Tight Battles At The Colorado State T&F Champs: The 2A Recap

On the girl's side of the competition two stood out: Mikayla Hutchison, and Jordan Burnett

The two first met in the 100 final Saturday morning. And in this meeting Hutchison came away with the state title. The Banning Lewis Prep senior won the event in 12.53. Burnett was a close-second in 12.62.

Several hours later Burnett turned the tables on Hutchison in the 200. The South Park senior ran 25.29 to Hutchison's 25.79. 

And that was actually Burnett's second state title of Saturday - she dominated the 400 in 56.91.

The distance events saw three separate winners across the 800, 1,600, and 3,200. Though, there was one runner who never finished outside the top-two, and that was Eowyn Dalbec - she endured the challenging triple.
