The Owl

Bryce Myers, Writer

My name is Bryce Myers and this is my first time as a staff writer on The Owl. I  heard about The Owl from a friend and decided to try my hand at journalism as a fun and engaging alternative to traditional Language Arts classes. I hope to be an active contributor to the Opinion section of the paper, improve my writing with every story I publish, and get to know more people. While writing, I’ll often daydream of one of my personal heroes: my old wrestling coach, Gil Espinoza. Being a Vietnam vet, a retired firefighter chief, and an amazing coach, Espinoza has more than earned my admiration as a “certified badass.” I’m a senior at Boulder, and have been wrestling for the past eight years and will be competing in my fourth year on the varsity team this winter. When you can’t find me on the mat, I’m most likely out with friends. My favorite activities include hiking, exploring, and just enjoying all the nature that Colorado has to offer. Although all of this may lead one to think that I’m loved by all, I like purple grapes, and Miller dislikes that.

The Return of Boulder’s Best

Bryce Myers, Staff Writer November 24, 2019
Boulder High's wrestling team has made a big turn around from previous years. Last year their dual meet record was seven wins to one loss, and the previous year the team didn’t win any duals. Part of the reason why is because the team has grown pretty full, whereas years prior there were around seven kids...
