Former area basketball stars Aaron Markham (Roaring Fork) and Sean Flohr (Glenwood Springs) were recently named to the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference honor roll. The duo, who play for the Mesa State men’s basketball team, had to have GPA of 3.20 or higher as well as be a starter or key reserve and completed two consecutive semesters or three quarters at Mesa State to make the cut.

Markham, a sophomore, is studying business and has a grade-point-average of 3.27. Flohr, a redshirt freshman, is studying business management, has a 3.22 GPA.

Climb for the Climate, a recreational rock-climbing competition, will be hosted by Colorado Mountain College at the rock wall of the Roaring Fork Campus-Spring Valley Center from 6-10 p.m. on Saturday (Jan. 26).

An entry fee will be determined by each climber’s status with the American Bouldering Series.

This event is a precursor to Focus the Nation, an unprecedented national teach-in to raise awareness of global-warming issues. All proceeds from the climbing competition will support Focus the Nation and climate-change awareness.
