Wondering about that lone Colorado performance? That would be Logan Simington running a 4:35.23 1600. I'm guessing Simington had a reason to be in California in addition to the race, as it seems a long way to go to run a 1600. But, I've been known to guess wrong before...
Tyler Scholl had a 4:34.86 for a full mile in Portland. I'm guessing it was a little cooler in Portland this weekend than in Sacramento. But, that appears to be a wrap for the Colorado performances.
If you're a Colorado girl with dreams of making it to Nike Cross Nationals this fall, your task got incrementally easier with word that Grace Ping is moving back to Minnesota. No Nike Cross Southwest for Ping this fall. Meanwhile, Ping was busy setting a US age group record for the 5000 at this meet in Portland.
The place to be this weekend if you weren't on the west coast or weren't in Alamosa on Saturday was Valor Christian High School for the second annual running of the Kyle Macintosh Twilight. And, there were some seriously good performances. It begins with Semaye Johnson and Alexis Buckhaults a hundredth of a second either side of 14.50 for the 100 hurdles. It continues with a 1:01.85 for Emily Sloan in the 400 hurdles. The longer hurdles events have been a bit of a new thing for Sloan this spring, but she's taken to them well. It continues with a big 157-6 toss of the discus for Kain Medrano. If you're looking for an early favorite in next year's 4A Boys discus, Kain might be your man. In fact, he might still be that even if you're not particular with regard to classification in that quest.
In easier-to-overlook news, the track and field program at Skyline High School is working hard in the off season under the club name of CDM Elite. Results are showing. Check out results for boys sprints and throws. There could be a new team to think about next spring.
