    (Senior Jenny DeSouchet, a member of the cross country and track and field team, recently sat down with two of her teammates, junior Maddie Alm and freshman Kaitlyn Benner, both Monarch High School alumni, to talk about their success this year. DeSouchet wrote this special feature for CUBuffs.com and will graduate on May 9 with a degree in English.)

    The 2014-15 year has brought another men’s NCAA Cross Country Championship, a slew of All-Americans, school-record breaking times and an enormous depth of talent for the University of Colorado’s cross country and track distance programs.

    But in addition to the achievements of the team as a whole is the remarkable background of two Monarch High School alumni who have blossomed into highly successful competitors, cutting minutes off of their high school bests. Junior Maddie Alm and freshman Kaitlyn Benner currently rank amongst the top 5k runners in the NCAA West Region, with hopes of taking their talents to the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in June for the first time.

    Nice article, especially for running fans, and great to see the Buffs able to recruit SO locally at Monarch and snag great student athletes.

    Also, great to see cubuffs utilize current students involved in a sport to write about the sport. (Can't remember seeing that done much (if ever?) before.)

    And, somehow seeing the words "cerebral intuitions" used together as a phrase just seems awesome to me.
