Our extracurricular activities have been heating up!  Caprock’s Knowledge Bowl Team took the 1A State Championship on 3/15! Mandy Calvert leads the team with Megan Salazar. This is the first time Caprock has won the State Championship finishing in second place last year. The team is comprised of 3 juniors, 4 sophomores and 8 freshman. Congratulations to Mandy Calvert and Megan Salazar.
 Making it the farthest in the school’s history, Caprock’s Boys Basketball Team took 6th place in the 1A State championship played on 3/10, 3/11 and 3/12 in Greeley. Congratulations to coaches Tim VanSchaick, Ty Abshear, Jeff Hams and Jim Windsor.  
For the National History Day, Regional Contest on 3/12: Caprock Academy had 16 Projects placed, representing a total of 28 total students. 8 - 1st Places, 4 – 2nd Places, 4 – 3rd Places. Congratulations to Raluca Liles, NHD Sponsor.
The next step is that these students will compete at the state contest which will be held in Denver on April 30th.  The event will be in person at the University of Colorado Denver, Auraria Campus.  Students who place either 1st or 2nd at the state level will continue on to the National Contest.  This contest is traditionally held at the University of Maryland, but as in the past two years it will be held virtually.  Caprock has sent students to the National Contest the last three years.
Congratulations to the students and coaches showing excellence!
