Every year, Boulder County and the area that surrounds it is teeming with track and field talent. The ladies from our area proved as much this year with 51 selections to CHSAA’s all-state teams. Broomfield’s Lilly Nichols crowned herself the queen of Colorado girls pole vault when she set the record (14 feet) among all high schoolers, winning her third Class 5A crown. Naturally, she made CHSAA’s first team, and was the only local 5A girl to do so.

Fairview’s Charlotte Elliston led the way on second team, thanks to her second-place finish in pole vault (11 feet, eight inches). Boulder’s Kiki Vaughn earned runner-up honors in both the 1,600-meter run (4 minutes, 52.30 seconds) and the 800 (2:11.33) to join Elliston.
