Boulder to Ferguson protesters

No Charges for Boulder Killer Cops


As to be expected Boulder DA Stan Garnett did not bring charges against the two Boulder Police officers involved in the shooting of CU student Sam Forgy. Garnett and Boulder police have been silent since the night of the shooting in July. This is usually an indication that the DA will back the Police.

Forgys mother was in shock over the announcement and disappointed.  Garnett did reveal that an assault team of 4 officers entered the apartment complex where Forgy was standing naked on a balcony , screaming, high on acid holding a hammer. The officer had shields and enough power to overwhelm Forgy but decided instead to shoot him dead.

Sam Forgy shot dead by Boulder police

A high level police official told Boulder Channel 1 News “that the officer was new, inexperienced  and he panicked.”

A prominent Boulder Criminal defense lawyer to us, that ” it is typical for the DA to back the police officers in his jurisdiction. He has to work with them. He has to give them the benefit of the doubt. He hopes no one will call him out  on it. If he charged the officers , his career as DA and his political career would be over. This was a political decision not a moral one ”

A local police chief told us; ” police commit a lot of bad shootings. This is one and it should not be swept under the rug… but it has been.”

Another lawyer told us…. “This is a classic wrongful death case “… The family could sue the city of Boulder, the county, the police officers and the DA.  This is a high dollar case too. In the millions of dollars.  The attorneys will sue in civil court and the truth about what happened that night will come out. The lawyers will put the officers and the DA on the stand. It won’t be pretty. I would say the city will have to settle this for 5 to 15 million dollars before it goes to court.” The city and county do not want a case like this in court.”

Boulder Channel 1 news has learned “that a team of high profile attorneys and investigators have been working on this case at the behest of the family since the day after the shooting.”

Pac-12 Track and Field Championship 1

Pac-12 Track Field Starts On Saturday



Pac_12_logoThe 2014 Pac-12 Track and Field Championship will start on Saturday, May 10, for the heptathlon and decathlon participants, and the University of Colorado is sending six athletes to compete.

WSU is hosting the championships at the Mooberry Track & Field Complex in Pullman, Wash. Sophomores Brittany Lewis and Abrianna Torres and freshmen Ewelina Pena and Mariah Slack will compete in the heptathlon and seniors Jason DeWitt and Brock Emory will compete in the decathlon.

Torres is currently ranked third in the conference heading into this weekend’s competition with 5,241 points. A few weeks ago, she competed in the Mt. SAC Invitational Elite section and finished seventeenth overall. Last year at the Pac-12 Championships, Torres earned a third-place finish and ended competition with a personal best 5,357 points. With the score, she moved up to sixth on CU’s all-time performance heptathlon list.

Pena is ranked tenth in the conference with 4,266 points and Slack is right behind her in the eleventh spot with 4,087 points. Lewis closes the rankings out in twelfth as she did not finish her last heptathlon at Mt. SAC.

Dewitt sits in ninth in the conference with 6,724 and Emory is ranked tenth with 6,663. The two seniors and training partners have had similar marks throughout the season and look to have a strong showing In Pullman. This is Brock’s second year at the Pac-12 meet, and he is looking to improve from his eighth place finish. DeWitt is joining for the first time and hopes to make a splash in his debut.

This weekend’s action will conclude on Sunday, May 11. The rest of the championship will be on May 17-18, also in Pullman.

Ben Saarel 1

How Fast Is CUs Saarel?



Ben Saarel 2Saarel, of Park City, Utah, arrived in Boulder already in the passing lane.

An engineering physics major with an interest (bet on it not being mild) in chemistry, he earned a 4.0 GPA in his first semester. And that, said Wetmore, was because “you can’t get a 5.0 . . . he finishes practices, takes his shoes off and goes to the library.”

When the Buffs leave the state for meets, as some will do this weekend for competitions in Austin, Texas and Stanford, Calif., Wetmore says Saarel “studies on the bus to the airport, studies at the airport and studies on the airplane. He’s a willing worker when he gets to practice and will do anything we ask of him. If he’s ever tired he doesn’t show it. He’s intense in practice, intense about his school work. I’d like to find a way for him to get a 3.999 (GPA) and relax a little, gear it down a little more.”

Saarel didn’t start running until he was a high school freshman, and that came at the urging of his sister, Emma, now a runner at Swarthmore (Pa.) College. After starting in cross country, he branched out to track, and in a short time reached a comfort level in both.

After winning the Utah State Class 3A cross country championship in the second-fastest time (14:56.7) ever run on the course, he was named the 2012 Gatorade Utah Cross Country Runner of the Year. Other accomplishments that year included first place at the Foot Locker West Regional and a second-place finish at the Nike Cross Nationals Southwest Regional championship. In track as a senior, he also won Utah state titles, with record times in the 800 (1:51.13) and the 1,600 meters (4:07.95).

Like all else he attempts, Saarel is into it in a big, big way at CU. Last fall, in his first cross country season for the Buffs, his finishes earned All-Pac-12 First Team, All-Mountain Region and All-America honors. In his first race for the Buffs – the NCAA Pre-Nationals – he was CU’s No. 2 scorer with a ninth-place finish. In the NCAA Championships, he finished eighth as the Buffs won their fourth NCAA team title since 2001. He became CU’s first true freshman since Billy Nelson to earn All-America recognition. Nelson, who finished 42nd that year (2002), now is one of Wetmore’s assistants.

Saarel is among 14 CU student-athletes who will compete on Sunday in the Payton Jordan Invitational at Stanford, while a pair of CU sprinters will run at the Longhorn Invitational on Saturday in Austin. Saarel is scheduled to run in the 5,000 meters on Sunday night.

CU Continuing At NCAA Regionals



CU GolfUniversity of Colorado will continue its season at the 2014 NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Regionals.

The Buffaloes received one of 44 at large bids to the regional tournaments, considered the preliminary rounds of the NCAA Championships competition.

CU, who will be sending the team or an individual to the regionals for a fourth consecutive year, will compete as the No. 17 seed in the Central Regional at the 6,200-yard, par-72 Karsten Golf Club in Stillwater, Okla. from May 8-10.

The Buffs’ region includes fellow Pac-12 opponents UCLA, Arizona and California (all of whom rank in Golfstat’s most recent top 35) and former Big 12 foes Kansas, Texas and host team Oklahoma State. Additionally, Texas Tech’s Kimmie Hill will be competing as an individual.

The top eight teams and two individuals from each of the three regionals will advance to the NCAA Championships Finals, held at the Tulsa Country Club from May 20-23 in Tulsa, Okla.

Going into the tournament with the ups and downs of the regular season behind them and with prior knowledge of the course helps Kelly know what her team has to do to have success at regionals and have the possibility of advancing to the NCAA Championships. Kelly says it’s a difficult time, with the team also taking its final exams during the week of regionals, but believes the Buffs can find the right balance.

CU Mens Golf Team 10th Place



CU GolfThe second round play was suspended for nine schools due to impending darkness and slow play that saw each round take nearly six hours to complete.

The University of Colorado men’s golf team managed to finish its first two rounds here Friday and landed in 10th place at the midway point of the 55th annual Pac-12 Championships, though second round play was suspended for nine schools due to impending darkness and slow play that saw each round take nearly six hours to complete.

No. 3 Stanford had two golfers needing to complete three holes between them, but the Cardinal stood at 2-under par as a team with only those remaining to finish up 36 holes as a team; No. 4 California was one of just three teams to complete both rounds and is four back, as the Bears finished with a 2-over 722 team score. Those two have broken from the pack at this point, as No. 10 Washington is a distant third, 15-over par, but the Huskies have 24 holes left to top off the second round.

The No. 52 Buffaloes also were fortunate enough to finish both rounds, though are in 10th place, some 16 shots out of ninth place at this point, with a 41-over par 761; Oregon holds ninth but does have 24 holes remaining, so the gap could close: the Ducks are finishing up on the same final holes the Buffs did, and CU struggled down the stretch in the second round, playing those six holes a combined 19-over par, 15-over by the five players who wound up contributing to the team score.

Stanford led Arizona after the first round, as the Cardinal put an opening 2-over 362 team score into the books to lead the host Wildcats by four shots. Colorado was tied for eighth with Arizona State at 19-over 379.

Colorado played the first round at a disadvantage after sophomore Philip Juel-Berg withdrew after nine holes in first round with some flu-like symptoms; he was obviously not his normal self, opening with a double bogey and was around 7-over when he pulled out. But he toughed it out and returned to play in the afternoon, and turned in a 4-over 76; he was actually 1-under through 15 but finished with a bogey and two doubles.

CU Looses 7-6 To Cal



lacrosseThe University of Colorado lacrosse team battled but came up short against California, falling 7-6 here Sunday.

The Buffaloes trailed 3-2 heading into halftime, marking the lowest combined first half score for a CU game this season. CU had a bigger presence in the second half, scoring four of its six goals. With 1:17 remaining in regulation, Johnna Fusco got the Buffs back within a single goal, but Cal would dominate possession until the final horn to hand CU just its second home loss.

Still fighting for a bid to the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament, Colorado falls to 9-7 overall, 5-3 MPSF. The Buffs had a great home field advantage in their inaugural season, falling just twice at Kittredge Field for a home record of 6-2. Against Cal, 402 fans cheered on the Buffs in their home finale.

Fusco led the Buffs, recording her fourth hat trick of the season. Fusco has now scored three or more goals in seven games. Cali Castagnola had two goals, while Amelia Brown contributed one. For just the second time this season, the Buffs had zero assists. The last time the Buffs had no assists, they suffered their one and only other home loss, an 11-8 defeat to Brown.

CU Beats ODU 12-10



lacrosseThe University of Colorado lacrosse team edged its final non-conference opponent of the regular season, taking down Old Dominion 12-10 Friday.

For the third time in as many games, the Buffaloes battled back from a first half deficit to claim the win. The Lady Monarchs went on a 4-0 run in less than three minutes time to grab a three-goal lead with 11:09 remaining in the first half. Down 7-5 at the break, the Buffs outscored the Lady Monarchs seven to three in the final 30 minutes of regulation. For the ninth straight game, the Buffs have held their opponent to five or fewer second half goals.

ODU outshot CU 24 to 20 and scooped up five more ground balls (15 to 10), but Colorado dominated the draw 17 to seven. Though CU had eight more turnovers (21 to 13), ODU had 12 more fouls, grabbing 32, including 18 in the second half, to CU’s 20.

Colorado (9-6 overall, 5-2 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation) did a great job of spreading the offense, with six Buffs netting goals. Amelia Brown was the top point-getter, recording a hat trick and contributing an assist. Sarah Lautman, Marie Moore, Cali Castagnola and Johnna Fusco each had two goals, while Katie Macleay had a goal and two assists.
