This Day In History: Arria Minor Claims 100 State Record

On This Day In History, one year ago today to be exact, Arria Minor etched her name into the Colorado record books for the last time. 

The date was May 18, 2019. 

It already sounds so long ago...

So much has changed since then - for starters, there was a track season... You could dine in restaurants after meets... You could sing "We Are The Champions" on the bus ride home...

The stage was set for a great storybook ending: Arria Minor running a state record in the final 100 race of her Colorado high school career.

And that's exactly what happened.

Minor tied Caryl Smith's 32 year-old state record of 11.31 in the 100 finals. The performance checked off the final box within the sprint events, giving the Denver East senior every state record from the 100 up to the 400.

Her name now appears on the Colorado record list three times - which is more than anyone else.

It was fourth consecutive state title in the event. And she wasn't done - she doubled back to add state title No. 10 (and her fourth in the event) in the 200, winning in 23.10 a few hours later.
