Zaire Jackson finished second in the 60 hurdles, and fourth in the 400.
It's not even December yet, but if the first edition of the Colorado Mines HS Indoor Series says anything, it's that we've got a lot of look forward to in the coming months...
Some of Colorado's best were eager to get back to work, that much was evident, as there were a slew of highlights coming out of Golden Thursday night.
Max Manson picked up nearly where he left off, proving that his adrenalin churning extra curricular activities have only added to his strength.
The defending state champion went 16-8.75 to open his season. By comparison, he opened up at 14-1 here last year (then went on to go 16-9-5 at Air Force, and 17-3-5 outdoors).
Zion Gordon came out of the blocks of the 2018-19 season fast.
The Regis Jesuit senior proved that he'll be a threat in coming months. Gordon opened up his senior campaign with a personal best in the 60, running 6.87 to win the event.
Evergreen freshman Colin Szuch took his cross country fitness into indoors, running a fairly sizable PR to win the mile in 4:45.
Grant Redmond nearly opened his season with a PR in the high jump, winning the event in 6-4.
And on the girl's side of the competition the 60 was absolutely loaded.
Maya Provencal led a star-studded field that included Anna Hall, Dawnielle Lewis, and Mia Manson. Provencal took the win in big PR of 7.67. Hall, Lewis, and Manson were hot on her heels in 7.72, 7.74, and 7.82.
Provencal also doubled back to win the 60 hurdles in 9.05.
Peak Performance's Lily Mourer grabbed a nail-ter of a win in the girl's mile.
The mile turned out to be a glimpse into the future, with a handful of stellar middle schoolers highlighting the field. Eighth-grader Lily Mourer from Peak Performance led the way in a race that went down to the wire, running 5:46.3 to seventh-grader teammate Reese Tucker's 5:46.95.
Like the 60, the long jump was another hotly contested affair. Hall led the way this time with a jump of 17-11.5, which was just an inch and a half beyond Manson's 17-10.
