Mile High Magic At The 24th Mullen Invitational

Casia Provencal had a busy Saturday.

The Ralston Valley senior battled with Valor Christian's Peyton Holmes in the 100 and 200. Holmes took a one-hundredth-of-second victory in the 100, running 12.84 to Provencal's 12.85, though Provencal turned the tables in the 200, which she won in 25.63 to Holmes' 25.86.

Provencal also took a tight 100H victory over Kimora Northrup, running 14.89 to Northrup's 14.95.

Northrup wouldn't be denied a W, however. The Niwot junior torched the final 150 of the 300H to win the event with a CO No. 1 of 43.87.

On the topic of torching, the 400 was another hotly contested event. Pine Creek's Callie Fuhr kicked hard over the final 150 to down a stellar field and win the event in 58.75. Gianna Kirking and Malia Heien also dipped under 60-seconds, running 59.38, and 59.51.

Doubling up in distance, Emma Stutzman set a blazing pace in the 800, though it was Brooke Wilson's final 250 that would decide this race. Wilson ran 2:14.32, while teammate Keeghan Edwards ran 2:16.96 for second, and Stutzman held on for third in 2:18.53.

Several hours earlier Wilson and Edwards battled in the 1,600. This time Wilson was the pace-maker. The Valor duo battled into the final 100 meters with Edwards winning the event in CO No. 2 of 4:57.48, which was just ahead of Wilson's 4:59.21.

Meanwhile, Lauren Boutelle paced her way through the opening laps of the 3,200 before dropping the hammer. The Pine Creek junior ran away in the final laps to win the event in 11:50 - a seven-second victory.

In the high jump Banning Lewis Prep's Jaysa Even cleared 5-3, and the competition to win the event. Air Academy freshman Tatyonna Brown was a close second with a 5-2 clearance.

And on the topic clearing the competition, Victoria Sanders got big air to win the pole vault with an 11-0 personal best. She won the event by over a foot.

In the throws Colorado's best reigned supreme. 

Giavonna Meeks won the discus with a CO No. 1 of 150-9, and the shot put with a toss of 42-01.
