Anthony "Arch" Archuleta (shown with father Anthony Archuleta) grew up in Taos, played for our hockey association starting as a second year mite and is now a junior in high school. In the summer of 2015, he attended a few try-outs and received offers from the Colorado Rampage (U20) and Fountain Valley School of Colorado (U18 AAA). Arch chose academia and Fountain Valley has become his new hockey home after 9 years in Taos Youth Hockey (including 3 years ref'ing while playing). As soon as Arch made the move to Colorado Springs, the team began dry-land training, weight lifting, and hitting the books extra hard. The Fountain Valley Danes lost the first game of the season to Resurrection Christian, but bounced back on Saturday to beat Heritage Varsity 6-4. Arch scored his first goal for his new team and is currently playing as a starting defenseman. You can follow Arch all season long through the Sport Ngin App (search for "Fountain Valley") and cheer on our former team mate, once an Ice Tiger, always an Ice Tiger!
