Gavin Shurr Blazes A 20.84 US No. 2 200m

I'd said it before: put Jeremy Dodson's (outdoor) 200 Colorado state record of 20.70 on alert - Gavin Schurr is coming for it. 

Schurr blazed a big personal best of 20.84 200 at the fourth edition of the American Track League's indoor series in Fayetteville, Arkansas Sunday afternoon.

As incredible of a feat that it was, Schurr was actually the runner-up in the race - Florida's Jaylen Slade took the victory in a new high school national record of 20.63.

Schurr's 20.84 runner-up finish is the fourth all-time in the high school record books. Additionally, the Fairview senior is one of 11 high schoolers to break the 21-second barrier indoors - ever.

While Schurr's time is the fastest by a Coloradan indoors, it's tied No. 4 all-time in Colorado for the event - indoors or out. 

For anyone looking for motivation - Schurr ran 24.00 (indoor 200) as a freshman. 22.47 (indoor) as a sophomore. And 21.57 (indoor) as a junior.

Now he's the fourth-fastest indoor 200 high school runner, ever.

To repeat the first line of this article - I've said it before: we've got a lot to be excited about for the 2021 outdoor track and field season...
