Week 2 had a real "Hold My Water Bottle" feel to it.
Last week we saw that nearly everyone was pumped to hit the track for the first time of the season. This week, it became clear that track and field is in full swing, because everyone stepped up their game.
In the sprints Luc Andrada now owns the fastest times in the 100 and the 200. His 10.66 from Larry Pickering was just one of two sub 11s from the weekend, the other being the runner-up in the race - Brian Mosley, who went 10.92.
Tyrese VanHorne dropped the first Sub-50 400 of the season, running 49.25. He currently leads the state by over a second.
Dakota Ridge's distance crew spiked up for the first time since their third place finish at Nike Cross Nationals, and it showed in the Rankings.
Austin Vancil soloed a 4:20.98 in the 1,600. Currently the time is No. 1 in the state by five seconds. The top six 1,600 times in the state came from the Coyote Warrior Invite.
Erik Le Roux may be just a week into his first high school track season, but the freshman already has the fastest 3,200 in the state. Le Roux ran 9:38 at the Harrison Panther Invite.
We've got a clean slate of No. 1s in the field events...
In the high jump Owen Koonce went big at home. Koonce went 6-6 for a new state leading mark at the Coyote Warrior Invite. The mark is a two-inch personal best for Koonce, and leads the state by one inch.
Micaylon Moore dropped the first 23+ foot long jump of the outdoor season, going 23-0 at the Fleet Feet Qualifier just before the Bomb Cyclone hit.
Max Manson may be just one week removed from his indoor national title in the pole vault, but he's already at work outdoors. Manson made 16-6 look easy for a new No. 1. at the Coyote Warrior Invite.
In the throws Kain Medrano has put his stamp. He owns the top marks in the shot put and the discus. He went 177-4 in the discus, and 55-5 in the shot at the Larry Pickering Invite.
Like Dakota Ridge's distance crew, the Peak to Peak girls made waves this weekend at the Coyote Warrior Invite.
Tiana Bradfield had big weekend, not only claiming two wins, but running the fastest 800 in Colorado at 2:16.98. That's currently the fastest time in the event by four seconds.
Valor's Taylor Whitfield now owns top marks in the 1,600 and the 3,200. Whitfield ran 5:02.77 at the NoCo Qualifier #1 for a new state-leading mark, which was just ahead of Bradfield's 5:03 from the Coyote Warrior Invite.
In the 100 hurdles Destiny Grimes now owns the top mark at 14.77, while Mountain Vista's Kara Lucyk and Destiny Butler are a close 1-2 in the 300 hurdles. Lucyk ran 45.48 at the NoCo Qualifier #1, which was just ahead of Butler's 45.50.
Logan DeRock tallied the first 40+ shot this season, going 40-8.75 in the event.
