Hangge And Dageenakis Families Honored by Niwot Youth Sports July 2011
BY BRUCE WARREN
Hangge Fields at Monarch Park was unveiled as the new name of the Niwot Youth Sports ballfields in Niwot off Highway 52 near Shepherd Valley Waldorf School at a dedication ceremony June 5. The fields were named in honor of Gregg Hangge and his family, including wife Karen, sons Joe, Jon and Jake, and daughter Jill Hasson.
At the same ceremony, the primary softball field at the complex was named “Dageenakis Field” in honor of John “Tony” Dageenakis and his family, including wife Elayne and sons Tony, Jeff and Craig.
The dedications honored two families who have volunteered countless hours to make sure that the Niwot-Gunbarrel area had quality sports programs and facilities for area youth.
Hangge Fields at Monarch Park
Gregg Hangge began his participation in Niwot Youth Sports, then known as Gunbarrel Lefthand Valley Recreation Association, as a volunteer when his son Joe jointed the K-2 basketball clinic in 1989. Basketball Director Dennis Roth quickly recruited the elder Hangge to become the girls program coordinator when his daughter Jill began playing, and Hangge took over as Basketball Director from Roth in 1993, a position he held for many years. Hangge was honored by the Colorado Association of Community Educators in 1994 for coordinating a program which had grown to 500 youth.Read more: Hangge And Dageenakis Families Honored by Niwot Youth Sports
