Sarah Holbrook, Broomfield gymnastics: Holbrook came agonizingly close to a repeat in the beam apparatus at the Class 5A state meet Saturday, essentially finishing second place by tiebreaker. She scored a 9.8 to tie with Pomona’s Kelsey Boychuk, but Boychuk’s average judge scores were a tad higher. On Friday, Holbrook helped the Eagles finish second as a team, too.

Danny Richards, Fairview soccer: Last week may have had a familiar look for Richards and the Knights with a pair of Front Range League opponents on the schedule, however there was much more at stake and the FHS goalkeeper met the challenge to help get his team to Wednesday’s 5A semifinals. He recorded six saves against Rocky Mountain and then bested that with eight saves against Boulder, both 2-0 shutouts.
