The list of entries for this year's Colorado State Pentathlon meet in Brighton is probably about as short as you can ever remember it being.
That's likely to mean some folks are going to need to watch their pacing. This is a meet that has already tended to run quickly, even with much larger groups of participants. With a group as small as this year's, it's going to be very easy to rush from event to event.

On the list, you will find several of Colorado's top athletes in any of several events, but the idea of the pentathlon is to find who does multiple events best, not just a single event.
We are guaranteed new champions from last year. Heather Harrower, the two-time girls champion has graduated and now competes for the University of North Dakota. Parker Strahler would still be eligible for the competition, but is not listed among this year's entries.
Colorado Track XC will not be on-hand for coverage this year, but we will try to get results up as soon as they become available.
