Booster passes for the 2016-2017 sports season are now on-sale through the booster club. These passes allow you access to all DHS sporting events that have a gate fee as well as the ability to skip the long entry lines! Lines for the homecoming game and last home game were to the fairgrounds! 50% of the profits from the booster passes go directly to help the athletic programs (gate fees go toward the school district).

Why is AstroTurf a safer alternative to natural turf fields? AstroTurf can offer a field that has an improved impact score or GMAX. Impact testing (commonly referred to as g-max testing) measures the shock-attenuation performance of sports surfaces. The GMAX looks at how much force the surface absorbs. This is very important, especially since 10% of concussions are caused by impact with the surface the athlete is playing on (Guskeiwicz et al, 2000).
Who is ready to cheer for Demons' Basketball? Both our boys and girls teams got the #4 seed for the Colorado High School Activities Association 4A State Basketball Tournament.

Congratulations to DHS student-athlete Seamus Millet! Seamus is the recipient of the 2015 Fair Play Award from UIPM for showing great character during the Youth World Championships in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In the fencing bonus round a judge awarded Seamus a victory over another opponent and Seamus didn't accept saying he hit the floor.
