Records Fall At St. Vrain As State Looms Days Away


Madison Mooney ran clear of the field for a state-leading 2:10.19 win in the 800.

Like the boys, there were a lot of highlights on the girl's side of the competition. 

Michael Mooney wasn't the only one in his house who capped the night with a state-leading performance. Twin sister, Madison Mooney, blitzed the 800 field and made no contest of the race. The Broomfield senior led from the start, cruising through the first 200 meters in 32 seconds. She maintained her tempo throughout the next 400 and kicked hard down the final stretch, winning in a personal best. Mooney made a statement with her 2:10.19 win, which moved her back in to the No. 1 spot heading into state.

The 1,600 was another insanely huge race, as 18 runners broke 5:15, led by Katelyn Mitchem came agonizingly close to a sub 5. Mitchem won the race in 5:01. Five girls ran 5:03 or faster, including Lizzy Harding and Naomi Harding, who ran 5:02.31, and 5:02.34, and Taylor Whitfield and Tatum Miller, who ran 5:02.68 and 5:03.29.
