GHS Baseball — It may be quiet in Gunnison this week with nearly everyone on spring break, but the Gunnison High School (GHS) baseball team is already making some noise around the state.

Western Track and Field — It took just one toss for Western State Colorado University sophomore Ashley Long to put her mark in the school’s top-10 record book. The redshirt sophomore threw 175-feet, four-inches in the hammer throw Saturday in Pueblo to highlight the Mountaineers’ opening of the 2017 outdoor season.

A two-hour drive from Gunnison takes you into the heart of a sandhill crane migration rest stop. Cranes come from the south where they have wintered, and stay up to six weeks on the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge to feed, rest and begin the mating dances. Their numbers at peak in mid-March can be as many as 10,000 birds.
