Payten Irwin – Swimming – Erie HS
Payten is a senior who has competed all four years in high school swimming. As you can see by her list of swimming accomplishments, it is admirable that she is so committed to her high school program. We are competing this weekend in CHSAA 3A State Championship where I am guessing she will earn another state title. Thank you for considering Payten.
Here are a list of Paytens qualifications:
2019 3A State Champion 50 Free
2019 3A State Champion 100 Fly (55.58 would have made her a state champion at 4A as well)
2018 Two State Records CUDA
2018 Junior National Team
2017 Junior National Team
State Quals in all events except for diving and 100 back
2019 Longs Peak League Champion 200IM
2018 Northern League Champion 50 Free
2018 Northern League Champion 100 Fly
Competed in 10 high school meets this season which demonstrates her commitment to her high school team!
Payten will continue her swimming career at Washington State University in the fall of 2020. She is always willing to swim ANYTHING and is always happy to be around (even at 5:30 am practices). She is humble, genuine and 100% a team player.
Jordynn Lee – Basketball – Longmont HS
Jordynn is a Senior Captain who demonstrates the work ethic you hope all athletes will strive for. In the 7 games over the past month, she has averaged 12 points, 10 Rebounds, and 2 Steals a game while shooting 47% from the field.
Alexis Backer – Basketball – Frederick HS
Alexis is a hard worker both on and off the court. She is a great team member and works hard at obtaining good grades in her classes.
Izzy Schneider – Swimming – Frederick HS
Izzy always has a great attitude at every practice, even during the early mornings. Izzy always give a 110% every time she competes and never gives up. Many of Izzy’s team mates have told her, that she’s their motivation, swim hero and they want to be like her. Izzy has never given up in a challenge, when it comes to swimming. Izzy was constantly swimming the 500 yard free style, which she qualified for state in multiple times.
At every practice Izzy always has a great time, and is a positive influence for her team mates. Izzy is constantly helping others with their techniques and being a bubbly person. Izzy always has a great time at meets, and practices, but when it’s time to get serious, she gets serious.
