Congratulations to Longmont Ford’s May Athletes!
The following athletes have been awarded Longmont Ford’s May Athlete of the Month:
Ryan Chacon / Frederick High School / Track and Field
Ryan has had a great month thus far in our first week of May. At the league Meet Ryan competed in four events and was all conference in three of them, as he set new school records in the three events as well. This is an amazing feet, but it is even more impressive when you take in to account that Ryan is only a sophomore. The most impressive result from the Tri-Valley Conference meet was the 4x 400m team dropping almost 4 seconds in the events and beating Mead at the Championship at the finish Line. When Ryan took the baton, he was 20meters behind, and still 10 plus behind as he came off the final corner. Ryans finish was class sick as he over took the number 4 runner from Mead in the last meter or two. In doing so our 4 x 400 team won the conference championship, and broke the Tri-Valley Meet record, he did this after winning the 400m and placing second in the 200m earlier in the day. This sophomore we like to call the “”flying Stick”” has continued to improve almost all of his times in the meets the last four weeks and is looking forward to running at state in multiple events next week. The previous weekend Ryan place 6th in the 100, 2nd in the 400m and Won the 200m at the Weld County Championships in Greeley.” New School Record in the 200m, 400m and finally in the 4×400.
