Manson Leaps To No. 9 In the Country At Mines

Monarch's Mia Manson went 19-2.25 for a US No. 9 mark.

It seems like every week someone else is stepping up their game...

Last week Anna Hall made headlines with her 19-9 long jump, which was No. 1 in the country for nearly 48 hours (it's No. 2 now), and her Colorado No. 1 in the shot put. 

This week the baton was handed off to Monarch junior Mia Manson, who made a very literal leap of the week. Manson, who previously owned a 17-11.25 (outdoor) personal best in the long jump, skipped over 18 feet entirely, landing at 19-2.25. The mark is No. 2 in Colorado behind Hall's 19-9, and No. 9 in the country. 

Fun Fact: Manson's jump would be No. 1 in the 46 states. 

The girl's long jump was clearly a highlight of the meet - and there were quite a few. Hall won the event in 19-5.75, which is the second time she's gone over 19 feet in the past week, and of additional note, Abigail Tamminga went 18-5.5 for third, making it three who went beyond the 18-foot barrier. 

Manson also also went on to win the pole vault in a season best of 11-7, which is a new Colorado No. 1 mark.

Hall continued her streak of stellar performances, adding a few inches to her toss in the shot. She won the event in 40-11, which reset her own Colorado No. 1 mark, and moved her to No. 33 in the US. 

And the highlights weren't done with Manson and Hall...

Hailey Harris went big in the triple jump. The Regis Jesuit senior went 38-0.25 for a new Colorado No. 1 mark, which is just once inch shy of her outdoor PR. 

FK Elite's Sydney Holiday swept the straight-away sprints, winning the 60 in 7.67, and the 60H in 8.91, while Lanie Szuch duplicated the feat on the other side of the spectrum, winning the 800 in 2:27, and the 3,000 in 10:55. 

Anthony Highlights On The Boys Side

While Manson was making headlines in the girl's long jump, Mason Anthony was doing the same on the boy's side of the competition.

Anthony added over two feet to his best in his first attempt in the event this year. The Elizabeth senior won the event in 23-2.25 for the No. 11 mark in the country, and a new Colorado No. 1.

Elijah Williams took down Zion Gordon in the 60, with both going under 7 seconds. Williams won the event in 6.93, just ahead of Gordon's 6.96.

Gordon rallied back to win the 60H over Cameron Harris in a personal best of 7.95. The time ties Cameron Harris for the No. 7 time in the country.

Yonas Mogos ran a new Colorado No. 1 mark in the 800 with a 2:02.45, which was clear of the field, while 

Sean Sands and Colin Szuch took the 3,000 down to the wire. Sands took the win in 9:43.09 to Szuch's 9:43.55. 

Fischer James Argosino won the triple jump in 43-7.75, which is No. 2 in Colorado to his own 44-5.

The pole vault was another event with a couple of highlights. Max Manson won the event with ease in 16-1, but the story was Hunter Potrykus, who prompted a quick edit in Thursday night's Top Progression Of The Boys PV In 2019 So Far story.  

Before Thursday night Potrykus held a 14-5 personal best, which was already a massive improvement from 2018. But by the end of the night he eclipsed the 15-foot marker, finishing second in 15-1.
