College athletes with special talent usually find the bright lights (and dollar signs) of the next level irresistible and a junior or senior year becomes an afterthought. Not University of Denver defenseman Will Butcher. While the Avalanche drafted him in 2013 and could have signed him after his junior season, they didn't. So he stayed a Pioneer for another year and what a year it was.

Jenny Simpson and Emma Coburn seemed to cast one shadow in 2016. 

A shadow needs sun to make its presence. Last year the sun shined brightly on the two friends and Boulder training partners when they won bronze medals in the Summer Olympics. They became the first women in U.S. history to take the Olympic podium in the 1,500 meters and 3,000-meter steeplechase, respectively.
