Harrison sets meet record in 800 sprint medley

Alyssa Evans knows the toll it takes to go from complete elation to anguish in a matter of two hours.

The Harrison relay anchor helped the Panthers win the Class 4A sprint medley after she blew away the field during the final 400-meter leg on their way to setting a 4A meet record, but two hours later she fell to Broomfield's anchor in the 800 relay by 0.23 seconds Friday.

Jalynn Guy, Ashley Register, De'Ajiah Paulk and Evans were still happy to put the Harrison girls' team on center stage.

"We haven't been too amazing as of late, but we still wanted people to notice (Harrison) is getting better," Evans said.

 

Delfeld holds off Carrese

St. Mary's runner Robert Delfeld fought off Dominic Carrese of Fountain Valley to win the Class 3A 800 by 0.66 seconds, in 1:55.32, at the state track meet at Jefferson County Stadium.

Delfled had about a 10-meter lead with 200 meters to go, before the Danes' senior began to close.

"I just needed a little more room and I think I'd have had it," Carrese said. "But he had a great race. He deserves it."

 

Basketball stars from Sand Creek and TCA take titles

Sand Creek's Micheal DeCarmo II and TCA's Hannah Carr only wish they could share their state title with their basketball teammates.

After the Scorpions' boys' and Titans' girls' basketball teams were ousted in the postseason a few months back, basketball stars DeCarmo and Carr regrouped and grabbed state titles at the state track and field meet.

DeCarmo jumped 22 feet, 11/4 inches to take the 4A boys' long jump. And Carr hit a mark of 143-9 to win the Class 3A girls' shot put.

"I wish I could share my title with my basketball teammates," DeCarmo said. "It's a little different winning as an individual."

 

Willis, Harris win field events

The Classical Academy's Andrea Willis had no anxiety, while Sand Creek's Rebecca Harris was biting her nails.

Willis won the Class 3A pole vault by 16 inches, completing a vault of 11-6, while Harris won the long jump by less than an inch at 17-33/4.

(Alli Davis of Durango finished second in the long jump at 17-31/2.)

 

Oh so close for 800 runners

National sensation Elise Cranny of Niwot barely held off Palmer Ridge's Alison Deitsch and Air Academy's Katie Rainsberger in the 4A 800, and Lauren Hamilton couldn't defend her 800 title in 3A.

Cranny won in 2:12.05, followed by Deitsch (2:12.24) and Rainsberger (2:12.92). And Hamilton lost to Estes Park's Kelsi Lasota by 0.88 seconds at 2:20.74.

"That was a crazy finish," Deitsch said. "You'd like to win it, but you can't be too upset when you're going against amazing runners like Elise and Katie."

On the boys' side, Cheyenne Mountain's William Mayhew dropped to third in the 4A finals.
