Inside Look with Kate Rau, Colorado League Director
Kate Rau has been busy preparing for the Colorado League’s Fall racing series. Teams start practicing on August 1st. We caught up with her while during her preparations to see how things are going.
The League is entering its second season. What has been keeping you busy this summer?
I have been doing lots of outreach events this year, connecting student-athletes, parents and coaches from the Denver Metro area and on the Western Slope (areas west of the Continental Divide).
