Peak Performer of the Year: Liam O’Halloran, The Classical Academy

Coach of the Year: Gary Long, Palmer Ridge

First team

Brandon Bervig, Liberty, sr.: He helped the Lancers to three Class 5A CSML titles in his prep career and a second-place finish at the regional tournament, all while posting a 71.4 scoring average his senior season. He placed fifth at the two-day state tournament, shooting a 4-over par 146. He signed with UCCS to play men’s golf.

Liam O’Halloran, TCA, jr.: He was one of the most consistent golfers in the area, evident by his four tournament wins. He twice broke his personal best, including firing an 8-under par 64 at Four Mile Ranch Golf Course. At the Class 3A state tournament Boulder Country Club, he finished with a 6-over par 146 — enough for an eighth-place showing and to lead the Titans to fifth place.

Lucas Howell, Liberty, sr.: The senior had an impressive season, posting a scoring average of 73. He placed 15th at the Class 5A tournament, thanks to a superb second day. He fired a 2-over par 73, more than enough to eclipse his first day showing of 80. That performance helped the Lancers to an eighth-place finish in the final team standings.

Drew Laake, Palmer Ridge, sr.: As the lone senior, Laake led the Bears to a program-best third-place finish at the Class 4A state championship at The Club at Flying Horse by carding a 2-over 74 on the second day. It topped his first day, in which he shot a 79. He finished with a 153, enough for a three-way tie for 10th place.
