Duplicate marks below indicate that the results from this meet show both prelims and finals results. I doubt any of the athletes in question threw exactly the same marks in finals as in prelims, but stranger things have happened.
Sierra Williams and Rebecca Deal of Cedaredge took out their own meet marks in the 100 and long jump, respectively. Hotchkiss's Jennifer Celis took out her own teammate's meet record in the 800 by about eight seconds. A 2:16.65 at this point in the season should start invoking some memories of Sam Berggren in the 3A ranks. Maybe we won't be missing Berggren as much as we thought. Rifle's Joey Kuheim added a full four feet to the meet's shot put mark, sending the ball to 40-10.5. More on 3A throws later, but as good as Kuheim's throw was, she's not the 3A leader in that event. And, if you're trying to do some advance handicapping of the state meet, you'd best pay attention to what the Cedaredge girls 4x200 is up to. Right now, times are dropping like shot puts for the Bruins and they're about to go through the 1:45 floor. In 3A terms, that's Loveland kind of good.
The boys? Rifle seemed to be carrying a lighter load at this meet. You won't find Andrew Proebstle in the results, and it appears Ryan Moeller was well below the recent complement of four events per meet.. Rifle and Coal Ridge continue to post very impressive 4x400 times. It would appear Rifle ran 3:27.05 without Andrew Proebstle. That warrants a shout out to Ryan Moeller, Tanner Rust, Aaron Wagler, and Taylor Webb. I've already had one 3A coach tell me, in an admiring sort of way, that he won't be sad when Rifle goes back to 4A next year.
Rifle's Taylor Webb and Cedaredge's Dante Markley were in a near dead heat for the 110 hurdles title. Both figure to make state finals at the pace they're on. Not many people on the western slope know what their front sides look like, though the dorsal view is perhaps a bit too familiar
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Colten Deters had another nice day in the rings, with combined distances of over 205 feet.
