“We hired Mike Payne to lead the hockey program six years ago,
Steve Fillo, who won two state ice hockey titles and nearly 75 percent of his games at Lewis-Palmer since starting the program seven seasons ago, recently stepped down from his post.

Dusty Kachel will tell you he’s a better baseball player than hockey player. And he might be.
But as long as he keeps tipping in game-winning, overtime goals, his teammates might try to convince him otherwise.
Kachel redirected a point shot between Air Academy goalie Alex Long’s pads 34 seconds into overtime to give D
