Springers track meet a success yet again

The Glenwood Springers’ Annual Community Track meet was held on July 6. The meet was a chance for families and friends to see the progress that the 70-plus boys and girls on the Glenwood Springers Track Team made over the course of the season.

The meet couldn’t have happened without our many volunteers — thank you. Also, we are grateful to our team sponsors: Bighorn Toyota, Bank of Colorado, Glenwood Springs Ford, and Glenwood Springs Subaru. And thank you to our relay sponsors: Auto Glass Specialists, Glenwood Insurance, Earth-Wise Horticulture, Summit Canyon Mountaineering, Kaufman & Kaufman, Dr. Setterberg, Alpine Bank, Paramount Professionals, Advanced Carpet Care & Restoration, Colorado Ranch House, Western Slope Paint Supply, Glenwood Canyon Brew Pub, Glenwood Adventure Co., Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, Blue Sky Adventures, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park and Iron Mountain Spa.

We would also like to thank our volunteer coaches for their support this season: Jenny Barsness, Anne Swanson, AJ Crowley, Alex Cutright and Kai Uyehara. Along with a thank-you to our assistant coaches: Carly Setterberg and Melissa Thrun. Further, we are blessed to have the continued support of Jenny Cutright and Mike Kishimoto, who have been volunteering for the program for many years: Thank you.

The Springers’ Track Team qualified nine athletes for the Regional USATF Junior Olympic Championship and three for the National USATF Junior Olympic Championship: Jacob Barsness, Reid Swanson and Benjamin Swanson. Nationals will take place July 25-31 in Sacramento, California.
