Freshman Korey Hairston highlights a solid boys crew competing at the Simplot Games.
There are a lot of Colorado entrants for the Simplot Games, so here's a quick rundown of some of the state's top athletes, and what event they're competing in.
60: Can Korey Hairston dip under 7.0? The freshmen-phenom has run under 7.10 four times this indoor season. He's currently the No. 4 60 runner in Colorado along with Sterling Brassfield, who is also in the field and could break the barrier as well.
200 - Jalen Lyon is Colorado's No. 1 200 runner indoors, how does he stack up against some of the best in the country? Colorado No. 3 and 4, Deondre Ritter and Ibro Soumah are also in the field and could be threats.
Mile - 4:13 miler James Lee will open up his 2018 track campaign here, and should be one to reckon with. He hasn't raced indoors yet, but his prior achievements throw him into the conversation with ease. Additionally, Cal Banta hasn't run an indoor mile yet, but he has run 1:56 in the 800.
High Jump - Jalen Lyon will look to improve on his Colorado No. 3 mark of 6-4 here.
Shot put - Colorado's No. 1 Reece Davidson will head to the Simplot Games in search of more gains. Davidson has been on a roll this indoor season. Colorado No. 2 James Heater is also on the start list.
