Steve Disbrow couldn’t have picked a more familiar spot in which to make a fresh start.

Disbrow, who was relieved of his duties as Boulder’s baseball coach under tense circumstances a month ago, is returning to his roots while resuming his coaching career. Disbrow has accepted an assistant coach position at his alma mater, Manhattan (Kan.) High School.

“It all happened very quickly,” Disbrow said. “We’ll be moving over the next couple of weeks. I’m definitely excited to go back home.”

Disbrow will remain the executive director for Diamond Baseball of Boulder, handling many of the organization’s off-field responsibilities, through the Boulder National Invitation Tournament in mid-July. After that Disbrow will head home, where he will serve as a full-time physical education teacher at nearby Eisenhower Middle School while working with the Manhattan High baseball team.

The Manhattan varsity still is coached by the man Disbrow once played for, Don Hess.

“I’ll still be in the loop through July,” said Disbrow, who led the Panthers for eight seasons. “I’m feeling fortunate this worked out.”

 

WORLD TRAVELER

Fairview soccer player Nick Porter has been invited to train with a Swedish club, BK Forward, from July 25-31. Afterward, Porter will remain in Sweden, as he was selected by AX Soccer Tours to play for the U.S. team in an international showcase hosted by BK Forward on Aug. 1-4.

Slated to be a junior for the Knights this fall, Porter already is logging a lot of international miles after participating in a similar overseas showcase last summer in Denmark.

 

IN THE GROOVE

One week after winning the CWGA Junior Stroke Play Championship, recent Fairview graduate Kelly Moran still is displaying a hot hand on the links. Moran ended the opening round of the CWGA Stroke Play finals on Wednesday in a share for first-place atop the leader board after firing a 1-over par 72 at The Ranch Country Club. Recent Broomfield alum Taylor Dorans is tied for second after shooting a 74.
