Pine Creek coach Max Oliver may have an interesting dilemma on his hands when state track and field rolls around in May.

What to do with Heide Baron, a razor-quick junior, a steadfast piece to her team’s sprint relays and an emerging power in the individual sprinting events.

On Saturday, the polite and low-key speedster handily won the 100-, 200- and 400-meter events and led Pine Creek to a third-place finish at the Pueblo Centennial Invitational.

In the past year, Trenton Stringari has been haunted by 0.03 of a second. It was that impossibly short amount of time that separated the Cañon City senior from first place in the 400 hurdles at the 2013 National Junior Olympic Championships.

Motivated by those nagging three-hundredths, Stringari travels an hour three times a week from Cañon City to Colorado Springs to train with the Speed Track & Field club team and he’s hoping his time spent training and commuting will pay off. He’s one of 11 Speed T&F athletes who will be making the trip to Houston to compete at the National Junior Olympic Championships that runs Monday-July 27.

Simon Hayes, McKenzie Howie and Emma Kidd represent the full spectrum of high school track athletes, and all three are set to compete in the Olympics next week.

OK, not those Olympics. The flight for these athletes will stop for the National Junior Olympic Championships in Baltimore, not London, but the stakes are nonetheless high.

The three are among 14 from the Speed Track and Field club team and several others from around the city and state who will be participating in the massive nationwide meet that runs July 23-29 at Morgan State.

Speed Track and Field’s trip to the USA Track and Field National Junior Olympic Track and Field Championships isn’t about coach Charmas Lee, as he’ll tell you.

He mostly clams up when asked if this meet, in Wichita, Kan., next Tuesday to Sunday, has any special meaning to him. It is likely his last trip to outdoor nationals as the Colorado Springs club’s coach. After 20 years doing pretty much everything for Speed Track and Field, he’s planning to scale back his responsibilities next season.
