Local 3A, 4A athletes look to shine at state competition

LAKEWOOD, Colorado ” Area track and field athletes will be present en masse at this weekend’s state track and field meet, which kicks off today at Lakewood’s JeffCo Stadium. More than 30 Class 4A and 3A athletes from Garfield County high schools will be in attendance at the three-day, all-class meet.

After previously holding the 4A/5A meet in Lakewood and the 3A/2A meet in Pueblo, the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) is holding everything in Lakewood this year.

Today’s action will feature mostly preliminaries, with the 4×800-meter relay finals and the Class 3A and 5A 3,200 finals on the track schedule.

Friday will feature a morning of prelims and a final-filled afternoon and Saturday’s schedule consists only of finals.

Field-event prelims and finals will be spread across the three days.

Demon golfers look to make noise at state … again

COLORADO SPRINGS ” Glenwood Springs’ girls golf team opened some eyes at last year’s Class 4A girls golf state tournament, placing third overall behind first-place Colorado Academy and second-place Kent Denver.

The Demons hope to produce similar results in 2009, and they’ll set out to do so Monday and Tuesday at Patty Jewett Golf Course in Colorado Springs.

Class 4A Western Regional champion Michelle Stripp, who shot a 69 at Montrose’s Cobble Creek Golf Course on May 5 to claim her region title, will lead a crew of four Glenwood golfers into the two-round, two-day state tourney.

Stripp placed fifth with a two-round score of 164 at Rolling Hills Country Club in Golden last year at state.

She’ll be joined by fellow state veteran Tasha Derby and newcomers Kelsey Warkentin and Brittaney Cole. The foursome helped the Demons to a regional-winning score of 245 in Montrose.
