Meet Trevor von Boeck: DI/DII Mountain Biking Varsity State Boys Champion
Trevor Racing
Congratulations to senior Trevor von Boeck, who represented MacLaren in the Colorado High School Cycling League. On October 19, 2014, he finished 3rd in the state championship race and won the overall series, becoming the Colorado Division I/Division II varsity boys state champion. The day before, he was given the Exceptional Student Athlete Award for student athletes who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, sportsmanship, academic performance and volunteerism in their team, school and community. This recognition comes after four years of hard training and dedication. Well done, Trevor! Thank you for representing MacLaren so well!
Trevor was honored at our first Fall Athletics Assembly on October 22nd. The rest of the event was spent honoring the five MacLaren soccer teams: the 6th Grade Boys, 7th & 8th Grade Boys, and the three U16 Girls soccer teams. In addition to the Most Improved and Most Valuable Player awards, one student from each team was given the MacLaren award, which honors the player who demonstrates good sportsmanship, is extremely coachable, and who actively works to build up the culture of the team. Andrew Swanson, a member of our faculty who is helping lead our Athletics athletics program, said that, “the coaches were so proud of how the players responded to every direction and how they grew as MacLaren athletes. We are all looking forward to the future of our sports program as so many young men and women grow into stellar athletes.”

As a new charter school in Colorado Springs, we know that athletics is something we need to build from the ground, up. This Assembly helped to publicly honor and spotlight our sports teams. We hope for continued growth and support, especially in the way of volunteer coaching and student membership. A big thank you to all coaches this season: Eric Hall, John Brophy, Laura Shorey, Jackie Lon, Hannah Caneff, Sean White, Rob Shorey, Ashley Terradez, Andrew Swanson, Carlos Marquez, and student-coaches Niko Tafoya and Willem Van Dyk.
