Local high school student athletes honored


The Denver Post published its all-state selections on Sunday and four Moffat County High School athletes were named among the state's elite.

Senior Lindsey Scott, senior Charlotte Steele, senior Chris Field and junior Jerod Estey have been named all-state by the newspaper in recognition of their 2002 spring sport performances.

In baseball, Estey was not only named first team all-state, but also 4A Player of the Year.

"That was a definite shock," Estey said. "I knew I had a slight chance, but I didn't think I'd actually get it. It's a great honor."

Estey finished the season hitting .522, with eight home runs and 25 RBI. On the mound, Estey went 4-3, with one save and a 2.41 ERA.

Chris Field was named honorable mention all-state after he finished the baseball season with a .355 batting average, with two home runs and twelve RBIs. Field also won five games as a pitcher with a 3.34 ERA.

Golfer Lindsey Scott took home first team all-state honors after a fifth-place finish at the 4A girls golf state tournament.

"Lindsey has been a three-year letterman and qualified for the state tournament the last three years," said Moffat County High School co-head girls golf coach Chuck Cobb.

"And the past three years, she has placed in the top 10 in the state.

"She has been a great asset to this team. She has striven to do her best and worked very hard in the off season. She did what it took, no doubt about that."

Charlotte Steele was named

honorable mention all-state after performances in the 800-meter event.

"She runs with tremendous heart," said Moffat County Athletic Director Jim Loughran. "You have to see her run to understand. She is someone who gives all she has when she runs each race."
