Competing in the 2018 Broomfield Shootout Thursday-Sunday in Broomfield, the Glenwood FC U19 team, composed of players from Glenwood Springs High School, Colorado Rocky Mountain High School, Roaring Fork High School, Basalt High School, and Aspen High School won the tournament, going 3-1 in the three-day tournament under head coach Evan Segal.

Glenwood FC outscored their opponents 12-5 in the tournament, and beat out teams from Kansas and the Metro Denver area for the tournament championship.

The U19 team defeated Sedgwick County (Kan.) on Friday by a score of 2-0, before then beating Real Colorado 6-1 and Broomfield Blast SC 01 3-1 on Saturday.
