Rhyan Moore won the Western Colorado HS Open high jump in 5-4.
It was quite a busy weekend for indoor in Colorado, and across the country. Most athletes split between Friday night's Let's Get REAL Invitational in Colorado Springs, Saturday's UW High School Invitational in Washington, and Sunday's Western Colorado University High School Indoor Open in Gunnison.
There were some major highlights of the weekend that came out of the UW High School Invite, particularly with that incredible girl's mile.
Madeleine Burns joined the two under 5 minutes in 4:52 with a fourth-place finish to give Colorado three of the top-four finishers in the event.
Burns also doubled back to run the 3,000, where Lanie Szuch led the Centennial State with a 10:02 clocking to finish fifth. Burns added a ninth-place, 10:08 finish to her busy weekend.
Another eye-opening result came from eight-grader Lauren Larson, who finished fifth in the 800 in 2:17.
Le Roux led Colorado in the mile with a 4:21, fourth-place finish, and he doubled back to seventh in the 3,000, which was Colorado-heavy.
McIntyre led the Centennial state with a 8:39 clocking, which was just one second ahead of Store and Le Roux, and two ahead of Norman's 8:41.
Editor's Note: We've got a recap of the UW High School Invite coming.
Back in Colorado Cole Sprout made waves Friday night with an impressive 8:37 3,000 at the Let's Get REAL Invite in Colorado Springs. The hot pace brought Edward Rush along with him, as Rush had a big run of his own, running 8:51.
Given the 6,291 feet of elevation, altitude conversions are up for debate - as in how much time to take off, but Sprout would be anywhere under 8:17, and Rush would be under 8:31.
Of additional note, Sprout's 8:37 is the fastest 3,000 run in Colorado over the past decade, and Rush is No. 2.
Off the track Braeden Holcombe and Sadie McMullen made sand waves in the long jump. Holcombe won the event in 23-0 - a Colorado No. 1. He also won the 60 Hurdles and the shot put. Likewise, McMullen went 19-5.
There were some exciting battles in the high country at the Western Colorado HS Open Sunday.
Cook took the W in the 60 in 7.78, Brown took the W in the 200 in 25.91 over Cook, and Burnett took the W in the 400 in 58.81.
Likewise, Keirryse Simpson was the king of the sprints. The Denver East senior dominated the 60 and 200.
Off the track Rhyan Moore went 5-4 to win the high jump in a season best.
