Wayne Barnett Mountaineer Staff It’s not typical dining facility fare — fennel-crusted tuna with jicama, seared duck breast, saffron-infused rice and strawberry rhubarb tart with raspberry whipped cream and blackberry sauce. These are just some of the dishes that 11 Fort Carson cooks prepared Feb. 14-15 to practice for the 37th U.S. Army Culinary Arts Competition Wednesday-March 7 at Fort Lee, Va. “The hardest part of the competition we face is eight days of continuous competitions with one of those lasting 36 hours,” said team captain Warrant Officer Ronald Burwell, 1st Special Troops Battalion, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division. The U.S. Army Culinary Arts Competition at Fort Lee is the largest culinary competition in North America, according to the U.S. Army Quartermaster School website, http://www.quartermaster.army.mil. Since 1973, the competition has been held each year with the exception of 1991 and 2003, during Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. The competition is sanctioned by the American Culinary Federation and showcases the talents of military chefs from around the globe in all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, according to the website. “I think our biggest challenge is that the other teams do train year-round and may have a little more experience, but with hard work and dedication I feel we will pull through,” said Spc. Paige Atkinson, 64th Brigade Support Battalion, 3rd BCT, 4th Inf. Div. The team is comprised of team leader Sgt. 1st Class Javier Carrasco, 64th BSB, 3rd BCT, 4th Inf. Div.; Burwell; Sgt. Tabb Hall and Pvt. Mathew Murren, 1st Battalion, 2nd Aviation Regiment; Atkinson, Spcs. Kishor Giri, Shawn Hafele and Andrew Timm, 64th BSB, 3rd BCT, 4th Inf. Div.; Sgt.

    • Feb. 24, 2012 — MOUNTAINEER 27Trojans begin playoff chase Story and photo by Walt Johnson Mountaineer staff It has been an interesting year for theFountain-Fort Carson High School boysbasketball team. The year will culminatein a trip to the Colorado 5A state playoffsas the Trojans seek to put a positive end-ing to one of the strangest years in theschool’s basketball history. The Trojans will meet Eaglecrest, whobeat Fort Collins, 48-30, Tuesday. TheTrojans received a first-round bye. The season could not have gotten offto a more questionable start for theTrojans. The team’s former head coachresigned and its current head coach, GregWilliams, inherited not only the task ofputting together the varsity team with shortnotice, but also had to blend a lot of talenttogether that had not played as a team. Early in the season, Williams’ teamplayed a murderous schedule the first sixweeks of the season. The team faced someof the top teams in the state, posting a 6-6record. No one knew what to expect fromthe Trojans as the early season test servedthe team well as it ran off 15 straightvictories to enter the state playoffs as oneof the hottest teams. The Trojans are one of the fewteams south of Denver to make it intothe tournament this year. They are,without a doubt, worthy of a playoff spot.The Trojans bring a balanced scoringattack and a sound defensive-mindedteam into the tournament and should bea difficult opponent. If the Trojans win Friday’s contest,they will move on to meet the winner ofNo. 1 seed Chaparral and No. 8 DakotaRidge Tuesday at 7 p.m. If Chaparralwins, they will host the Trojans; ifDakota Ridge wins, they will travel to Fountain-Fort Carson’s Brent Jackson shoots over two Rampart Rams defenders Feb. 17 at Fountain-Fort Carson High School.Fountain-Fort Carson.

    • Feb. 24, 2012 — MOUNTAINEER 29Mountaineer Athlete of the Week Paul Key Intramural basketball player Paul Key was a typical young man growing up. Before going to high school he played as many sports as he possibly could. When he got to high school, he settled on playing basketball. In fact, he was good enough at basketball to get some scholarship offers, but instead chose to attend West Point and become an Army officer. What is your favorite personal sports moment? I played on the U.S. national team for team handball and we made the Pan-American Games, which is an Olympic qualifier. Qualifying for a tournament of that nature and playing against the top teams in South America has been the most exciting moment for me. What is your favorite professional sports moment? I love watching Jeremy Lin (New York Knicks point guard) right now because I think he’s a great example of perseverance. He’s humble and he works hard. I think he is a real example the kids could look up, to especially those who are trying to learn the game of basketball. If you could meet any sports personality who would it be? Michael Jordan. He had the best work ethic and was a winner, and I think you can learn a lot from him about life in general and not just sports. What is the one thing you would like to do in sports that you have not done yet? I would love to qualify and be on an Olympic team for team handball. That is my goal and my dream (to) one day represent the country on an Olympic team handball group. People who don’t know me would be surprised to know … I am very artsy and do a lot of creative design on the side. Currently I’m designing the graphic design for the USA Volleyball website.
