Monday Morning Recap: It Gets REAL In Colorado

The final week of indoor track and field in Colorado did not disappoint! 

It was the last chance to shake up the Colorado indoor state rankings, and quite a few athletes took the opportunity to their full advantage. 

Let's get in to it, here are the highlights of the highlights... 

We'll start with the biggest show on the western slope - the Western Colorado University High School Indoor Open

Charles LaFore capped Colorado's indoor season with a Colorado No. 1 in the weight throw. LaFlore tossed 54-9 to win the event over Blaine Fisher's 50-4. LaFlore also won the shot put in 52-2.5. Meanwhile Ben Kirk starred on the track, running a CO No. 2 of 22.27 to win the 200. And moving way up in distance, the 3,200 was a battle - and not just with Gunnison's thin, thin air, but between Tyler Stogsdill and Jackson Baker. 16 laps could barely separate the two - Stogsdill won the event in 10:19.65 to Baker's 10:19.86.

Elizabeth Johnson swept the 60 and the 200 - she picked up two top-six marks, while Tristian Spence swept the distance events, running an impressive CO No. 1 of 11:57 in the 3,200.

In Colorado Springs there were plenty of fireworks at the Let's Get REAL Invitational.

The boys 800 saw the top-nine fastest times in Colorado this indoor season. Drew Costelow topped them all with a 1:55.22. Keenan Urdiales was second in 1:57.43, while the next six dipped under two-minutes.

Doubling upwards in distance Tyler Nord ran away with the mile in a CO No. 1 of 4:26.13. Similar to the 800, the mile saw the top-seven times run, as the top-seven ran under 4:39.

Sticking with the theme of state-leading marks, Frederick Ambrose ran a CO No. 1 of 10:15.21 to win the 3,200, while Carsen Bruns and PJ Robinson remained on fire, both were clocked at 7.90 the 60 Hurdles - that's a CO No. 1, and a US No. 9. 

Meanwhile Osita Agno leapt to a CO No. 1 of 43-5 to win the triple jump, while Alec Falk tossed a CO No. 1 of 52-10.5 to win the shot put.

Six state-leading marks, and that was just the boys...

Riley Stewart torched the field, and the track, running a CO No. 1 of 2:12.89 in the 800, while Bethany Michalak did the same in the mile, running a CO No. 1 of 5:05.23. Brooke Wilson was just seven-seconds back in 5:12 for a CO No. 2. Meanwhile Fabiola Belibi ran 8.91 to win the 60H - that's a CO No. 2, only behind her own 8.59, and Casia Provencal ran a CO No. 2 of 7.72 in the 60.

Agur Dwol swept the horizontal jumps, winning the long jump with a leap of 19-9.5, and the triple jump in 40-9 - that's her fifth-consecutive time over 40-feet this indoor season.

Who's ready for outdoor?
