In this week's edition of Future Stars, we'll take a look at recent standout freshmen performances.
On that note...
Colorado: meet Ka'Moyyah Allen.
The Cherokee Trail freshman chopped off two seconds from her 400 personal best this past weekend. Allen finished second at the Aurora City Championships in 58.94. That currently leads the class, and is No. 11 across all grades and classifications. Add that her time is currently No. 1 among freshmen and sophomores.
She's inching her way down in time and up in rankings with each outing - she ran 1:01.14 in her first 400 this season, then took another second off with a 1:00.53 a week later. And of course she skipped 59-seconds entirely.
Allen: welcome to the Sub-60 club!
Additionally, she's no stranger to the track - her first MileSplit performance dates to January 10, 2015, where she doubled with a 1:01.32 300, and a 2:23.44 600.
Ella Hagen has run personal bests nearly every time she's stepped on the track this season. She won the 3,200 at the Erie Tiger Twilight in 11:12.25, which is the fourth-fastest time run in Colorado across all grades and classifications.
Tatum Berg chopped a whopping 19-seconds off her 3,200 PR at the Altitude Twilight - she finished second 11:12.49.
Peyton Sommers sliced nearly half-a-second off both his 100, and his 200 at the Aurora City Championships. The Cherokee Trail freshman ran 11.40 in the 100, and 22.44 in the 200 - both times lead the freshmen class.
Cole Mazurana slashed a staggering 10-seconds off his 1,600 PR at the Erie Tiger Invitational. The Windsor freshman ran 4:35.44 - this leads the class by four-seconds.
Kaeli Powe took another half-second off her 100H PR at the Aurora City Championships, running 15.77.
And on that note, I'm out of synonyms for the word chop.
