The 2A State Recap: Firor Brings The Fire

On the boy's side of the competition David Trujillo completed the Cinderella story by winning the 100. The Rocky Ford senior took the 100 at the line with an 11.19 victory. Tyler Schwartz took the runner-up spot in 11.32. 

Trujillo doubled for the 200, though this time he shared the finish line with Kellen Kinsella, as both were clocked at 23.01. 

The 400 was another race that came down to the line, as Alex Ramos and Colton Jonjak-Plahn were separated by less than a tenth of a second. Ramos took the state title with a 50.14 finish, while Jonjak-Plahn was just inches back in 50.21.

And that wasn't the only close race for Jonjak-Plahn. 

The Lyons senior capped his high school career with a state title in the 800. Jonjak-Plahn beat Harley Ewert by two-hundredths of a second to win the event 1:59.43 to 1:59.45.

And speaking of tight races...

Jaden Evans and Isaac Roberts took the 1,600 down the wire. Evans got the lean FTW in 4:30.27, while Roberts was an insanely close runner-up in 4:30.77. 

The two swapped positions in the 3,200, however, with Roberts claiming the state title in 9:57, while Evans was six seconds back in 10:03. Noel Lopez was a close third-place in 10:04.

In the 110H two dipped under 16 seconds, led by Orin Carnes, who won the event in 15.79. Jace Peebles finished second in 15.97.

Nicholas Navarette was the runaway victor in the 300H, clearing the field by over a full second. The Hoehne junior ran 40.84 FTW.

The high jump was a battle between Grant Redmond and Jake Chrisman as both cleared 6-7.

In the horizontal jumps Victor Mendoza was the king. 

The Yumas senior claimed the long jump title with a leap of 20-10.5, which was five inches over Anthony Medina, while Mendoza won the triple jump by a much more comfortable margin of three feet, going 44-1.5. 

In the pole vault no one could go to the heights of Jake Chrisman. The Yuma senior was the lone vaulter over 14 feet, winning the event with a 14-4. 

In the throws Caden Showalter reigned supreme. 

The Mancos junior claimed the discus by nearly two feet over Lane Walter, winning 161-1 to 159-10, and he won the shot over his brother, Show Showalter, 48-1.5 to 47-4.5

In the relays Clear Creek cleared the field, winning the 4x1 in 44.10, while Vail Christian took the 4x2 over Rocky Ford by two-tenths of a second. Limon claimed the final event of the meet, the 4x4, running 3:30, while Lyons downed Paonia in the 4x8 by two seconds, winning 8:20 to 8:22.

In the team competition Lyons roared to victory, claiming the title with 68 points. Mancon was second with 57 points, while Yuma finished third with 52 points.
