  • The Gazette Girls' Basketball 3A-A Peak Performer of the Year: Shelby Megyeri, Manitou Springs

    Shelby Megyeri isn't afraid of the spotlight. She began her high school basketball career for Manitou Springs as a freshman on the varsity squad last season and finished as the league MVP. If she was ever nervous, she didn't show it. Megyeri led the team at 15.1 points per game. She led the Mustangs again as a sophomore with 16.6 points, 97...

  • This week's Peak Performer: Heide Baron, Pine Creek track and field

    Pine Creek coach Max Oliver may have an interesting dilemma on his hands when state track and field rolls around in May. What to do with Heide Baron, a razor-quick junior, a steadfast piece to her team's sprint relays and an emerging power in the individual sprinting events. On Saturday, the polite and low-key speedster handily won the...

  • This week's Peak Performer: David Louthan, Air Academy basketball

    The last time Air Academy won a boys' basketball state championship, the guys on the current roster were still nine years from being born. The 2015 Kadets - led by David Louthan - captured the school's first title in the sport since 1989, defeating previously undefeated Longmont 64-59 in Boulder on Saturday. Louthan, a 6-3 senior, scored 21...

  • The Gazette's Peak Performer of the week, Samuel Howard, CSCS boys' basketball

    Samuel Howard is a big guy, and this season his stats and play have equaled the physical gifts he has. The 6-foot-7, 235-pound junior is the anchor for the Colorado Springs Christian School boys' basketball team - a team that looks primed for a serious state title run. Howard was a factor in both regional playoff wins over the weekend,...

  • The Gazette's Peak Performer of the week: Shelby Megyeri, Manitou Springs girls' basketball

    When the Manitou Springs girls' basketball team walked off the court after losing to rival St. Mary's on Feb. 6, there were two ways for the Mustangs to handle it - sulk or improve. They chose the latter, and led by super sophomore Shelby Megyeri, Manitou Springs got its revenge in a 50-39 win Saturday that clinched the 3A Tri-Peaks district...

  • This week's Peak Performer: Cat Wright, Cheyenne Mountain swimming

    Cat Wright was one of the youngest swimmers competing in the 4A state meet, but she proved that the number posted on the scoreboard is all that matters. The 14-year-old freshman from Cheyenne Mountain not only won the 100-yard butterfly state championship on Saturday, she also set the 4A state record with a time of 57.44 seconds. "Cat came...

  • The Gazette's Peak Performer of the week: Donovan Oldham, Rampart basketball

    It doesn't matter what position Donovan Oldham is playing on the basketball court, he's still one of the best players in the state. The Rampart senior is putting up some big numbers, and in recent games he's doing it from a position he had never played before. When sophomore point guard Romeo Maestas went down with a season-ending knee...

  • This week's Peak Performer: Becca Hetrick, Lewis-Palmer diving

    Becca Hetrick made 22 dives in about a 15-hour period of time, but perhaps the most satisfying dive she made last weekend was into her bed for a well-deserved sleep. The Palmer Ridge junior - who dives for the Lewis-Palmer school district team - won back-to-back meets Friday and Saturday with an impressive showing of physical and mental...

  • Senior seeks 2nd title

    It doesn't matter what weight he's competing at, Jess Hankin is one of the best wrestlers in the state. The Coronado senior proved that again when he won the Arvada West Invitational title at the 132-pound class. "He wrestled really well," Coronado coach Matt Brickell said of Hankin, one of his captains. "His bracket was pretty crazy and was...
