Boys Swim 2024

Congratulations to our Boys Swim team for qualifying for 4A CHSAA State after narrowly missing out last season. Prelims were held at Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center (VMAC) on Thursday, May 9, 2024. The team was sent off with a school-wide clapout on their way to VMAC.

Here are the events that qualified for State:

50 Free - Evan Marcantonio

100 Free - Henry Thomas

200 Free Relay - Lincoln Dammes, Alex Regalado Flores, Evan Marcantonio, Henry Thomas

Unfortunately, our prelim times on Thursday did not qualify for finals on Friday, May 10. We are so proud of our team though. Qualifying for State is a HUGE accomplishment and far surpassed expectations for the season. Big thanks to Coach Kassi and Coach Russ for preparing them throughout the season!

Girls Golf 2024

It's safe to say that Girls Golf is back in Estes Park! As the school year winds down, so does the Girls Golf season. The team started in late February with six golfers, all of whom had never played golf before. They braved many cold, windy, snowy days to practice and learn the game. The perseverance paid off as the team finished 3rd at the Patriot League JV Championship in Sterling last Friday.

I am proud of the girls and am impressed by their progress. I hope to see many of them on the team again next year,” said Coach Rische.

We hope to continue to grow the sport for girls in Estes Park and build off of this season. Please reach out to Coach Tim Rische at Tim_Rische@psdr3.k12.co.us if you are interested in learning more about Girls Golf in Estes Park.

Big thanks to Coach Tim Rische for reestablishing Girls Golf this season. Also, thank you to Austin Logan and Aaron Tuley from the Estes Park Golf Course for their support of the program this season.

Sportsmanship Statement

Good Sportsmanship is the attitude and behavior that exemplifies positive support for the interscholastic athletic program, as well as for the individuals who participate in the program. EPSD Athletic Programs participants at all levels are expected to demonstrate qualities that are characterized by fair play, integrity, ethical behavior and respect. Emphasizing and improving the sportsmanship of our student-athletes, coaches, parents and staff is one of our highest priorities. Each coach, student, parent, and staff member has a role and responsibility to model and teach good sportsmanship while keeping in mind that athletic participation is a learning experience for the student and the programs are an extension of the educational system offered within our school district.

Sportsmanship Guidelines-

  • Display pride and respect in your programs at all times.
  • Maintain enthusiasm and composure.
  • Positively support and respect the participants, coaches, and officials.
  • Exercise good judgment in cheering for outstanding performance, not against opponents or to ridicule an error made by those on the field.
  • Follow the cheerleaders in positive cheers to show support for the participants.
  • Respect decisions made by contest officials.
  • Understand that a ticket represents a privilege to observe and positively support amateur athletes.
  • Encourage surrounding fans to display only positive sportsmanlike conduct.
  • Show respect and concern for an injured player, regardless of team.
