One last All-Statement
Post Independent Sports Editor
Athletes from high schools in Garfield County have a chance to be recognized for their on-field accolades next week when the Colorado High School Coaches Association holds the 2013 All-State Games at Adams State University in Alamosa.
Roaring Fork High School was the county’s most represented school. It will send four athletes and a coach to the games, which will take place June 4-8.
The Rams, who reached the Class 3A Sweet 16 in boys basketball this season before losing to eventual six-time state champion Faith Christian, will send seniors Dakotah Grett and Trae Moxley to the games. Both Moxley and Grett will play for the White Team at the Games and will be coached by Larry Williams, their coach at Roaring Fork.
Moxley will be going to college for something other than basketball this fall. This past February, he signed a letter of intent to play football at Colorado State University in Fort Collins.
Also making the trip to Alamosa will be Megan Gianinetti, who will be on the girls basketball Blue Team, and her twin sister, Hattie, who will be on the volleyball Red Team. Both Megan and Hattie Gianinetti are set to extend their volleyball playing careers at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction in the fall.
A pair of Glenwood Springs High School athletes will also make the trip. Mikaela Richardson will play volleyball with Hattie Gianinetti on the Blue Team, and Auston Tribble will play in the All-State football game on the South Team.
Also slated to play football on the South Team will be Stephan Padilla, who played at Grand Valley in Parachute and helped the Cardinals to an 8-2 overall record this past season.
The All-State football game will take place at 7 p.m. June 7 at Rex Field on the Adams State campus.
Volleyball games will be held at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. at Adam’s State’s Plachy Hall.
Basketball games begin at 9 a.m. June 8 at Alamosa High School for boys games, with an 11 a.m. June 8 start time for girls games. Those will also be played at Alamosa High School.
Championship games will be played in the afternoon.
This is the 56th year the CHSCA has held its All-State Games event. The organization also sponsors All-State events in softball and wrestling.
