Kain Medrano tossed 56-3.75 in the shot for the No. 2 mark in the event.
We had three stellar meets on the tail-end of the past week, and they provided quite the shakeup in the latest Colorado rankings. Between the Colorado Mines HS Indoor Series #5, the Let's Get REAL Invitational, and the Air Force High School Indoor Open, we had our fair share of eye-opening performances.
We had nine "new" state-leading marks on the boy's side, and a ton of movement within the rankings.
Starting in the sprints, Cameron Harris became the third Colorado boy to run 6.87 this season. Yes - you read that right. The top of the rankings go three wide in the boy's 60, because three have run 6.87.
And speaking of sharing the top of the rankings, Valor Christian freshman Gavin Sawchuk went 21.99 at Air Force to tie the top time of the indoor season.
Zion Gordon may share the top of the rankings in the 60, but he went 7.91 to own the No. 1 time in the 60 hurdles.
Cole Sprout made his 2019 debut at Air Force and as expected, it was a win in the mile. Sprout ran 4:23.15 for a state-leading time.
Brandon Hippe came out of the the gates swinging in the 3,000 at the Let's Get REAL Invitational. Hippe ran a state-leading 9:14.
Across town and a day later Erik Le Roux put his name on top of the board in the 2-mile. Le Roux ran 9:50 for the win, and a new Colorado No. 1.
Ryan Blake proved his early fitness in the high jump, going 6-4 at Air Force to tie for the No. 1 mark in Colorado this season.
And then there's the horizontal jumps...
Keep an eye on Elizabeth senior Mason Anthony these next few months, because he's launched himself to a new level in the long jump. Anthony went 23-9.25 at Mines, which is No. 1 in Colorado, and No. 9 nationally.
Defending triple jump state champ Allam Bushara has already set the bar heading into the 2019 track season. Despite competing in the TJ for the first time in 2019, he dominated the event in a state-leading 47-5.5 at Air Force.
