Mia Manson Goes 13-7 For A US No. 2 At Mines!

Blink and you missed it. 

That's how performances seem to be happening these days. You're looking one way, watching something big, and then something big happens over there. 

For the - Fourth? Fifth? Sixth? - time in the past week a Colorado athlete dropped a US Top-10 performance. 

This time is was Mia Manson

But to be clear, the Monarch senior did already own a US No. 7 in the pole vault, but she made a massive leap at the Colorado Mines HS Indoor Series #6 Thursday night. 

Manson went big for a new personal best - the first in two years - with a 13-7 vault. That's a US No. 2. The mark was her second time over 13 feet this indoor season, and a season best by six inches. 

A little over a week ago I surmised that Manson was finding her stride - it looks like she just needed one more week to really hit it right. 

Make sure to watch the video - she cleared the bar with room to spare. 

The final edition of the Mines Indoor HS Series was a monster, with the meet wrapping up as the second big snowfall of the week began to pour down on the Front Range. 

In addition to Manson's massive performance, we caught a glimpse of Remington Ross, who opened up her 2020 with a 7.59 in the 60 - a US No. 28, and CO No. 2. 

Clearly she's ready to storm the outdoor season. 

And speaking of making waves: Fabiola Belibi

The Regis Jesuit sophomore made an incredible leap of improvement in the long jump. A year ago she was a 17-4.75 long jumper. By the time she was headed home under the cover of darkness and tiny white snowflakes Thursday night she had moved the bar to 18-6.25 - a CO No. 5. 

Aspen Webb continued to inch her way down in the rankings - this time in the 800. The eighth-grader competing for Peak Performance torched the field with a 2:22 for a CO No. 3. 

Likewise, Grace Lange moved upwards in the triple jump rankings, leaping to an indoor PR of 37-1.25. 

Hunter Potrykus was the highlight of the boy's competition - he topped 15-feet for the fifth time this indoor season, going 15-1. 

Meanwhile, Luke Hard maintained his position on top of the shot put rankings, though he added a few more feet to his lead. The Mountain View senior went 52-4 to reset his CO No. 1.
