State championship goalie is "Athlete of the Week"

To quote the great Yogi Berra, "It's like Déjà vu all over again" for Lewis-Palmer senior goalie Brent Schwarz.

Last year Schwarz won the "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete of the Week" award just days after his Lewis-Palmer hockey team won the state title. Lewis-Palmer won a second straight state hockey championship last Thursday at Pepsi Center and once again Schwarz is the "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete of the Week."

Schwarz was brilliant in net again this year with a goals against average less than two. In four state playoff games he game up only four goals. Brent stopped 33 of 35 shots in the 5-2 state championship win over Regis.
