DeBeque track duo commits to UCCS

DEBEQUE, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) In a graduating class of 19, two state track athletes signed to run track at University of Colorado Colorado Springs.

Faith Novess is a two time state champion in the 4x100 relay and 100m hurdles. She was also named the CHSSA 1A Female Athlete of the year in 2018.

Jentry Largent had a long recovery after an injury last season. She was the 1A State runner up in 2016-17 and was also named to the First Team All-State.

It's the first time DeBeque has had two athletes sign to the same school in the same sport.

After performing at a small high school for the past four years, Novess said she is looking forward to competing at the college level.

"I think we are going to adapt very well," said Novess. "I'm excited to get different competition than what we have been getting in high school. I wanted to continue my track career so I'm really excited to go with my best friend."
