Why Burger: Jack Burger earned trips to two state championships this fall, playing first in the tennis state tournament last month and then running Saturday in the state cross-country meet. He led the Steamboat team with a 31st-place finish.

Quotable: "Most of the week, cross-country practice would be at 4 p.m., then tennis at 5:30, so I could usually make it to both. Some days I would run from cross-country to tennis. I just really like both sports."
