We're barely a month into 2019, and already Colorado has proven to be home to several national caliber long jumpers.

Improvement usually come in small increments, but that's not entirely the case for Elizabeth senior Mason Anthony, who not only leads Colorado with the No. 6 mark in the country, but his two-foot, one-and-a-quarter inch is beyond anyone within the Top 10, or even the Top 20 in Colorado.

A year ago he went 21-8 indoors, which bodes well within the state, but his 23-9 Wednesday night is the second jump within a week that launched him into a national-caliber long jumper. 

Mason Anthony has made some serious gains in the long jump this season.

In terms of numbers, the long jump looks eerily similar to last year, only last year at this time Colorado didn't have a jumper beyond 23 feet, and Anthony has already surpassed the mark twice in the past week.

Jeordon Holmes is already inching towards his outdoor PR from 2018. While he did not compete indoors last year, he did go 22-2.75 outdoors. Likewise, Teagan Mayes has already surpassed his outdoor PR, going 20-11.7 indoors this season. 

And speaking of making gains, keep an eye on Beckham Argosino

The eighth-grader has already added nearly three feet to his personal best this year.
