Lindsay Joy joined the FOX31 and Channel 2 sports team in July of 2018 as a sports reporter.
Born and raised in Rancho Santa Margarita, California, Lindsay fell in love with sports at a young age. The daughter of a Kansas Jayhawk alum, she grew up watching plenty of college basketball and soon became a fan of all sports. But her love for college basketball grew even stronger when she attended Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA.
Since graduating from Gonzaga with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, Lindsay has worked as a sports reporter and anchor all over the country. From covering the Cowboys in Wyoming to the Cavaliers in Charlottesville, she has seen plenty of great (and sometimes not so great) games. Lindsay eventually moved back to Spokane, where she had the chance to cover her alma mater’s 2017 run to the national championship game. She also covered Mike Leach and the Washington State Cougars, a beat that was never boring.
Lindsay is thrilled to be in the Mile High City and is always on the lookout for great local sports stories. If you have any ideas, questions, or just want to talk about Zag basketball, you can find her on Twitter (and sometimes Facebook).
DENVER — Grace Broadhurst’s college gymnastics career has come with plenty of highs and lows, but through it all she has stayed positive. “My sophomore year, I tore my left ACL, and had one major reconstruction surgery and then two more after in that same year,” she says. “To have three surgeries in one year and be out for two full seasons. It wasn’t the most fun, but being surrounded by incredible people in coaches and teammates, it was a […]
CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Jeffrey Prager knows well that sometimes wisdom means knowing what you don’t know. At 69 years young, Jeffrey just earned his second-degree black belt in the style of karate known as Shotokan. “You’re always learning,” says Jeffrey, who trains at Colorado Budokan. “First of all, I didn’t know if I’d have the stamina to make it through the test. I have felt a couple of slow downs during the course of my career here.” He called the […]

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Max Stein has accomplished in the last century. He’s a Navy veteran who served in World War II. He also wrote two books and taught math at Colorado State for thirty years. Before his teaching days, he was a three sport athlete and even had a brief stint in coaching. “You see I comb my hair. If I had stayed in coaching, I’m sure I’d be as bald as Steve.” Steve is Max’s son-in-law, who says […]
DENVER — From take downs to rowdy crowds, Saturday’s state wrestling championships at Thornton High School were action-packed. But as heated as things get on the mats, the competitors at this tournament are a special community. “Really, we all just support each other,” says Loveland junior Audrey Bankes, who placed second in the 118-lb. weight class. “We have way more fun and are joking around with each other more than the boys do. It’s just a community of wrestlers, we all want each […]
DENVER — The University of Denver’s hockey team has been described as young but successful. It’s a theme that starts at the top. “I think age really is a number, and it really comes down to who you are as a person and your ability to build relationships,” says Pioneers head coach David Carle. At 29 years old, Carle is the youngest head coach in college hockey. There are still a few months left to go in the season, but […]

But before they head southwest, David Dahl, Trevor Story and Kyle Freeland spent some time visiting fans at the UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital on Friday. “Coming to see these guys brightens our day just as much as it does them, I think,” said shortstop Trevor Story. One of the highlights of the day was meeting […]
DENVER — It’s one of the best starts to a season ever for the University of Denver gymnastics team. The Pioneers are ranked No. 7 in the country, the third-highest ranking in program history. “We have worked so incredibly hard all preseason,” says senior team captain Claire Kern. “To just get out there and do our thing and be so calm, cool and collected — honestly, I couldn’t be more proud of our entire team.” The Pioneers won their season opener on Jan. […]
DENVER — Liberty Timmens is just 9 years old, but she has seen plenty of Colorado Mammoth lacrosse games. “I think what’s fun is the excitement, the music and the goals,” she said. On Sunday, she got a whole new view of the action.

I was thinking, ‘Don’t mess it up,'” […]
DENVER — It was a rare sight at Pepsi Center on Saturday, one director of conversion Matt Mennona calls “organized chaos at its finest.” For the first time in 13 years, the Avalanche and Nuggets played home games on the same day. That meant the Pepsi Center conversion crew had to flip the floor from ice to hardwood in 90 minutes or less. The Avalanche started things off with a 1 p.m. face-off against the L.A. Kings. Just minutes after the Avs capped of a blowout win, the […]
FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Standing at just under 7 feet tall, it’s as though Nico Carvacho was born to play basketball. “I never really had a growth spurt,” says the Colorado State University junior power forward. “I kind of just grew gradually every few years and stopped at 6’11”.” It’s not just the height; he’s got the passion for the game, too. “It’s been fun to watch the work he’s put in,” says CSU men’s basketball coach Niko Medved. “I think […]
