JENESSA BURKE


HIGHLANDS RANCH  GIRLS' BASKETBALL


During last year's Class 5A state title game against Regis Jesuit, Burke hit the go-ahead 3-pointer late in the game to propel Highlands Ranch to the win and a state crown. During a game on Jan. 16, Regis must have felt déjà vu. With the seconds ticking down on the regular season contest between the two teams, Burke again came up big with a 3-pointer with 28 seconds left to give her Falcons a 56-53 win.



PHILLIP GROUT


NORTHGLENN  WRESTLING


A state champion beat a state champion at the prestigious Arvada West Invitational on Jan. 17. Competing against Eric Wilson of Grandview, Grout earned the 119-pound tournament title with an 11-6 victory, claiming the meet's MVP honor in the process. The senior won his state title in 2007, while Wilson claimed the state championship in 2008, beating Grout in overtime.
