Glenwood graduate inducted into CHSAA Hall of Fame

Glenwood Springs Class of 1969 graduate Debbie (Lake) Cook was recently inducted into the Colorado High School Activities Association’s 2016 Hall of Fame due to her outstanding career as the girls head volleyball coach at Meeker High School.

While at Meeker, Cook’s teams posted a 393-125 mark in volleyball during her 22 years at the helm, winning nine conference titles and going to the state tournament nine times.

Noted for her work in health and wellness for the northwestern Colorado community, she taught elementary school Physical Education for 30 years and helped with many community outreach health and education programs throughout her career. Her work in the community has earned over $100,000 for the community.

She was named coach of the year three times from the Colorado Coaches of Girls’ Sports and the North West League Coach of the Year eight times. Cook also coached track for 16 years and girls’ basketball for two years. She continues to teach and volunteer in Glenwood Springs several days a week, but maintains her residence in Meeker.
