Springers Track Meet a success

The Glenwood Springers’ annual Community Track meet was held on Thursday, July 9. The meet was a chance for families and friends to see the accomplishments that the 70-plus boys and girls in the Glenwood Springers’ Track Club have made over the season.

We could not have put on the meet without our many volunteers. Thank you so much! Also, thank you to our sponsors who made our meet possible: Bank of Colorado, Bighorn Toyota, Glenwood Springs Ford, and Glenwood Springs Subaru. We also had numerous corporate relay sponsors: U.S. Bank, Auto Glass Specialists, Glenwood Insurance, Earth-Wise Horticulture, SGM, the DeHerrera Family, Fairway Mortgage, Barsness Law Firm, the Hollenbaugh family, the McPherson family and the Risner family.

Further, we would like to send a huge thank-you to the team parents who helped at practices, at the Springers’ meet, and at the different meets all over the state. This year, the club qualified eight athletes for the regional USATF Junior Olympic meet and one for the national meet.

We would also like to thank our volunteer coaches and assistant coaches for their support. We are blessed to have the continued support from Jenny Cutright, who has been a volunteer for the program for many years; thank you, Jenny!

Finally, we owe a great deal of our success to Mike Kishimoto, our retiring president of the board, who has been volunteering for this track club for the past 29 years. Thank you, Coach Kishimoto!
