Manson & Hall Book Their Tickets To Costa Rica

Rumor has it that the finest coffee beans in the world come from Costa Rica... 

(In my best Bob Barker voice): You've won an all-inclusive trip to colorful Costa Rica!

While most high school seniors have already planned, or already enjoyed, their post-graduation senior-trips, Max Manson and Anna Hall are enjoying a trip down south to Costa Rica - for business. 

The duo booked their tickets to the NACAC Pan-American U20 Championships in San Jose, Costa Rica next month with their big performances at the USATF Junior National Championships this past weekend. 

As per the trend, Hall dominated the women's heptathlon in a title defense that was practically a one-woman show. 

The future Georgia Bulldog won five of the seven events, including the 110 Hurdles in 13.95, the high jump in 5-11.5, the shot put in 40-00.75, the 200 in 24.20, and the 800 in 2:14.73. 

After Day 1 Hall was well on her way to not only defend her title, but to reset her national record, though she experienced a rare off-day on the second day of competition. 

She went on to finish third in the long jump in 16-11.5, and third in the javelin in 105-6.

Hall's final tally was 5,646 points, which was just shy of her own national record of 5,798. 

Ticket: Booked.

Manson will be donning the red, white, and blue of Team USA along with Hall, as he solidified his spot among the hierarchy of the country's pole vault elite. 

The Monarch senior easily booked his ticket to Costa Rica with a runner-up finish in 16-10.75. 

Sydney Holiday capped her first season as a Colorado athlete on the big stage in the 100 finals. The Broomfield junior was just a few ticks away from picking her size in those coveted blue Team USA uniforms. 

Holiday finished seventh in the 100 finals, running 11.59. She ran a season best of 11.58 in the prelims a day earlier. She also finished 12th in the 200 prelims, just missing the final.
