SATURDAY’S RE-1J TRACK MEET POSTPONED

With the forecast calling for a high probability of precipitation on Saturday, the annual RE-1J track meet featuring most of the St. Vrain Valley School District schools has been postponed indefinitely.

The meet, which is run at Longmont High’s Everly-Montgomery Field, could be rescheduled later this spring, but a decision to do so won’t be made until later in the season.

With spring sports getting under way this week, the track meet’s postponement is the only known weather-related havoc caused so far for Saturday’s events.

SHOW ROSTERS TO BE ANNOUNCED

Rosters for The Show Colorado high school basketball all-star game will be released at 12:30 p.m. Monday at a press conference at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

The top 20 boys and 20 girls will be split into teams for the April 6 event. The girls game is at 1:30 p.m. that day at the Pepsi Center, while the boys game follows at 3 p.m.

MORSE NAMED RMAC PLAYER OF YEAR

Already the owner of a remarkable basketball career at Metro State College of Denver, Fairview graduate Jonathan Morse added another impressive accolade this week.

Morse topped the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference first team all-league selections by being named the RMAC Player of the Year. Morse is averaging 14.1 points a game for the Roadrunners while ranking third in the RMAC with an average of 8.7 rebounds. Morse, who led Metro to its first regular season RMAC crown since 2009, already is the program’s all-time leading rebounder.

NEXT-LEVEL HONORS

— Morse wasn’t the only area product earning RMAC accolades. His former Fairview teammate, Travis Shepherd of Western State, was named to the All-RMAC third team after averaging 11.4 points a game for the Mountaineers. Fort Lewis’ Nick Tomsick, who spent three years at Broomfield before transferring to Arizona for his senior season, was named to the All-RMAC second team.

— On the women’s side of the RMAC honors, three local products made the list. Metro State’s Emily Wood, who led Monarch to a state runner-up finish her senior year, was named to the second team along with Colorado School of Mines’ Taylor Helbig, who played a major role in Holy Family’s string of four straight state titles. University of Colorado-Colorado Springs’ Lauren Wolfinger, meanwhile, earned third team honors. Wolfinger helped Silver Creek to a state-runner-up finish in 2008.

— Former Longmont swimming standout Connor Dwyer, a Skyline High grad, capped off his first college season with Western Kentucky by swimming personal bests in the 100 and 200-yard breaststroke and the 200 IM at the Conference USA championships. Dwyer placed third in the 100 breast, fourth in the 200 and eighth in the IM.
