Last weekend nine Grizzly track and field athletes competed in the CHSAA State Track Meet at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood, Colorado. The Grizzlies ran into numerous weather situations which caused CHSAA to postpone the meet to Saturday and Sunday and to alter the schedule to only allow running events to run once, all times were final, and field events to have four attempts. While up there the Grizzlies got to experience all classifications competing, this allowed the Grizzlies to perform very well at State.
