Ila Katechis, Niwot gymnastics: After helping the Cougars to a Class 4A team title on Friday, Katechis had more than enough skill to keep her personal goals intact in Saturday’s individual finals at the state meet. She scored a 9.6 on beam and 9.45 on vault, both which were gold-medal performances.

Nathan DeWitte, Longmont football: The Trojans defense has simply been fierce all season, and DeWitte was a one-man wrecking crew against Thompson Valley in helping LHS finish a 10-0 regular season. The junior recorded three of Longmont’s 10 sacks against the Eagles, a big part of a 35-0 shutout win.
