HRHS Memorial Results, Photos and Video

We didn't have ideal weather for the HRHS Memorial this year, but we got most of the meet in before the storm system took us out.

THANK YOU to all the parents, grandparents, siblings, friends and supporters who made our meet happen. It's impossible to put on a great meet without LOTS of help, and we appreciate everyone who signed up, showed up, took on extra responsibility, came early, stayed late, and generally went above and beyond to help. THANK YOU!!

We don't have our own photos of the meet, but Colorado Milesplit provided full coverage including photos and video! (Unfortunately, you have to be a subscriber to see full size photos and to play videos but you can see hundreds of thumbnails). Click here for results for the events we completed.

We do have photos of our Mother's Day Flower Pick Up last week. Thanks to all the athletes and parents who sold flowers, helped unload the truck and helped get flowers to our supporters before Mother's Day!


  • Final Team Dinner -- Wednesday 5/11 @ Lathrop's (6513 Dutch Creek Street)
  • Conference Meet -- This is on two days (Thursday 5/12 and Saturday 5/14 @ Sports Authority Stadium in Parker) with a day in between to give us some cushion in case of weather issues.
  • State Meet -- Thursday - Saturday, May 19-21 @ Jeffco Stadium
  • Track Banquet -- Tuesday, May 24 @ 5:00 in the HRHS Commons

Frosh/Soph Results and The Rest of This Week

Our Golden Baton winners from Monday's
Colorado Meet of Champions. Two of them
are sophomores!
Our freshmen and sophomores ROCKED at the Continental League Frosh/Soph Championship!

Click here for complete meet results.

Our Boys and Girls both placed 3rd out of 10 teams in our league! Top 8 place winners score team points. Scroll down for a list of Top 8 place winners from the Frosh/Soph Championship.

We are excited to see what the next few years will bring for HRHS Track with such a strong group of freshmen and sophomore girls and boys!

We're not done yet this week! 

Tonight we have Team Dinner for all JV and Varsity athletes at Krusoe's house (9055 S. Forrest Drive).

Tomorrow is the HRHS Memorial at Sports Authority Stadium in Parker, and the forecast is for AWESOME track weather!  Click here for the meet schedule and NOTE that order of some field events is reversed from normal to accommodate some of our athletes who compete in multiple events.

A HUGE THANK YOU to all the parents who have already volunteered to help tomorrow. We still need help (no experience necessary!) in a few areas -- Long Jump, Shot Put, Discus, Pole Vault, Concessions and Coaches Lunch.  If you have an athlete competing in any of these events, or if you can help out in the non-event areas, it's not too late to sign up. Volunteers, look for an email later today about what to expect tomorrow. And plan on our Kentucky Derby party after the meet at On the Rox.

Meet Results + Flower Pickup + Please Volunteer (new slots open!)

We still have two more meets this week -- the Frosh/Soph Championships today and the HRHS Memorial on Saturday (more on that below -- we still need help!), but we've already posted some great results this week! At Valor's Colorado Meet of Champions, HRHS Track came home with lots of hardware from both individual events and relays!

 Click here for Complete Meet Results -- including our sweep of the Golden Batons for both girls and boys 4x800 meter relays

Special congratulations on these Monday performances:
  • Eric Krauss' PR triple jump of 44' 9.5" put him in 3rd on the state leaderboard for 5A and 6th for all classifications! 
  • Morgan Krusoe's time of 46.30 in the 300 Hurdles met the National Elite Silver standard.
  • Leilah Vigil's shot put of 38-10 also met the National Elite Silver standard.
  • Our Boys 4x800 relay moved into 5th in the 5A rankings. 
  • Our Girls 4x400 relay moved into 13th in the 5A rankings.
  • Our Girls 4x800 relay moved into 15th in the 5A rankings.
Click for Boys and Girls official state rankings. These are changing with every meet. Remember that the top 18 in each classification after next week's Conference meet qualify for the State Meet May 19-21.

Our team is young this year, and we're excited to see how our freshmen and sophomores stack up at today's Frosh/Soph meet. Click here for today's schedule and watch for details on their performances later this week.

  • Earlier Flower Pickup -- Thursday May 5 from 1-6 pm. Please remind the people who bought flowers from you to pick them up. We have no way to store plants that are not picked up on Thursday.
  • Team Dinner @ Krusoe Family (9055 S. Forrest Drive) on Friday May 6 @ 6:30 pm
  • HRHS Memorial Meet: We still need a number of parent volunteers, especially in the horizontal jumps and throws. There are also additional slots open for concessions. The food truck we originally had scheduled canceled so we need more help in that area than originally planned. Please (pretty please??) click here to sign up and help! Also, keep in mind that JV athletes are required to be at the meet helping; they will have specific assignments and will receive community service hours for their work.
Also mark your calendar for:

  • Track Banquet. This is for all athletes (JV and Varsity) who finished the season with us on Tuesday, May 24 @ 5pm. More details to come.

Earlier Times for Flower Pick Up

The nursery is delivering our Mother's Day Flowers earlier than originally planned so the time for pick up has changed.

Please communicate this change to the people who purchased flowers from you along with advice to avoid the 2:45-3:15 timeframe when traffic will be heavy due to dismissal from Cresthill and HRHS!

Mother's Day Flower Pickup

When:  Thursday, May 5 (1:00 - 6:00 p.m.)

Where:  In the front of HRHS.  Our tent will be between the Main Entrance and the Student Parking Lot

Thank you for supporting HRHS Track!!

We Need Your Help This Week!

HRHS Track has a lot going on this week, and we need help from our parents with these three events:

  • HRHS Memorial Invite on Saturday, May 7: This is the meet we host. We have 54 volunteer slots that need to be filled, and currently only 23 parents/supporters signed up to help (if you're one of them, THANK YOU!). We need your help! Please click here to sign up for a slot.
    • The forecast is for sunny and 73. It should be a great day to be outside!
    • We need your help so coaches can coach. Without your help, our coaches will be doing some of these jobs instead of coaching our kids. Also...we have 23 slots and 9 coaches so this doesn't happen without more parents pitching in.
    • Get a front row seat to see your kid compete! If your son or daughter is a thrower, sign up for throws. If your kid is a jumper or vaulter sign up for jumps or vault. If your kid is a runner, white flag workers and relay exchange zone judges are right on the track. So are awards runners (and they get their exercise for the day too!)
    • These jobs are simple. Most involve helping measure or record marks. Some involve watching to see that athletes don't scratch in the jumps and throws or don't go outside exchange zones in the relays. Coaches will help you with everything you need to know to do a great job.  Please find a way you can help.
  • Flower Pickup on Thursday, May 5 @ 3:30 - 7pm Noon - 6pm
    • This one is easy! Just notify anyone who purchased plants from you that they will be able to come pick them up on this day.
    • We'll deliver plants rain, shine (or snow) and have no way to store them after this pickup window so please spread the word!
    • We will be in front of the school, with parking close by in the front and student lots. Athletes will be helping carry plants to vehicles.
  • Team Dinner on Friday, May 6 @ Krusoe's
It's going to be a busy week with three meets scheduled (Monday, Wednesday and Saturday -- and one of them being ours to host), Flower Pickup, and a Team Dinner.  Check our calendar for details and watch for emails from Coach Padjen on meet schedules and any potential changes due to weather.
