The Return Of Arria Minor
Arria Minor returned to the track after her highly successful indoor season, and she didn't disappoint. The Denver East junior did what she does best: win.
Minor made no contest of the 100 and the 200, which she simply dominated the field with (wind-aided) 11.38 and 23.23 wins. Both times are new state-leading marks.
Likewise, Anna Hall shined in a variety of events, more specifically, the hurdles. Hall ran the No. 2 time in the county, 42.03, in the 300 hurdles. She also placed second (to Minor) in the 200 in 24.45, and won the 100 hurdles in 14.52 over Jaiden Paris, who was second in 14.63.
made no contest of the 400, winning the event going away in 54.65, while MaLeigha Menegatti
was the upset winner of the 800, which saw seven go under 2:19. Menegatti ran 2:17.54 for the win.
In the field Taylor James
dominated the high jump with a mark of 5-6, while Amber Gustason enjoyed a similar domination in the discus with a toss of 121.35.
and Sydnee Larkin
shined in the jump, with Evans winning the long jump in 18-6.25, and Larkin taking the long jump in 40-4.
The girls pole vault was a highly competitive event, with eight going over 10-8. It was Mia Manson
, however, who outlasted her competition, going 12-8 for the win.
