We've talked about Elise Cranny before. It's just that there's a little more to talk about this time. Cranny won the 800 by three seconds over Claire Green, the 1600 by six seconds over Erin McLaughlin, was part of Niwot's winning SMR8, and was part of Niwot's second-place 4x400. That's a pretty good day. Here's hoping she got all the kinks worked out of her legs this morning.
Khadijah Sayyid won both the 100 and 200. The times for the Peak to Peak senior don't look all that competitive in the 3A ranks at the moment, but Sayyid has some history of coming on strong late in the season. Don't be writing anything about her off yet.
Kelley Robinson cruised to a 13-second in the 3200 as her only individual race of the day. Nederland did, however finish second in the 4x800, and it's difficult to imagine Nederland leaving Robinson off that relay. Monarch, by the way, crushed the 4x800 field in 9:32.90.
Lyons' Nola Basey won the high jump (5-3), triple jump (35-8.75), finished second in the long jump at 16-10, and third in the 200 at 26.53. She was probably seeing the same therapist as Elise Cranny today. This meet has an athlete of the meet award, and I'm kind of hoping they split it between the two.
Proving last week was no fluke, Valarie Allman went deep to the tune of 152-6 to win the discus. Keep that steel tape handy.
A just-too-fast wind erased a set of very nice 100 marks for Ben Meyer, Harrison Einspahr, and Alex Mead. Usually, it's the afternoon that nails the sprinters. It worked the other way around this time. The 200s were wind legal at 21.48 (Meyer), 21.68 (Einspahr), and 21.94 (Mead). They may have to look at resurfacing the center lanes of the track after all that.
If you think 49.40 will win the 2A boys 400, you're probably interested to know that Ryan Boucher of Lyons won the 400. Kirk Webb was winning events at 1:53.99 and 4:21.11. Broomfield went 1-2-3 in the 3200 with Ben Forsee, Ethan Gonzales, and Kory Skattum all under 10:00. Do you think Greg Weich was smiling?
Braden Hitchcock at 38.49 in the 300 hurdlers should have Tim McIntire smiling.
And, before we move on to the next meet, let's take due note of 58-0 and 166-2 for Skyline's Richard Feltenberger.
Whew, what a meet! BoCo never disappoints.
