With the rivalry leading on for 10 years, being cross town rivals has taken the game to a new level. Every year the two schools battle it out to see who is the best in Castle Rock.

According to Castle View athletic director Derek Cordes the school gym where the games took place were already at capacity before the games even commenced. Many people showed up hours early to reserve their seats for the varsity game.

After the varsity girls win the boys came out onto the court with confidence they were able to win the game.

Representing out on the court each team member preformed a handshake or dance with Senior player Mark Dowsey after their name was announced in the line up. “Doing this builds a bond with our team and hypes everyone up for the game,” said Dowsey.

Despite the team’s best efforts they were unsuccessful at beating Douglas County. With an ending score of 37-45 Douglas County, many sabercats went home disappointed.

Number 42, Colton Homuth said “I thought the game was exciting in the first half when the game was close, but then I was frustrated in the second half because we couldn’t get any momentum.”

Going into the second half the score was 18-17 in favor of the Sabercats. The close scores throughout the game reflects the team’s effort. “The game didn’t go as well as I would’ve wanted, but we’ll get them next year,” said power forward Andrew Locken “ We can put in a lot of work over the summer so we can unify as a team and really have a chance to do something special.”

With high hopes for next time the Sabercats take on the Huskies, the boys varsity team is  going to train to take home a win next year.
