GIRLS ON THE RUN 5K — NOV. 14

Nearly 700 young students and 200 family members came to Frisco last Saturday for the town’s first-annual Girls on the Run 5K. The event, a noncompetitive fun run held on the Frisco recpath, was the finale of a 10-week curriculum that focuses on fitness, wellness, diet and more. Every girl who came to Frisco finished the race on Main Street before ending the afternoon with music, food and plenty of high-fives.

GOTR is a national nonprofit that organizes educational and fitness events for thousands of girls in elementary and middle school. The organization has grown by leaps and bounds since it was launched in 1996, including the introduction of a local program five years ago. It now boasts nearly 200 participants at all local elementary schools and Summit Middle School.

At the Frisco event, girls and their families came from dozens of schools across the Central Rocky Mountains, including Summit, Eagle, Park and Chaffee counties. The program is expected to grow more with fall and spring curriculum.

BRECK BUCKS VS. GLACIER YETIS

The Breckenridge Bucks traveled to Grand Junction last Friday and Saturday, Nov. 13-14 to take on the Glacier Yetis (1-13).

The Yetis, hungry to climb out of last place in the Rocky Mountain Junior Hockey League, played the Bucks extremely tough over the weekend, even holding the lead in the third period of Friday’s game before Anthony Flores tied the score and forced overtime. The Bucks emerged victorious with a goal from newcomer Michael Klintworth, who claimed his second of the contest to give the Bucks a 5-4 win.

On Saturday, the bounces went a bit more in the Bucks favor as they dispatched the Yetis 5-2. The Breck crew had strong performances in the first and second period to hold a commanding 4-0 lead heading into the third. The Yetis found the net twice late in the game but still came up short.

The Bucks now sit at third place in the league with a 10-4 record. The team is comfortably ahead of the fourth-place Rampage (4-10) and only four points behind Aspen (12-2) and Pikes Peak (12-2) in a tie for first. The Bucks travel to Pikes Peak home ice Nov. 20-21 with the hopes of closing that gap with the Miners.

The next Bucks homestand is Thanksgiving weekend, Nov. 27-28 against the Colorado Thunderbirds (3-11). Games begin at 7:50 p.m. — WREN ARBUTHNOT
