We've got a lot of news for a Monday, so grab some coffee and a muffin or donut perhaps, sit back, and get ready to scroll...
Among the highlights...
Alamosa's Lilly Lavier is now two-for-two on the season. She picked up big-time win No. 2 at the Centaurus Invite, running 18:42. And picking up his first win, was Confier's Zack Gacnik, who took the boy's race in 16:16.
And speaking of big-time wins, Mountain Vista's Sarah O'Sullivan torched the field at the Runners Roost Rock Canyon Invite, running 19:03 for a 41-second victory. Palmer's Gus McIntyre was the runaway winner on the boy's side, running 16:08 to beat out Rampart's Ben Conlin, who finished second in 16:26.
The Classical Academy Sawyer Wilson has solidified herself as The Real Deal. The freshman ran away from the field at the Arvada West Wildcat Invite to keep her sheet clean. She picked up win No. 3 in 18:59. TCA teammate Kennedy McDonald was just 18 seconds back in 19:17. The boy's side of the race saw big runs from TCA's Mason Norman, Chatfield's Cole Nash, and Denver East's Will Daley. Norman took down this star-studded field with a 15:41 win. Nash had a big race of his own, sandwiched right between Norman and Daley in 15:46 for second. Daley was just two seconds back in third.
And speaking of freshmen standouts...
Ella Johns turned the tables on Lena Fogarty at the Wolverine XC Invite. The Fort Collins freshman took off from the start and never looked back. Johns earned the first win of her high school career with a 18:53 clocking. Fogarty was just nine seconds back in 19:02.
Speaking of runners named Ella...
Air Academy's Ella Chura raced into a world of her own at the Air Academy Kadet Invite. Chura dominated the field by 56 seconds, running 19:04 FTW.
Ryan Montera was the runaway winner of the Legacy Lightning Invite. The Legacy junior nearly cracked 16 for the second time this season, running 16:11 FTW.
Out west, or north, or both, Chaparral freshman Bryanna Hoffman dipped under 19 for the second time this season, running 18:46 for an insanely massive victory at the Fort Morgan Invite. Her margin of victory: 1:36.
Put everyone in 3A on alert...
Deep in the heart of Colorado Sierra Bower had perhaps the performances of the weekend. The Basalt junior ran away from a stellar field that included Samantha Blair, and Joslin Blair. Bower ran a big-time personal best of 18:07 at over 6,300 feet of elevation for her most impressive win on a cross country yet. The Blair sisters ran in tandem for a 2-3 finish, both clocking 18:31.
