Determined to get out on time for an alternate sporting event, it was the Great Wall of Pueblo West Varsity early in the girls open race.
For those of us at the meet, it didn't take too long to figure out that Pueblo West, Fort Morgan, and probably a couple small schools as well were running their varsity teams in the open race. Actually, Fort Morgan coach Paula Hough told me they were before the racing even began.
Never mind the reasons for that. It is what it is, but we can put the pieces back together again with a full meet merge. In fairness, though, things were a little warmer for those running in the open races than for those in the varsity races later in the afternoon. So, perhaps a small adjustment to what you see below would be in order.
As a bonus feature of doing a full meet merge, any individual athletes who were in the open races yet ended up with a top-seven time for their team on the day also show up in the full meet merge.
In any case, you will see below the full meet merge for the boys (and please note that the race distance was 4000 meters, not the usual 5000):
