LAKEWOOD | Hinkley’s resurgence continued on the track continued with more phenomenal performances from stars Darrien Wells and Angel Heredia Sunday on the final day of the Class 5A state track meet. In an abbreviated two-day meet at Jefferson County Stadium, the Thunderbirds racked up 20 points more than they did a year ago and repeated their third-place finish from the previous season, as the Thunderbirds lacked the depth to keep up with Fountain-Fort Carson and Monarch, who traded punches until the last event.


LAKEWOOD | The points came early and often for the Grandview girls track team at the Class 5A state track meet and piled up all the way to the final event Sunday. By the time the abbreviated two-day meet concluded at Jefferson County Stadium, the Wolves had accrued more points than any other girls team in at least the past decade and cruised to the first state track championship in program history.
