Moffat County has moved into the new Blue Level, as of Saturday morning, as designated by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Moffat County has met the requirements by having fewer cases of COVID. The change in the dial means businesses will be able to expand service capacity. Moffat County Public Health Director Kari Ladrow says it shows Moffat County is a strong and resilient community.

One thing that the less restrictive level affects is high school sports. Before, the basketball JV teams had to watch the Varsity boys and girls teams play on a TV screen in a classroom, and vice versa. Not anymore. Here is Moffat County High School Athletic Director Jeremy Cheuvront.

The Moffat County Bulldog Basketball teams unexpectedly spent the night in Granby Friday night, after their games. Bad weather shut down Rabbit Ears Pass, and Highway 40 from Kremmling to Steamboat Springs. The 66 players and coaches were able to find lodging in Granby. Bulldogs also won all of their games in Granby. On Saturday, the boys beat Grand Junction Central but the girls lost.

In basketball, the Sailor boys team beat Palisade in a close one, 42-39, and the girls team lost. The hockey games for the Sailors were postponed because of the weather.

Both Hayden teams lost to Vail Christian Friday, but the girls crushed West Grand Saturday, 46-18.The Soroco basketball teams beat North Park on Saturday. Both the boys and girls teams are undefeated.

Moffat County High School is rewarding the students for positive behavior and for doing the right thing. It’s the PRIDE program, which stands for Prepared, Respectful, Invested, Determined, and Exceptional. Katie Blankenbaker is Assistant Principal.

The high school students can accumulate those PRIDE points to be used at school events like Dodgeball or a Mario Kart tournament this week. There is also an end-of-year silent auction for the students to get things like TVs, electronics, and camping gear, using those PRIDE points they have earned. It’s to show the students that the school appreciates their positive behavior.

From Routt County Public Health… We’re all in this together. Please wear your masks and keep socially distant. Help make COVID stop with you.
