Recap: Pat Patten Invitational

The Invitational season concluded at the Pat Patten Invitational at Viele Lake in Boulder, adjacent to Coach Kohuth’s alma mater, Fairview High School. The views of the Flatirons on Saturday were better than fair, as were many of Denver East’s performances on the rolling, multi-surface course, which was slick and muddy in places following the thunderstorms from the day before. 

All of East’s teams have been somewhat depleted due to apparent viral illnesses the last couple of weeks, none more so than the Boys Varsity who have also run the last two weeks without their usual low stick, Corbin Hobert, who has been out with a stress fracture. East underclassmen Jonas Scudamore and Henry Bennett seem to have dodged the worst of whatever virus has plagued the team thus far, as sophomore Scudamore led the Angels for the second consecutive week with his 20th place 16:38 finish and freshman Bennett had one of his best races of the season in 16:57 for 34th place. Senior Quinn Higgins held on for 39th in 17:04, while his classmate Ben Hopper, looking stronger every week, ran 18:13 for 86th. Junior Kai Luna finished the scoring for the Angels with his 95th place finish in 18:30. Seniors Charlie Keglovitz (126th, 19:53) and Garrett Johnson (129th, 20:12) finished in the 6 and 7 spots for the Angels, who settled for an 11th place team finish. 

Sophomore Rosie Mucharsky looks to be rounding into strong post-season form as she moved up from 6th place midway in the race to a 3rd place finish in 19:04. Ninth grader Scout Chomas seems to improve week to week, finishing 39th overall Saturday in 20:46, followed by juniors Sophia Shiroff (45th, 20:52) and Sasha Bull (72nd, 21:46). Another ninth grader exceeding expectations, Mary Clare Nussbaum, was right on Sasha’s heels with her 73rd place, 21:46 performance. Sophomore Lila Cypers has quietly put together a really solid and consistent season for the Angels, at Pat Patten finishing 86th in 22:02. Seniors Evelyn Higgins (94th, 22:12) and Helen Miller (100th, 22:19) were just a few strides back of Lila. Despite missing two of their usual top-7, the Varsity Girls managed a 7th place finish.

The youth of the Angels continued to impress in the Boys JV race. Sophomore Ben Brown led the team with his 19:05 run for 32nd place. Ninth grader Abraham Morginsky continues to show substantial potential, finishing 39th in 19:25. Junior Finn Egan was 47th in 19:47, followed by a pair of additional freshmen, Isaiah Springer (48th, 19:49) and Kyle Kojima (56th, 20:01). These performances added up to a 6th place team finish for the Angel JV Boys.

The depth of the JV Girls team has made them the most resilient, as they raced to a 4th place team finish. Junior Avery Ash led the way for the JV girls with her 14th place finish in 22:12. Senior Bri O’Meara and ninth grader Meara McBride were within a close distance of Ash the whole way, eventually finishing 16th and 17th in 22:27 and 22:34 respectively. More Angel ninth graders were in pursuit of that pack, with Quinn Dunkin finishing 28th in 23:08 and Daniela Maldonado-Ramos finishing 50th in 24:06. Senior Eleanor Goldstein stayed close to Maldonado-Ramos with her 55th place 24:20 run. 

Having closed out the Invitational season, the Angels look ahead to the Championship season, grateful for a few extra days to heal before the DPS League Championships on Weds Oct 12. The Invitational season has shown that Denver East is ready to achieve all of its Championship season goals once firing again on all cylinders. 

Chipotle Fundraiser on Monday 10/3

Tomorrow night is our Chipotle Fundraiser! 33% of purchases made between 4:00pm-8:00pm at the 2500 E Colfax Ave, Denver, CO (Colfax & Columbine) Chipotle will go to the time if you show the cashier this email/post.

Runners: feel free to get your Chipotle order after practice on Monday and bring it to our team picnic on the sunken lawn on the south side of the East HS building. If Chipotle is cost prohibitive, but you want to picnic with your team, please see either Coach Kohuth or Coach Spano for assistance. No one should miss the picnic due to expense.

Parents, family, alumni and East XC supporters: please show this email to a cashier to get your dinner and support the team.

Nike Southwest Regional Championship 2022

The Nike Southwest Region Championship is on Saturday, November 19, at the Coyote Run Golf Course in Mesa, Arizona. Denver East will enter Girls and Boys Teams (we compete as a club, not as a school) and athletes may also race individually. This has been a fun way to extend the cross country season past state meet. Coaches Kohuth and Scudamore will continue to organize practices for those competing. Athletes and their families arrange their own travel plans; however, we will try to coordinate by communicating which hotels families and athletes have booked as well as trying to schedule a team dinner the night prior to the meet. For families considering sending their athlete without a parent or guardian, we will share which families are traveling to Arizona so that you may consider coordinating your student’s travel plans. Information on the meet is available on the attached link. Please do not register for the meet before discussing with Coach Kohuth whether you plan to compete as part of Denver East’s entry – we need to make those entries together. There is a course walk-through from 4pm to 5pm on Friday, November 18. All races and awards should be completed by 12:30pm on Saturday. Please reach out to Coach Kohuth or Coach Scudamore if you have any questions.
