She has committed to play lacrosse at Stanford after taking a gap year to volunteer and study abroad in Europe. She will enter the school in the fall of 2024.

Oregon football commit Blake Purchase was a four-time State Champion with the CCHS football team and also lettered in basketball. Purchase is the Colorado Gatorade Player of the Year for the 22-23 season.

The Kurby Lyle Award, established in 1988, honors the legendary basketball coach and former athletic director for Chery Creek High School. Each year, one male and one female recipient are selected by CCSD athletics directors from nominations from the district’s six comprehensive high schools.
