  • The Gazette's Peak Performer of the week: Andrea Willis, The Classical Academy, pole vault

    The Classical Academy girls' track and field team put together quite a dynasty in the 3A ranks the past nine years, and now they are navigating the choppier waters of 4A competition. The Titans - who won eight of the past nine team titles in 3A - have at least one event that they should be able to count on for big-time points in their first...

  • Coronado girls' track wins home meet

    Coronado girls' track coach Doug Hugill still remembers when the Cougar Classic track meet was nothing more than the D-11 championships. But in 1974, the meet expanded to include other area schools. Fast forward to 2015 when 25 schools gathered at Garry Berry Stadium on Friday night for the 41st installment of the meet. And it was only...

  • Fountain-Fort Carson's Kalie Black, in new role, leads track and field team to win its own meet

    FOUNTAIN - Kalie Black appears to be thriving in her new role on the Fountain-Fort Carson girls' track and field team. The junior's recent switch from the 400-meter run to the 800 continued to pay off Saturday. In inclement weather, Black had wins in the open 800 and 3,200 relay as the Trojans girls' team won the Ray Campbell Invitational at...

  • Widefield sprinter Jordan Edmonds is doing just fine despite knee tendinitis

    FOUNTAIN - Continually betrayed by knees that threaten to end her running career, Widefield senior Jordan Edmonds won't veer from the goal she set as a freshman Win a state title, maybe more than one.

  • Pine Creek's Zachary Alhamra is a Duke Blue Devil and an overachiever

    The work never ends for Zachary Alhamra. Whether it's abusing his body in pursuit of a best time or chasing academic perfection, the Pine Creek senior is never still for long. Next on the agenda - a valedictorian's speech. One of the top distance runners in the state with a 4.78 GPA, Alhamra earned a full ride to Duke to compete in cross...

  • Trenton Stringari, Marlee Brown clearly hurdle victors

    Even when you're running and jumping, there has to be an edge. A proverbial chip on your shoulder that becomes more noticeable with every step and leap. At least, so decree the top two hurdlers in the area. Cañon City's Trenton Stringari and Palmer's Marlee Brown didn't take things lightly at the Palmer Terror Invitational at Garry Berry...

  • Fountain-Fort Carson sprinters get a surprisingly lengthy run together

    Solace with friends, not an easy feat for high school students in military families. It's hard to move from one zip code to another. Find a close-knit group, only to know you might have to pack up and move again. But somehow the boys' sprinters at Fountain-Fort Carson have mostly managed to stay together - on and off the track. They...

  • 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...

  • Colorado Springs high school track and field programs finding success without a track

    Hours before Vanguard had its first-ever track and field practice, coach Steve Read took out a spray can and made a large oval on the asphalt of the school parking lot. He made sure it looked good, made sure the sides were an even 100 meters and the whole was a precise 400. It wasn't much of a home track - but it would have to do. It had...
