saturday against Olathe. The freshman team plays at 1 p.m., the JV plays at 2 p.m. and the varsity showdown begins at about 3 p.m.

The Aspen football team, 1-2 overall, plays its only Saturday game of the season this weekend at 1 p.m. against Moffat County.

The Aspen boys varsity soccer team, 6-3 overall (not including yesterday’s away game vs. Eagle Valley) plays Vail Mountain School at 11 a.m. The JV teams will square off following the varsity match.

The Aspen boys and girls cross country team hosts its first home meet of the season Saturday morning, the Aspen Chris Severy Invitational.

The memorial meet to the outstanding high school and college runner Chris Severy of Aspen, who died in October of 1998, is one of the biggest and most competitive meets in the state this season.

“I’ve got 26 teams coming in from all over – from Durango all the way to the Front Range,” coach Chris Keleher said. “It’s typically a hugely competitive meet just because of the numbers of teams and runners that come.”
