State Meet Results and Photos: Day 1

Day 1 of the 2013 State Meet started off with a bang for HRHS Track. Three field event competitors and our Girls Sprint Medley Relay started first thing at 8:30 a.m. 

Congratulations to:

 Trevor Rex whose 6' 5" high jump took 3rd place.

CC Morgan, whose long jump of 17'4.5 inches earned 8th place and a spot on the podium.

Chuck Puga, whose PR discus throw of 141' 9" moved him up 7 places -- he was seeded 18th and finished 11th.

Our Girls Sprint Medley Relay (Alanes Dynes, Aaliyah Shumpert, Shayli Siegfreid, Macy Kreutz) finished 10th in the prelims, only one spot away from qualifying for finals, with a time of 1:50.83

Just after 9:30, our Boys 4x200 Meter Relay (Jason Phou, Eric Dynes, Josh Kolber, Jalen Kittrell) ran a prelim time of 1:29.4, which qualified them for tomorrow's finals.

By 11 am, Macy Kreutz was running her second 400 meters of the morning. Her 57.89 put her in 12th in the prelims. It's a tough year to run the 400 meters in Colorado. There are a lot of very fast girls, and in many of the last several years, Macy's time would have qualified for finals. 

And all of that happened before noon!

Afternoon events for HRHS included the Paralympic 100 meters and the Boys Long Jump.

Congratulations to:

Andrew Bauer who set a new PR of 21.56 in the Paralympic 100 meters......

.....and won a medal to show for it!

Ben Morgan whose PR-tying long jump of 21' 4" earned him 6th place

Connor Turnage who took 2nd with a jump of 22' 3"

We took several versions of this podium shot. It's not every State Meet you have two athletes from the same team on the podium together for one event! There are a lot more pictures of Day 1. Click here to see them all.
