Lewis-Palmer High School (LPHS) is proud of its long and successful tradition in the athletic arena. The Rangers continue to compete at the highest level statewide by having many post-season and state championship appearances.
None of this can be achieved without our school’s Pillars of Excellence: Character, Leadership, Academic Success, School Involvement, and Service to Community (C.L.A.S.S) with character as the foundation.
Most recently, our volleyball team has won four out of the last five state championships having come up short in 2015 as state-runner-ups. In 2015 our baseball and women’s soccer teams were defeated in the state title game. A year later, our women’s soccer team went on a campaign of “unfinished business” coming out on top as the 2016 state champions. In 2017, the men’s basketball team went on a 19 game winning streak to cap off the season as state runner-ups. They followed up in 2018 with another state runner-up finish. We can also proudly claim the LPHS players who played for the 2017 state champion district field hockey team.
LPHS is also proud of the numerous individual state championship qualifiers and placers in wrestling, swimming and dive, gymnastics (district team), tennis, golf, track, and cross-country in which there are many to name.
Our teams on the rise that have also been seen recently in the postseason are our men’s soccer team, ice hockey (district team) (2010 and 2011 state champions), men’s lacrosse team (district team) (2017 league champions), women’s lacrosse (district team) and football (2016 state quarter-finalists). The softball team is very young and has been able to field two teams for the first time in a few years. Both of our school spirit teams (cheer and poms) compete at the state tournament, and our cheer team recently brought home a 4th place finish.
The Ranger Athletic Program is proud of all its teams and the fine coaches who provide the outstanding character and leadership that has led to such sustained success.
Please use email as a primary mode of communication as our Athletic Director and Athletic Secretary are working from home due to the COVID-19 response.

Welcome Ranger Family to the 2019-2020 school year
We look forward to the opportunity to help you develop your children into better men and women of character through one of the best arenas… high school sports. This page contains valuable information to get your child registered for athletics for this school year. There is a lot of info so please read the page in its entirety.
Spring Sports begin on March 2nd, 2020. (Baseball, Girls Golf, Boys Lacrosse, Girls Soccer, Boys Swim & Dive, Track)
Please have all registration done before 3:00 PM on March 2nd, 2020 to be able to compete in a Spring Sport.
All registration paperwork must be completed and submitted to the athletic department prior to the start dates. Students who do not have paperwork in on time are at risk of missing try-outs and/or practice requirement to participate in scrimmages and contests. This may also have an impact on an athlete’s team membership. Click here for the 2019-2020 Athletic Registration Packet
There are two options to register your athlete.
1) Turn in signed hard copies of the required paperwork to the athletic office and only the student needs to create an account for eligibility on Planet HS (AKA Arbiter Athlete). Hard Copies are attached. If you use the hard copy option, we will simply acknowledge in your athlete's account in Planet HS that paperwork has been turned in. No documents will be uploaded.
2) Complete all paperwork electronically online through Planet HS. Both a parent and student will need to create an account. This method requires electronic signatures from athletes and parent so accounts will need to be linked. I believe the only document upload for this option is the sports physical signed by a physician. If you do not wish to upload this document, we can accept this as a paper copy and acknowledge this in the athlete's account.
Physical forms are good for one year. Please be sure physicals have not expired. If we have a current physical on file, it is still good until it expires.
Every student that participated last year should already have an account set up. Please do not create a duplicate account. If you forgot your username or password, please use the reset feature to regain access to your account. This goes for parents as well who used the online registration option.
All freshmen and transfer students that did not participate in Colorado will have to create an account. The account is a requirement by the CHSAA to track athlete eligibility.
When creating your account make sure you add Lewis-Palmer high school as your primary school. This is a crucial step in order for us to see your athlete in our database. If you participate in a district sport that is managed by Palmer Ridge, you will need to add Palmer Ridge as a secondary school so they can add you to their eligibility as well.
To create an account, you can use the quick method. Quick Account Creation gives students & parents the ability to create their account via phone.
To create an account on PlanetHS & follow LEWIS-PALMER HIGH SCHOOL from your phone, text S41482 to 69274. Text HELP to 69274 for more information. Text STOP to 69274 to opt out. Msg & Data rates may apply. The wireless carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. Number of messages varies per user.
If you do not wish to use your phone, you can create an account through https://www.planeths.com For athletes who are sophomore, juniors, and seniors that have transferred schools this school year, they and a parent must create an account to complete transfer paperwork. These accounts must be linked before transfer forms can be filled out. The CHSAA is no longer accepting paper copies of transfer forms and is requiring the completion online.
Please be aware that fees are not added automatically. Once your child registers with the Athletic Office or expresses interest in a sport, we will manually add the fee to their Infinite Campus account. We usually base our rosters on who participated previously or have been given a list of names by the Head Coach.
If you see your child has a fee and is not participating, we will gladly remove it for you. Please email Victoria Lester at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Athletic Office at 719-488-4732.
All fees need to be paid before the first competition. We will refund any fee paid if your child is cut or chooses not to participate BEFORE the first competition. Once a student participates in a CHSAA sanctioned event, we will not refund any portion paid.
If you pay by check to the Athletic Office: We hold all checks until tryouts are done due to previous experience of athletes being cut or quitting soon after. We will process them once we see your student on a final roster or call you to determine if we should return your check or shred it. This will eliminate a six week wait period for a refund of your payment.
