No stranger to winning gold medals, Glenwood Springs High School senior-to-be Allison Brown added a couple more to her collection at the Rocky Mountain State Games in Colorado Springs last weekend.

Brown beat out the field in both the female 15- and 16-year-old 200- and 400-meter track and field races. She also claimed silver in the 100. Brown timed in at 28.34 seconds in the 200, 1:03.41 in the 400 and 13.73 in the 100.

At the State Games in 2009, Brown did exactly what she did in 2010, winning the 200 and 400 and taking second in the 100.

Back in May of this year, Brown helped Glenwood’s 4×100 and 4×400 relay teams to state titles at Colorado’s high school state track and field meet.

Bruce Sarver sunk a hole-in-one at Ranch at Roaring Fork Golf Course on July 31. Sarver’s ace fell on the eighth hole and was powered by a sand wedge.

Ron Nadon hit a hole-in-one at Glenwood Springs Golf Club on Aug. 1.

Swinging a Nike Rescue club, Nadon’s ace found the third-hole cup from 160 yards away. Peter Steckler and Dave Gambrel witnessed the shot.
