Late Lunge Gives Berthoud First State Title in 15

By Michael Hicks Berthoud Recorder LAKEWOOD — Bryce Munoz lunged forward, trying to gain that last little inch of an advantage that he could muster. As soon as the Berthoud senior crossed the finish line he tumbled forward, ending up with a laceration under his left shoulder blade and abrasions on his back.
