Thank you and Congratulations!


A thousand thanks to all the coaches, volunteers, and athletes who made our 3rd Annual Highlands Ranch Memorial Meet a great success this weekend. 

  • We had some of the best weather of the season. 
  • We ran well ahead of schedule. 
  • We left the stadium spotlessly clean. 
  • We raised $407.26 through our $1 per ticket donation and donation jar at the concessions stand to benefit the Richard Family Fund.
And we couldn't have made it all happen without everyone's help! Go Falcons!

We appreciate everyone's efforts and send special shout outs to:

  • The Hancock, Rome, and Meis Families who hosted and co-hosted Friday's team dinner
  • Our JV meet helpers who did everything they were asked and more
  • Gigi Rex, who did the design and layout for our meet program
  • Lori Schofield, who recruited and organized all our volunteers
  • Trish Kreutz, who planned, shopped, and coordinated lunch for coaches and volunteers (we're a crew that runs on our stomachs!)
  • Shin Chen and Mandi Bauer, our concessions managers (ditto that thing about our stomachs)
  • Jim Kientz, Booster Club alumnus extraordinaire, who helped make everything run on very short notice


Highlands Ranch won 1st place team trophies for both boys and girls! We saw lots of PR's (click here for complete results) and three HRHS athletes set new meet records and earned MileSplit's National Silver Standard:

  • Macy Kreutz in the 800 with a time of 2:18.69
  • Trevor Rex in the High Jump with 6'7"
  • Connor Turnage in Triple Jump with 47'3"

We did have a photographer for part of this week's meet, but photos have not yet been posted. We'll let you know when they are available. 


JV athletes are done competing, but we have Team Pictures and a small celebration planned for them on Tuesday, May 7.

We're down to two meets left in the season -- Conference Championship on Thursday and Saturday this week and the State Meet May 16-18. Stay tuned this week for a State Meet preview, with information on HRHS's State Meet hopefuls and where they stand in the rankings with only one more qualifying meet remaining.

Be sure to mark your calendars for our End of Year Team Celebration on May 19 @ 4pm -- this is for JV and Varsity athletes -- more details to come.
