Who Has the Top Freshman Class (Boys)? Alan Versaw Sep 27, 2013

This one may surprise you a little. No, I take that back. Nothing about Mountain Vista surprises us much any more. Joshua Romine holds the top freshman time on the top freshman team in the state. And that kind of brings tears to our eyes. Colorado Track XC file photo.

Handicapping the 5A girls race Alan Versaw Oct 13, 2008

Kristen Kientz of Highlands Ranch, this year's freshman phenom in the 5A ranks, has helped transform Highlands Ranch from a mid-level state team to a top-five level team this year.

Looking Ahead to Week Five Sep 24, 2008

Look for more teams to be running at full strength, or close to full strength, this week than last. Large numbers of teams sat most or all of their regular varsity rosters last week and the competitors are ready to roll agai (photo above by Ken Regan).

Week Three Summary Alan Versaw Sep 14, 2008

Santino Apodaca, winner of the Division 2 race at Friday's Kadet Invitational, is key to Rocky Ford's hopes for a repeat state championship.

Nicolls v. Appel Round 1: Nation's Best Square Off in Early Season Meet Scott Bush Aug 29, 2008

It's rare to see such a great early season match-up take place, but that's what happened Thursday evening in Colorado. The top two ranked Midwest boys, Bobby Nicolls (pictured far right by Ken Regan) and Evan Appel, squared off for the first of what could be a few battles this season, while many other top Colorado teams and individuals took to the 5k spread at the Poudre SD Pre-State Cross Country Invitational in Fort Collins.

Cross Country Preview: 5A Boys Alan Versaw Aug 2, 2008

Last year, the 5A boys classification was Wheat Ridge's show, from start of the season to finish. The juggernaut might have advanced to Portland for NTN nationals had not an unfortunate injury slowed one of their top runners. This year, however, it won't be Wheat Ridge's show. Wheat Ridge has departed to 4A, leaving a pile of hungry teams to compete for the gold trophy. Bobby Nicolls and Evan Appel, above, return as the preseason favorites to win the individual title (all photos courtesy of Ken Regan).
