Athletics Announcement - June 22, 2021

Congratulations to all of our Season D sports!  All of our teams were highly competitive and some are still going.  Here is a quick update as we wrap up the State events this week.

Golf: Our Girls Golf team is in the middle of round 2 for their State tournament as I write this.  After round 1, the team was in second place with Aubri Braecklein also in second only 3 strokes behind the leader, Samantha Duncan was in 16th place and Makayla Kinard was in 29th place.  Good luck!

Soccer:  The Girls Soccer team has advanced to the semi-finals!  They play league rival Kent Denver on Wednesday, June 23rd at 5:00 PM.  The game will be at the Stutler Bowl on the Cherry Creek campus.  While our games have not had a gate fee this year you will need to get tickets for both the semi-final game and the State final.  Tickets for the semi-final game can be purchased on-site or online at GoFan (or you can find the link on the CHSAANow website).  NFHS will also be streaming the game but you will need a subscription to watch.  The State Finals will be in Colorado Springs at the new Switchbacks Stadium, Weidner Field, (111 Cimarron St.) at 6:00 PM.  Tickets for those games can be found through the CHSAANow website or through SeatGeek.com.

Track & Field:  Last week our Track & Field team had a huge showing at League meet with our girls taking 1st place and the boys 2nd!  The State Track meet will take place this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and Jeffco Stadium (6th and Kipling).  Tickets for the State Track Meet can also be found at GoFan.  The prelims will be on Thursday and Friday with Saturday holding the finals.  Here is Coach Thimsen's lineup for the first two days:

Thursday will begin at 2:00 pm when Chrisly Kelly will compete in the long jump.  At 2:40 Kate Runyon and Aaliyah Robinson will compete in the prelims of the 100.  Five minutes later, Chrisly will take his act to the track for the 100 prelims.  At 3:40, Aaliyah, Kate, Hallie and Jessie Schaffer will run in the prelims of the 4x200m relay.  Immediately after that, Hallie will get to the high jump pit along with Sierra Haberman for the High Jump at 4:00.  During that time, Hallie will check out of the high jump to go run the 100 hurdle prelims at 4:05.  Aaron Strauber will then run the 110 hurdle prelims at 4:15.  At 5:00 Jessie Beck, Jocey Farhar, Grace Tomasko and Tessa Stadler will run in the finals of the 4x800m relay.  Immediately after that, Jacob Crookston, Evan Mills, Noah Douglas and Sean Beasley will run in finals of the boys 4x800. The day will conclude with the prelims of the 200.  Kate Runyon will run at 6:15, and Chrisly will run at 6:20.  Both have been electric in this event!

Friday will start bright and early with Aaliyah, Kate, Tatum, and Jessie running in the prelims of the 4x100 m relay. The boys triple jump will go off at 10:00 with both Chrisly Kelly and Caden Fullerton.  At 10:30 Jacob Crookston will run in the finals of the 3200.  At 11:00 Aaliyah will compete in the girls long jump and at the same time, the prelims of the 300 hurdles will run right by her as both Hallie Williams and Jessie Shaffer compete in that event.  After lunch at 1:05 Evan Mills will run in the finals of the 800.  At 1:50, the finals of the girls 4x200 will go off.  Friday will conclude when Tatum, Izzy Villegas-Sisneros, Grace Tomasko, and Ella German run in the prelims of the girls 4x400m relay.
