Cotopaxi High School Sports News

Cotopaxi High School Pirates

Welcome to My name is Troy Schwindt and I was the sports editor and managing editor of the Canon City Daily Record in the late 1980s through 1998. We used to cover Cotopaxi and Custer County sports, in addition to Canon City and Florence. The newspaper industry, unfortunately, has cut back staff and resources, so small towns like Cotopaxi receive little to no coverage of their sports teams.

I hope to change that with I will post feature stories, game stories and photographs of each varsity team throughout the 2019-20 school year. We’ll also have some coverage of the non-athletic events at the school. While I can’t be at every event, I vow to provide fresh content on a regular basis.

I will have some photography help from a handful of parents who have been gracious enough to contribute their images. For story ideas, ad inquiries or questions, email me at or call (719) 330-1527.
