Monarch senior Julia Pattison won the 100, 200, and finished second in the 400 at the Broomfield Shootout.
Now it's on.
Like, really on.
The third week of Colorado track and field season was more than revealing. State-leading marks were plentiful across all classifications.
The warm-ups are over now, we're in full stride...
Let's get into it, here are the highlights of highlights.
We'll start at the Grizzly Invitational, where DaySpring Academy sophomore Eboselulu Omofoma leapt to a 2A No. 1 of 5-4 to win the high jump. The defending state champ added a half-inch to her personal best. Add that DaySpring Academy dropped two 2A state leading marks in the relays - a 1:54.93 clocking in the Sprint Medley, and a 1:54.74 in the 4x200. And on the topic of state-leading marks, Northridge's Savanna Amack leapt to 36-4.5 in the triple jump for a 3A No. 1.
Three-time defending 3A state champ Peyton Garrison ran her first lap around the track this season at the North Fork Invitational. Garrison torched a 57.71 to win the event. Add that it's over two-seconds ahead of her 2021 opener, and a 3A No. 1 by three-seconds. And Garrison wasn't the only one from Coal Ridge firing on all cylinders - their SMR squad ran 1:54.65 to win the event in a 3A No. 1. And keeping with the theme of state-leading marks, Alison Rajzer won the triple jump in 36-6 for a 2A No. 1.
Meanwhile Bryant Schoenthal starred at the Yuma Early Qualifier. The Yuma senior won the shot put with a massive PR of 53-5.5 to win the event in a 2A No. 1, and he won the discus with a toss of 162-5 for a 2A No. 2.
