Wrapping Up the 2014 Season

The 2014 season (and the school year!) has ended, but we're moving right into our 4-week Summer Speed/Athletic Development Camp starting June 2. There are two levels of the camp for various ages from 5th- 12th grade, and identical experiences are offered at 10am and 11am so you have a choice of times. Click here for all the details. Share this information with friends and neighbors. This camp can help athletes in all sports improve their athletic abilities. We hope to see you on June 2!

Our athletes ROCKED at State. Click here for all the results, links to pictures, additional coverage, etc.  Our school records were updated, and 2014 brought lots of new additions! Click here for our Top 10 lists by event for boys and girls.

Conference 2014 Results and Photos

This weekend's Conference meet was the last meet of the season for most of the HRHS Varsity Track team. Congratulations to all our athletes and coaches on a great meet! Both Boys and Girls teams placed 3rd in the team standings. There were too many PR's and season best marks to list them all, and many of our athletes went that extra bit faster or farther to make a state qualifying mark (we'll post our official qualifiers soon; meanwhile, here's a link to the State Meet Schedule).

Congratulations to our Conference Event Champions:

  • Girls 800 Meters Macy Kreutz
  • Girls 4x100 (Alanes Dynes, Shayli Siegfreid, CC Morgan, Taylor Schofield)

Varsity Conference 2014 Moved to Friday/Saturday

PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR THE CORRECT TIME SCHEDULE.

Thursdays haven't been good to us in recent years. This is what Thursday looked like at last year's 2013 Conference Meet. With hail covering the track and infield, we gave up, went home, and tried again on Friday.

With rain and cold in the forecast for Thursday, this year's meet organizers have opted to give our athletes the best possible weather for competition (and state qualifying marks) by moving Thursday's scheduled events to Friday.

The start time for Friday has not yet been determined. HRHS has requested a later start time to accommodate our athletes taking AP tests that day. We expect a start time to be announced by tomorrow morning so please watch for more details to come.

Team Dinner will still happen Friday night, but the start time will change based on the start time for Friday's events.

Once again, our plans for a team picture are thwarted. We will plan on a team picture and uniform turn-in for all athletes not competing at State on Monday after school.

Stay tuned for details on times. We'll share the news as soon as we get it.

The top 18 athletes in each division qualify for the state meet so we'll be cheering for as many of these athletes as possible to move into or stay in the Top 18 this week. Check out our FAQ's article if you have questions about the state qualifying process. Click here for the 3-day State Meet Schedule. Look under "Useful Links" on our website to see complete Leaderboards.

This Week in Track: May 5-10


We're nearing the finish line. This weekend's Continental Conference Championship (on Thursday and Saturday) will be the last meet of the season for our varsity team as a whole. After this meet, there is only the State Championship (May 15-17) for those athletes who qualify (watch later this week for a State Hopefuls post).

THANK YOU from Coach Padjen

I would like to personally thank every parent and track athlete who contributed to make the HRHS Memorial Invitational such a huge success. We have a tremendous group of parents who joined forces to make this one of the top meets in Colorado!

An extra special thanks go to Kim Turnage, Gigi Rex, Lori Roby, Jill Krusoe, Trish Kreutz, and Mandy Bauer for going way beyond what was asked for in helping to make Saturday such a rewarding experience for our team!!!!

And to all the parents who helped with shot put, discus, pole vault, long jump, triple jump, high jump, hurdles, relay exchanges, white flag, wind gauges, food for coaches/workers/officials, awards, clerking the course (a special thanks to Marie McClanahan for her being the best field clerk in the land!), clean-up, concessions and all other volunteering duties, THANK YOU!!!!!!

So many of the visiting coaches were in awe of our parents, their support, and how unified/supportive/friendly our team and parents were. Again, thank you!!!!!!!

In the Books: HRHS Memorial 2014

THANK YOU!

A thousand thanks to all the coaches, volunteers, and athletes who made our 4th 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 awareness and funds for the Second Wind Fund in memory of Arapahoe High School Student Claire Davis

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 these folks (and beg forgiveness for any we miss!):


  • All the parent volunteers who helped in countless ways and kept asking how else they could help throughout the day. We can't name them all, but click here to see who they were.
  • Our JV meet helpers who did everything they were asked and more
  • Shelby Kasch who not only ran but also sang an awesome National Anthem to kick off our day
  • Lori Schofield, who recruited and organized all our volunteers
  • Trish Kreutz, who planned, shopped, and coordinated lunch for coaches and volunteers and Jill Krusoe, who helped set up, serve, and clean up (we're a crew that runs on our stomachs!)
  • Corner Bakery and Qdoba, who donated food for coaches and volunteers and Road Runner Sports who sponsored our meet with a cash donation to our program
  • Mandi Bauer, Gigi Rex and Janice Hapgood (HRHS Counseling Secretary), who were our concessions managers,  and Coach Trautman (HRHS Football), who was one of our Grill Masters (ditto that thing about our stomachs)
  • Marie McClanahan (HRHS staff member) who kept competitors and events moving as our Clerk of the Course for most of the day
  • Sue Dakovich (Athletic Secretary) and Doylene Gorham (Bookkeeper), who organized student volunteers and managed our gate
  • HRHS Booster alumni Jim Kientz and Curtis Fulton who helped make the morning (especially hurdles set up) run smoothly

Saturday (in chronological order)

  • 7 a.m. -- Coaches will be at Sports Authority setting up the track. Parents, if you're an early bird, come out and help. We'll have bagels and coffee. And we'll let you drive the Gator. 
  • 8:15 a.m. -- All athletes should arrive at the stadium. No buses. Click here for schedule.
  • 8:30 a.m. -- Volunteers check-in at garages. If you are a parent volunteer, please click here to double check your assignment. There are a few spaces left for anyone who wants to join the fun. JV Athletes have their assignments and need to report by 8:30 a.m. and stay until the end of the meet.  All volunteers should enter at the lower gate (near the smaller parking lot you come to first when you're driving to the stadium). We will have a list there with your name on it so that you do not have to pay admission. (If your volunteer shift starts later in the day, you still need to come to the lower gate for admission, then go directly to your assigned area). WE LOVE OUR VOLUNTEERS!
  • 9:15 - 3:00 or 4:00 -- We will run the best meet of the season and leave the stadium spotless when we're done. Go Falcons!
  • Post-meet Parent and Coaches Only Party @ On the Rox (SE of I25 on Lincoln)

Frosh/Soph Conference Results

It took a while, but the results have been posted. Our athletes braved cold, windy conditions to put their best on the track on Wednesday. For reference, trailing winds of +2.0 meter/second are considered to be too much of an advantage for marks to count for state qualifying. Our athletes were running into headwinds of up to -7.8 m/s on Wednesday night. It was windy, and in almost every instance the wind was not in our favor!

Complete results are posted here for both boys and girls. Here are our place-winners and scorers from the meet. Congratulations to them and to all our competitors!
