Colorado 2A State Recap: Cedaredge Dominates Girls Team Race

Kylee Terry came, saw, and conquered in the sprints.

The Cedaredge junior won the 100 in 12.75, which was just ahead of DaySpring Christian Academy's Eboselulu Omofoma, who finished second in 12.82.

Terry and Omofoma met again several hours later in the 200, and the result was the same, with Terry running 25.72 to Omofoma's 26.02.

Omofoma would've leave Jeffco without gold, but we'll come back to that...

Terry ran away with the 400 in dominating fashion, running 58.47, while Brynlyn Owens and Kaitlyn Pearson made a race of it for the runner-up spot, which Owens took in 1:00.18 to Pearson's 1:00.19.

It looks like there's a dominating figure on the rise in the distance events. We could see four years of Jessica Black!

The Cedaredge freshman absolutely dominated the mid-distance events, running 2:17.79 in the 800, and 5:08.94 in the 1,600. Colorado Springs Christian Academy's Elle Stevens tallied two runner-ups to Black, running 2:24.62 in the 800, and 5:18.08 in the 1,600.

Stevens tripled over the span of the four days, and made sure not to leave Lakewood without gold - she won the 3,200 state title in a personal best of 11:25.

Back to Eboselulu Omofoma...

The DaySpring Christian sophomore won the 100H in 15.32 over Cedaredge's Megan Jenkins, who finished second in 15.82.

The two met once more several hours later Sunday, and this time the roles were reversed. Jenkins won the 300H state title in 44.72, which was just ahead of Omofoma's 44.80.

In the 4x100 Ellicott and Hoehne took the race down to the line, with Ellicott taking the state title in 50.78 to Hoehne's 50.86.

That wasn't the only close race for Hoehne - they came out on top of the 4x200 by half-a-second, running 1:48.03. They also finished third in the Sprint Medley behind state champions Yuma, and runner-ups Dayspring Christian Academy.

Cedaredge capped their big weekend with a dominating victory in the 4x400, running 4:00.

Likewise, Colorado Springs Christian ran away with a stellar 2A No. 1 of 10:16 4x800 clocking. Banning Lewis Prep took second in 10:28, while Golden View Classical Academy was third in 10:33.

Jaysa Even capped her senior year with her best long jump performance. She won the state title with a 17-1.25 leap.

The triple jump came down to the inches, with Alison Rajzer winning the title with a leap of 34-10. Aileen Gutierrez-Hermosillo and Hannah Grover both leapt to 34-7.

In the high jump Eboselulu Omofoma picked up the first state title of her week, clearing 5-5. Annika McKown and Hannah Search both cleared 5-3.

Platte Canyon swept the top-two spots of the pole vault, with Hannah Search winning the event in a clearance of 10-5. Teammate  Hannah Grover cleared 10-2.

The discus was another hotly contested event that came down to less-than-a foot difference between state champ and runner-up. Lyons junior Gemma Powell claimed the state title, tossing 119-8. Lauren Herman was a close second in 118-10. 

Cedaredge dominated the overall team competition, tallying 118 points. Dayspring Christian Academy took second with 71 points, while Colorado Springs Christian finished third with 48.
