Colorado Rankings: Shake And Bake!


Camille Peisner dropped a state-leading, US No. 17 in the 400.

Who's ready for state? (Everyone raise their hands)

The cream has risen to the top - that much is obvious. While there weren't a lot of new state-leading marks, there was a ton of movement within this week's set of rankings. 

Sydney Holiday remained in the No. 2 spot in the 100, but did inch up within Arria Minor's shadow just a bit. Holiday ran 11.72 at the Front Range League Championships. 

Behind her Teagan Zwaanstra nearly cracked 12 for the first time this season. Zwaanstra ran 12.00 for a Colorado No. 4.

The 200 saw some serious movement. 

Camille Peisner had a big, big weekend. Peisner ran 24.21 at the Jeffco Championships for the second fastest 200 in the state this season. Additionally, Peisner ran a state-leading 54.31 in the 400.

Back to the 200...

Maya Provencal ran 24.77 for a Colorado No. 4 at the Jeffco Championships, while the Queen of 2A Sprints, Remington Ross, stormed to a 24.89 for a Colorado No.5. 

In the 100 Hurdles 

Zion Smith jumped to the No. 3 spot in all-classifications, running 14.64, while Destiny Grimes ran a Colorado No. 4 in 14.68. 

Likewise, Destiny Butler made a big jump in the 300 Hurdles, running a PR of 44.21 for the third-fastest time in the state this season.

Of the many big stories coming out of the weekend, the top one has got to be Marlena Preigh. The Fairview senior dropped a state-leading, US No. 4 2:07.31 in the 800 at the Front Range League Championships. Her US No. 4 mark comes without any altitude conversions.

And Preigh wasn't the only half-miler with a big performance - Lilly Lavier ran a big PR of 2:12.18 for a Colorado No. 3.

The 1,600 was yet another event that saw some serious shaking...

The Multi-League Championships in Grand Junction produced perhaps the most competitive 1,600 in the state this year, as the race saw four of the top-eight 1,600s in the state this season. It was a battle between the Blair sisters and the Harding sisters, and a few of the state's best milers.

Joslin Blair and Samantha Blair ran within a tenth-of-a-second from each other, with Joslin claiming the W in 5:01.27 to Samantha's 5:01.37. Madeleine Burns was just behind in 5:02.21, while Lizzy Harding was in her shadow at 5:02.29, and sister Naomi Harding just a step back in 5:03.81. 

In the shot put Logan DeRock reclaimed the thrown with a personal best of 42-3 - that leads the state by a mere inch, while Teagan Zwaanstra moved into the No. 2 spot in the long jump with an 18-8.5 performance at the Cherry Creek Invitational. 

We've got a new state-leader in the pole vault, and that's Lauren Jarossy. The Legend senior went 12-3, just off her PR, for a new Colorado No. 1
