Articles with Denver Christian High School
Maison Tolle returns as one of the state's best jumpers and looks to give Highland a boost over rival Lyons.
As Lyons looks to step up their game from last year to this, Ethan Burton could emerge as one of the key pieces, especially at 400 and 800 meters.

Note: This is the first installment of what I hope to be a lengthy series of visits with some prominent names in the history of Colorado track and field/cross country. Please feel free to suggest names for this series (and it's doubly helpful if you can supply me with contact information). For most of the current crop of distance runners in Colorado, Bret Schoolmeester is only a name in the record books. Very few ever watched him run.
