Monday Morning Recap: Exploding Out Of The Blocks

It's heating up indoors...

There were quite a few new state-leading marks, which makes sense when you consider there were three meets in Colorado over the past week. 

While the coming weeks look fairly quiet in terms of competition in Colorado, this past weekend was quite busy.

Here are the highlights of the highlights...

Giavonna Meeks continued her impressive senior season at the Colorado Mines HS Indoor Series #3 Thursday night. Meeks threw 60-1 in the weight throw for a US No. 1.

Additional state-leading mark on the girl's side came from Rosie Mucharsky, who dropped a CO No. 1 of 5:33 in the mile.

Charles LaFore threw for a CO No. 1 in the shot put of 50-7.5 currently leads the state by over six-feet. He also won the weight throw with a toss of 53-6, which is also a CO No. 1

There was plenty to talk about at the Let's Get REAL Western Open in Gunnison.

Agur Dwol showed that she's ready for the national stage in the throws. Dwol leapt to her second-consecutive personal best - this time in the long jump, landing at US No. 4 of 19-11. She also won the triple jump in 41-7.75, which was just short of her US No.1 mark of 42-0.75. 

Kimora Northrup ran a CO No. 3 of 1:00.27 400, won the 60 Hurdles in 9.13, and finished second to Peyton Garrison in the 200, running 26.33 to Garrison's 26.22.

In the 800 Cadence Lapp dropped a CO No. 1 of 2:22.65, which was just ahead of Julia Rudolph's 2:22.73.

Brian Kerrigan endured Gunnison's very thin air for 16 laps in the 3,200. It has a tendency to feel like fire in the lungs... But, he was rewarded with a CO No. 1 of 10:37.69

Sunday's Martin Luther King Mile High Classic had quite a few stellar performances as well. 

Symone Adams tied her CO No. 3 mark of 7.79 to win the 60, leading six girls under 8-seconds. Adams also finished second in the 200 to Julia Pattison, running 25.53 to Pattison's 25.10 - a CO No. 1 in the event.

In the 400 Kinsey Christianson and Jocelyn Millican dipped under 60-seconds, with Christianson running a state-leading 59.13, while Millican was just a stride back in 59.59.
