Three Storylines For Colorado State In Every Classification


How High Can Jade Cass Go?

The Pawnee senior is a clear favorite to take the state title. After finishing second last year, he's literally raised the bar.

Despite coming from a school that only has a few dozen enrolled, his 6-8 personal best is tied for No. 1 among all-classifications. 

He's won every high jump competition this spring, and has gone over 6-4 six times. 

No Colorado high schooler has gone over 6-8 this season - can Cass? Keep an eye on the 1A high jump competition, which is scheduled for Saturday at 1:30 p.m. 

How Many Events Can The Heritage Christian Boys Claim?

Currently the squad from Fort Collins tops the state rankings in 100, 200, 800, 1,600, 3,200, long jump, 4x1, 4x4, and the 4x8.

There at 18 events, and currently Heritage Christian tops nine of them. 

Jaden Johnson leads the state in the 100, 200, and the long jump, while Levi Kilian is No. 1 in the 800, and teammate Seth Bruxvoort is the fastest 1,600 and 3,200 runner. Additionally, Burxvoort is No. 2 in the 800, and Kilian is No. 2 in the 1,600. 

Can The Largent Sisters Sweep The Sprints?

DeBeque freshman Railey Largent is headed to the state meet with the potential to win the event in her first high school state championships. Her biggest challenge? Teammate, and senior sister Jentry Largent

Together, they've got the fastest times in the 100, and Jentry tops the 200 list, while Railey has the No. 4 time. 

Additionally, Jentry is No. 2 in the 400. 

Could we see a Largent sister 1-2 sweep? Or how about a member of the Largent household top the podium in everything from the 100 on up to the 400? Keep an eye on the 1A 100, 200, and 400 finals. The 100 is scheduled for Saturday at 10:43 a.m., the 200 is Saturday at 1:26 p.m., and the 400 is Saturday at 11:43 a.m. 

BONUS: How Many Events Can Faith Novess Win/Set State Records?

The DeBque senior heads to the final state meet of her high school career as the favorite in the 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles, high jump, and the long jump.

Novess already owns the state record in the 100 hurdles, though she's already run faster than her meet record this year. Additionally, her season bests in the 300 hurdles and the high jump are better than the current state meet records.

There's a strong possibility Novess can tally 40 points alone, added to the potential that teammates Railey and Jentry Largent could sweep the sprints, DeBeque could walk away with a ton of points between these three athletes.

The 100H finals are scheduled for Saturday at 9:37 a.m., the 300H finals are scheduled for Saturday at 2:07 p.m., the high jump is scheduled for Friday at 8:30 a.m., and the long jump is scheduled for Saturday at 8:30 a.m.
