Senior Spotlight #6 Jacob through Orion

Jacob Otero

 

After high school Jacob plans on attending UCCS. He is planning on studying mathematics or economics. He wants to continue running but to also have fun with it by entering in various races. 

Jacob’s advice to the younger runners is “The last two years have given me a new found passion for running and made me realize all the benefits of consistency and determination. Stay focused during this time and you will improve greatly and be prepared for the next season.” 

 Nobody is missing this track season more than Jacob. He joined the team only a year ago. In just a year Jacob put in the work and wow did he get fast. He set PR’s in a pre-scrimmage workout, just after an injury following a great half marathon race. Jacob was primed for a great track season, but his lifelong racing attitude will serve him best. Jacob’s energic rally cheers and fun-loving attitude that percolated to his teammates will be missed.

Senior Spotlight #5

Pictures won't post today, but here are the write ups for each athlete.  The full Senior Spotlight document with pictures is located under the files tab on this website. 

Noah Elliott

After High School, Noah plans on earning a degree in communications and business marketing so he can hopefully work as a photographer for North face or National Geographic, or travel the world for non-profits taking pictures for them. 

“If I was to give words of advice to the underclassmen or incoming freshman would be two things. The first is to just have fun. There is time to be serious and there is time for fun. More times than not its time for fun. You can't always take everything so seriously otherwise you want to get the results you want to see because you become very hard on yourself and beat yourself up over the littlest things. Just have fun with it, it's just high school sports. The second would be to make friends, and make good friends because the relationships you make here will last a lifetime. “

“Hey coach what are we doing today?” Noah’s playful fun-loving attitude comes through in that daily question. He was a leader of the distance team, not only in his speed but in the serious way he attacked workouts. He always had solid feedback from each workout we did that helped the team get better. Noah also raced hard! Which was on display when he puked hard too. Even though he narrowly missed qualifying for state in cross country, I will never forget the toughness of his 2019 regionals race, such an exciting race to watch.

 

 

 

Isaiah Escalante-Garcia

Zay, holds two school records, the 4x1 and the 4x2.  2020 was the year he was going to break the 400 record.  Doubtless to say he was on track to break that record.  Zay’s work ethic was never more evident than in 2019 at state, when he was sick with a severe cold, but insisted on competing in all four events at state.  He ended up running 7 races in three days.  Two were on the school record 4x1 and 4x2 teams where they finished 2nd and 4th respectively.  Another was his third-place finish in the 400. Zay gave everything he had for his team.

Roberto Lopez

 

Roberto is a late bloomer as a thrower.  He tested the waters two years ago.  Last year he became a stable thrower with consistent throws.  By the end of the year he was getting into a rhythm which we expect to carry him this year to new heights.  Roberto was always there to assist the coaches and his teammates.  Roberto will be missed next year.  We wish him luck with his future aspirations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Donte Marsh

Donte Marsh is Doherty’s 2019 5A CSML High Jump and Long Jump Champion, he also placed 3rd at the 2019 CHSSA Track and Field Championships. Donte lead the state of Colorado with 6 feet, 8 inches in High Jump; heading into the 2020 season he was on pace to clear 7 feet which would have tied the school record.

Donte has a few college scholarship offers, and plans to high jump and long jump in college. He also plans to train for the U20 and U23 Championships and eventually try and make the national team.       

In the last three years Donte has embraced that “Not all athletes can be prefect in anything, even champions make mistakes, it’s called progress. Once you’ve made your progress, you make the best of it”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jaden Martinez

Jaden has been instrumental in several top five state relay top finishes as well as being a member of the school record 4x1 and second in the state last year.  His quiet yet strong no nonsense leadership is what every coach wants the young athletes to emulate.  Jaden stepped up last year when our top senior sprinter was injured.  Jaden carried us through to state to a number two finish in the 4x1.

Senior Spotlight #3 The remainder of the Girls team

Malissa Harbican

After Malissa graduates, She’s going to Brigham Young University in Provo Utah. There, she plans on majoring in Wildlife Management and minoring in the Art program.

“I encourage the underclassmen to try new sports and activities. You never know when the opportunity will be stolen from you.”

Malissa was a fierce competitor with a smile.  She put everything into her practices. Unfortunately, she worked so hard, that it took a toll on her legs.  The only way she would not finish a practice was if her coach pulled her and then Malissa would reluctantly rest her shins.  She will take this dedication with her through life and doubtlessly will reach stupendous goals.

Senior Spotlight #1: Sam Cisneros, Amanda Clark, Mikayla Cox

Samantha Cisneros

Sam is going to attend Pikes Peak Community College next year. 

“I would say for the underclassmen that don’t give up so easily, be determined and proud of yourself to do great things in life. And also to try new things and have fun with others and with track.”

Sam has been practicing with Doherty Track since her middle school days.  She has been honing her sprint skills for seven years.  Sam has become a leader during our off seasons as she is instrumental in teaching and running our warm up routine every day.  We were so excited to see how that would play out in 2020.  Sam’s specialty has been the 100 and 200.  She earns her letter this year after seven off seasons and three full seasons on the Doherty Varsity team.

Senior Celebration Friday May 1 @ 5:00pm

d

Good morning Doherty Track Family,

After competing in 37 events each meet for four years, the Doherty Track & Field team celebrates the journey each of us made and each of are making to reach that our potential.  High School sports are a safe place to learn our limits.  We are tested on those limits daily and our teammates, coaches, and parents help us reach the potential we never knew we had.  Saturdays have been the proving grounds for overcoming those obstacles.  Though the ending of this journey for our Seniors may not be what any of us expected, it is yet another hurdle which we will overcome.  Life is full of challenges, as a team, we have learned to face those challenges together and, at times, we have picked each other up.  Other times we have allowed you to work through that pain and pick yourself up.  In the end, the value of team work in order to make your dream work has been a value we have strove to reach. Our dream for you is to practice getting back up after falling, lean on someone and have someone lean on you and to have a life long love of fitness.  It's all about the body and soul.

We will celebrate our Seniors who have put so much into the last four years competing for Doherty Track & Field.

Join us tomorrow, Friday May 1, at 5:00pm for a  Senior Track & Field Celebration Organized by your Seniors on my Webex https://cssd11.webex.com/meet/robert.duensing

Spring Season Cancelled: Letter from CHSAA

Spring Sports Season Is Canceled

Spartan Track&Field.  I'm sad to announce the Spring season is canceled.  I will have more information on how we will proceed with collecting uniforms and with other questions you had at the last Webex meeting.  I will post updated information to our website here along with the date and time of our next Webex meeting.

Letter from CHSAA 

To CHSAA Member Schools:

 

We have proceeded with cautious optimism, holding on to a thread of hope that the spring season would be able to realistically resume, knowing that the health and safety of our sports communities would dictate our course of action. It was our hope to be able to create the memories because we understood what it meant to our high school communities -- especially seniors -- statewide.

 

Around the nation, more than 30 other state associations have made the difficult decision to cancel their spring season. We hoped that Colorado medical and health data would provide reassurances that we could go in a different direction. Unfortunately that will not be the case. The spring 2020 season is canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which is affecting communities across the world.

 

Since March, we have continuously sought advice from state leaders, medical professionals, educational administrators and facility managers at the state and local levels to assess the probability of conducting statewide events this spring in a manner that would uphold safety mandates and recommendations.

 

On Monday, Governor Polis announced a transition to “Safer at Home” guidelines, which included the cancellation of in-person learning for the remainder of the school year. The decisions to cancel the spring season aligns with these new guidelines.

We convened a meeting of the Sports Medicine Advisory Committee on Monday evening. The group came to a consensus, and stated: “It would be impractical and irresponsible for the Association to move forward with a spring season in the next weeks or even the summer months.”

 

It is with this information -- the inability to ensure operations under the protective guidelines, statewide accountability and public safety through all high school events -- that the Association has canceled all performances, festivals, competitions, regular season and culminating CHSAA-sanctioned spring activities and athletics for the remainder of the 2020 season, ending on

June 1. 

 

This decision, unlike the many decisions our office makes over the course of a year, has been extremely difficult because we are personally connected as former participants and officials, current parents and grandparents of graduating seniors, as well as educators and members of our high school communities.

 

The guidelines, as outlined in previous CHSAA spring moratorium communications will be in place until June 1, even if federal and state guidelines are relaxed. The Association will not sanction or conduct events after June 1. Local school districts will determine building usage during this time, and after June 1.

 

After June 1, all decisions regarding student and coach contact, virtual workouts, virtual tryouts and eighth-grade contact will be made at the local level. The CHSAA Board of Directors, Sports Medicine Advisory Committee and staff strongly recommend that federal and state guidelines are adhered to after June 1. We continue to maintain that public safety and monitoring of data points must take precedence over the desire to conduct activity and athletic practices, camps, scrimmages or events.

 

Our hats are off to the many seniors that have shown maturity and resolve as their culminating year of high school has been impacted beyond activities and athletics due to this worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. The Class of 2020 will not be forgotten. Our fingers are now crossed and our hopes are that the Association will be able to conduct a fall season with some level of normalcy. Our office will be entirely focused on contingency plans for the 2020 fall season and beyond, should they be needed.

 

We will continue to communicate as state, local and health agencies keep us informed of new public health guidelines.

 

Rhonda Blanford-Green
CHSAA Commissioner

        VIDEO UPDATE AND VIDEO OF MY DOGS RUNNING AROUND

        The coaching staff hopes all is well with you and your families.  You are in our thoughts every day.  Feel free to contact your coaches and teammates to just check in and say hi.  Seniors, send coach Duensing a picture of you competing in a Doherty track uniform.  If you don't have one, take a picture of yourself in the track uniform and send it to Coach Duensing along with 1-3 sentences on what you plan to do after high school as well as 1-3 sentences in words of wisdom to the underclassmen.

        As you may have heard, our season has been postponed through April 30.  Below is taken from a letter sent out by CHSAA giving a little insight. 

         

        Per state and local extensions on school closures and mandatory social-distancing, the CHSAA Spring Activities Moratorium has been extended to April 30th. Please know that this will be the last possible extension that will be acceptable before a definitive decision will be made on spring activities.

         

        Guidance will be given for next steps on how activity/athletic programs can operate for the remainder of the year on or until the first Sunday prior to Memorial Day should spring activities be canceled.

        Stay Well Spartans!

        I hope this communication finds you well, and that you and your families are staying safe mentally, physically and emotionally in this strangest of times. I wanted to reach out, as there is so much uncertainty with everything going on, so this email comes from a combination of sources: me, CHSAA, and our D11 AD. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions, or if you are in need of assistance in any way.

         

        As you perhaps saw yesterday, CHSAA has extended the moratorium period on athletics and activities until April 18th, which is in accordance with Governor Polis’s order to shut down public events/places for 30 days, so exactly one month from now. As you well know, everything at this point is up in the air—and is the central reason that CHSAA has not even begun the decision-making process as to what spring sports look like if we do, in fact, get to come back on April 18th. It makes sense, with an ever-changing situation such as this one—there isn’t a reason to suppose what seasons might look like when we aren’t even sure if those dates will hold fast, so please be patient with them as they are trying their best to support all of their constituents. I will continue to communicate any changes with you.

         

        That being said, coaches are still going to post workouts and communicate with your kids remotely, but I and others have communicated with them extensively that they are not to gather kids in groups, or have captains/athletes gather kids in groups—this is absolutely against what has been asked of us to this point. But I would ask, for ALL of us, engage in some sort of physical activity—as parents of athletes, you know the positive effects of exercise on the psyche, and for kids who are used to engaging in sport to go without that endorphin boost for a month is just not good, so please, engage in something with them, and our coaches posting workouts is an excellent way to do that as long as you feel safe in engaging in those workouts!

         

        Some of you have asked about spring sports refunds, so at this point, I am copying directly from an email sent to us by Chris Noll, D11 athletic director:

         

        Participation Fees:

        With us not knowing what the seasons will look like, we are going to pause on an answer with this.  There are so many different things that could happen with all of this, we are going to pause, and make a decision at a later time! 

         

        There are SO MANY questions floating right now and please know that I, along with your building level athletic director will work on those questions.  What does this do to RPI?  When we come back on April 18, are we going to jump straight back into games?  Will the season be extended?  What happens if one team plays 10 games and one plays 15 games?  Is there a chance the entire season will be cancelled?  In times like this, kids and parents look to coaches and our approach needs to be simple.  Everyone needs to take a deep breath and relax.  Questions will be answered in due time.  We need to encourage our families to be safe!  Relax…

         

        For my senior athletes and parents:  I am so disappointed for you—I can’t empathize…I’ve never been in a situation when I was healthy enough and ready to compete when I haven’t been able to, and this is so unfortunate.  I guess we can rest in the thought that what is supposed to happen will happen, but that doesn’t make it any easier for those of you who were anxiously waiting to participate in your final senior season.  For that, I am so sorry. And even as I say that, encourage yourself and your kids to be leaders—the younger athletes on your teams will respond how you respond, and you consistently have shown yourselves to be capable of handling far more than others give you credit for.  Hold your heads high, stay positive, and understand that we see you and know what you are dealing with, and we appreciate you entirely. 

         

        Thanks all; I appreciate all of you.  Stay safe, exercise, enjoy time with your kiddos, patronize small business if you can, and please let us know if you need anything!

         

        Respecfully,

        Guidelines to Keeping Up With Workouts

        Guidelines to Keeping Up with Workouts

        Spartan Harriers, 

        When our home, school, exercise, and social routines are dramatically changed by national emergency, we find ourselves reassessing our priorities.  Each of us will prioritize differently.  Please, take some time to set aside everyone pulling at you and assess your own priorities. Your family is your guide.

        Wherever track fits into your priority list is fine with your coaches.  The suggested workouts we are posting, are just that.  There are set up to keep you in tip top track shape.  You need to clear your workouts with your parents or guardians, as they know best how to keep you safe and healthy.  Communicate with your coaches, but don't feel it is required.  We care about you and want to hear from you to know you are well. We know that intelligent exercise is important to the whole health of the athlete. 

        I've given you a link to an article in Runners World on guidelines to follow when running during this pandemic.   

        RUNNERS WORLD ARTICLE ON RUNNING DURING PANDEMIC

        Stay well and we will see you when this passes.

        Important CHSAA COVID-19 Update

         

        Aurora, CO – The Colorado High School Activities Association, following the most recent recommendation of state and federal health officials, has announced changes in the spring sports and activities schedules.

         

        “In light of Governor Jared Polis’ announcement Monday (March 16) afternoon where new restrictions were mandated to slow the advance of the COVID-19 virus narrowing the minimum standards for public gatherings, we are announcing that the Association will follow the guidelines that went into effect at 8:00 a.m. today and will remain in effect for 30 days,” CHSAA Commissioner Rhonda Blanford-Green said. “This media and school advisory is to keep the membership apprised of the latest decisions from the CHSAA office.”

         

        These updates include:

         

        • The Spring Sports moratorium is extended through April 18. CHSAA encourages schools to set stricter standards on student gatherings outside of the high school.
        • All CHSAA Music Events have been cancelled for 2020.
        • The CHSAA Hall of Fame, scheduled for April 14, has been cancelled.
        • The CHSAA Legislative Council meeting, scheduled for April 15, has been postponed pending changes in the public gathering restrictions.
        • The State Speech Tournament and Student Leadership Advisor U have been postponed until later in the spring pending changes in the public gathering restrictions.
        • The CHSAA office will remain closed until March 30, with staff working remotely from home.

         

        The CHSAA will recognize individual participants from the CHSAA State Basketball Championships with a memento in the coming weeks to recognize their leadership and resolve during that week.

         

        National and state decisions related to the COVID-19 virus are changing daily, even hourly, so new updates will be posted on CHSAANow.com and communicated via email to schools and media.
