To no one's surprise, Jennifer Celis claimed another track record, winning the 800-meter run Saturday in 2 minutes, 14.7 seconds to win the event at the Frank Woodburn Invitational in Grand Junction. Celis finished 10 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher in the two-lap race.
She is currently ranked first in state 2A competition in the event, and is also ranked first in the 400m dash. But it may be a surprise to learn that Celis' time is the best recorded in the state among all classes this season. According to the website milesplit.com, her time is also the 27th best in the nation, regardless of class.
Natalie Anderson ran a season-best time of 5:18.97 to place second in the 1600m, and along with Celis, Katie Parsons and Sophia Schelle, placed second in the 1600-meter relay.
Also in individual events, Kelli Buhrdorf ran a season-best time of 13.49 to tie for seventh in the 100m dash. Buhrdorf, who shared three points with Rosie Ewert of Crested Butte in the event, was the highest placing 2A runner in the pack. Buhrdorf also ran a 100-meter leg in the 800m medley relay. She and Chase Bizer, Arial Duncan and Katie Parsons placed fifth.
The 3200m team of Mae Anderson, Tiffany Clock, Kenley Derby and Schelle finished fourth.blog comments powered by Disqus
