A Wrap-Up On Colorado At USATF Junior Olympic Nationals

A few days ago, we took you through Thursday. Now, we finish the story of Colorado at the USATF Junior Olympic Nationals meet in Kansas. These would be results that happened since the first article was posted.

The same caveat that applied with the first article applies again here, however. USATAF JO Nationals is a very large haystack to comb through for needles of results. If I miss something, please forgive me and let me know so I can update the article. I'm aiming at all placing (top eight) finishes for the 13-14 and older age groups.

  • Chantae Steele finished 5th in the 15-16 800 with a time of 2:19.19, after running a 2:18.92 in prelims
