VISTA PEAK: Coach DaVaughn Thornton Sr.’s Bison racked up seven wins last season and a Class 4A state playoff berth last season and will face a slate in 2022 that is largely different than it was in that campaign. Vista PEAK has a strong opener against Aurora Public Schools rival Rangeview on Aug. 25 — looking to extend a win streak against the Raiders — which it hopes will generate some early momentum as the schedule turns toughest in the middle season. In consecutive weeks, the Bison pay a visit to Vista Ridge (Sept. 23), play on the road against Thomas Jefferson, play host to a Ponderosa team that shut them out last season (Oct. 7) followed by a road game against nine-win Denver South on Oct. 13. Last season: Vista PEAK’s 2022 opponents combined for a 54-55 record in 2021.
