See Page 3 By Pattye Volz Its been a fantastic week, said Cheyenne Mountain High School (CMHS) athletic director and assis- tant principal Kris Roberts. Fantastic is that three more Chey- enne teams brought home state cham- pionship trophies, right on the heels of last weeks girls tennis title. Wednesday night, the CMHS girls soccer team won their sixth overall and third straight Colorado 4A title by beating Lewis Palmer High School 2-1 in penalty kicks at Dicks Sport- ing Goods Park in Denver. Senior Hannah Gerdin made the teams lone regulation goal near the end of the first half and Lewis Palmer tied it up late in the second half. After overtime play, it took six penalty kicks before the Indians came out on top, giving them the honor of being the only team in the state to ever win three girls soccer titles in a row. The team got a slow start this season, losing five of its first seven games, but then rallied, ending with a 14-5-1 record and another large trophy. Just the day before, on Tuesday, it was the girls golf team which came home victorious from two days of competing at River Valley Ranch in Carbondale, Colo. During that last long day with two lightning delays, senior Kylee Sullivan led the Indians to their third consecutive 4A title. The team finished five strokes ahead of Colorado Academy and Sullivan placed second individually. It was a pretty cool way to end a career, said coach Bill Paulson who is retiring after 35 years with Chey- enne Mountain. Hes coached Sulli- van for four years and this is the way those two wanted this chapter to end. CMHS has a total of three state girls golf titles, this streak that started in 2013. It means a lot, said Paulson, noting the tournament was very close. Its a lot of pressure. Everybody is looking at you, he said of being the defending champions in such a solo-focused sport. Sullivans three teammates had never been in a state tournament before. It was impres- sive for them to play as well as they did for the first time, Paulson said. Three days earlier, Cheyenne Mountains boys swim team brought home their first state 4A title since 2002.

Tuesday afternoon the City of Colorado Springs announced the closure of several area trails and of the entire Red Rock Canyon Open Space which includes the areas known as Section 16 and White Acres. I closed the park due to the extremely wet and saturated conditions, said park opera- tions and development manager Kurt Schroeder Wednesday morning, explaining that the Highway 24 entrance to the park became impassable when water breached a dam in Sand Canyon causing considerable damage. Schroeder said work is under way to clean up and repair that area and others but as of the Editions publication time he expected the open space to remain closed through Memorial Day weekend and was unsure of when it could open back up. We sure would like things to begin to dry out but the weather forecast is not helping in that area, said Schroeder. Other weather-related city trail closures as of Thursday morning included: Midland Trail between 26th Street and Ridge Road Pikes Peak Greenway Trail between Polk Street and Trem- ont Street Foot Hills Trail within Garden of the Gods between Gateway Road and the Navigators Pikes Peak Greenway Trail between Nevada Avenue and El Pomar Youth Sports Park City park officials are asking trail users to heed the closures and exercise caution for per- sonal safety and for protection of the trails which can be further damaged when used during wet conditions.

Meeting about Equestrian Skills Project in Bear Creek Park El Paso County Parks is hosting a community meeting at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 27 at the Bear Creek Nature Center, 245 Bear Creek Road to discuss plans for an equestrian skills course within Bear Creek Regional Park. The course planned for the east side of the park near Eighth Street was included in the already-ap- proved master plan for the county park. A Friends group is planning to help develop the course designed to build skills for safely riding trails. Input Wanted for New County Commissioner Districts El Paso Countys commissioner district boundaries must change to meet the legal requirement of having relatively equal population within each of the five districts. With this in mind, three different options for the reapportionment have been proposed and public input is being accepted on these options through June 11. The proposed options are available at All public comment should be forwarded to Ryan Parsell at RyanParsell@ or 520-7322.
