The San Juan Bronco football team was handed their first loss of the season on August 21 to the hands of the Summit Academy Bears.

John Young has been playing golf as long as he can remember. He pretty much grew up at the old nine-hole course in Monticello.

Three days of competitive golfing at the Hideout Golf Course ended in high drama on August 2. After 36 holes of play in the Hideout Amateur, Brandon Lyon and Michael Sweet were tied at one over par. Rather than calling it as tie, the pair decided to go to a playoff to determine a winner. Both...
A lot has happened in the nine months since the 2019 San Juan High School football season came to a premature close at the hands of Region 12 opponent Richfield on October 25, 2019. It could even be said the bitter taste of the 41-20 loss to the Wildcats in the first round of the 3A state...
