It is no secret that Boulder County has a history of producing top-notch talent in the track and field world, and if there is a single event that acts as a showcase for the current wealth of talent at the local high school level, it would be the annual Boulder County Championships. This meet brings together the schools of the county’s two districts, St. Vrain and Boulder Valley School Districts, for a day of competition and celebration.

Part 1 – State Prospects For The Boys

By Renée Haip

Last year, after running a well-executed state race, the boys’ cross-country team brought home a second place state trophy in a race where they were ranked a distant third to favorites Telluride and Crested Butte.
