Colorado 4A Region 4: Shorten, Ewert Run Away With Titles

Jackson Shorten waited. 

The Mountain View senior hovered within the tight pack consisting of Longmont's Connor McCormickAndreas O'Malley, and Dominic Warner, and Erie's Evan Kraus halfway through Colorado 4A Region 4 Championships. 

In this star-studded field, not only would strategy come into play, but so would conservation - next week's Big Dance in Colorado Springs weighed heavy on his mind, and Shorten didn't want to waste any more effort than he needed to.

So he waited. 

And he waited. 

And then with just one mile of real estate beneath his feet to finish, he dropped the hammer.
