Elise Cranny chasing Jordan's time in Payton Jordan Invite 1500 Brandon Miles May 1, 2014

Only two other girls have ever run faster in US high school history at 1500 meters than Niwot High School senior Elise Cranny. Mary Cain and Jordan Hasay. While Mary Cain's 4:04.62 national record looks to be safe for the time being, the #2 all-time ranked performer at the distance in Jordan Hasay at 4:14.50 from 2008 seems ripe for the picking for the current US leader at 800 meters in Cranny. 

Cranny does it again - One day later - 2:04 800 at Mt. SAC Relays Brandon Miles Apr 20, 2014

One day after winning section 1 of the college/open women 800 meter run at the Mt. SAC Relays in California with a new US #1 time of 2:06.61, Niwot High School (Colorado) senior Elise Cranny was back in action at the 800 meter distance again, but this time racing against the best of the best at the meet among pros and collegiates in the Saturday night invitational division. Cranny improved upon her US leading time in a 24 hour span by nearly a fully two seconds with a time of 2:04.89.

Competing in section 1 (seeded section) of the college/open women's 800 meter run at the Mt. SAC Relays in California on Friday afternoon, Niwot High School (CO) junior Elise Cranny took it to a field of older and more experience runners with a 2:06.61 victory, which also moves her to the very top of the high school girls national outdoor leaderboard.

Cross Country Preview: 4A Boys (updated 07/22) Alan Versaw Jul 18, 2008

The face of 4A boys cross country is as much changed as any classification in the state. Battle Mountain is back to defend its repeat state championship, but the odds against it seem long. Traditional power Liberty has departed to 5A, but for anyone looking to take advantage of Liberty's departure, there's the troubling little issue of Wheat Ridge coming down from 5A. Nature, we are told, abhors a vacuum.   At left, Falcon's dynamic duo of Wes Rickman and Kevin Johnson in their accustomed position--out in front.
