BOULDER — Monarch’s Andrew Barlow has gotten used to pleasantly surprising himself over the past year or so of his high school pole vaulting career.

As a junior last season, he shocked himself, along with the rest of Class 5A, when he cleared 16 feet on his first try at the Colorado state championships. The defending state champion hit a new mark at Wednesday’s Boulder City Tri-Meet.

Setting a new personal best, the Coyotes senior cleared 16 feet, 4.75 inches.

“We’ve done a lot of work over the summer and the winter with lifting, running and gymnastics so I got on a bigger pole today and put everything together and jumped higher,” Barlow said. “I’m definitely feeling stronger this year. The ultimate goal is the state record but for right now is to get up to 17 feet.”

The state record of 17-7.5 was set by Aurora Central’s Pat Manson and has stood since 1986. Barlow also won the discus on Wednesday with a throw of 93-04.

“This was the first time I’ve thrown the disc and I managed to let go of a pretty good one and win it, so it was a great meet,” Barlow said.

No stranger to trophies, Barlow knows as well as anyone that winning is often better when there is a trophy at the end.

The Boulder, Fairview and Monarch High School track and field teams have been squaring off against one another at the annual Boulder City Tri-Meet for some time now. Adding a new wrinkle to the meet in 2015, the overall winning teams on both the boys and girls sides left the grounds of Fairview High School with a traveling trophy.

In the first year of the new tradition, it was Monarch that will keep both of the team championship trophies until the three schools reunite again in 2016. The Monarch boys scored 103 points, far ahead of second-place Fairview. The Monarch girls scored 82 points to outpace second-place Fairview’s 68.5.

Monarch’s Chloe Bernard won the girls open 100 (26.81), Elissa Mann won the 400 (59.60) and Karina Mann won the 1,600 (5:21.84).

For Fairview, which placed second in both the girls and boys team scoring, senior Calvin Munson highlighted the Knights’ evening, sweeping the open 100 (11.33), 200 (22.74) and 400 (50.14) races.

“This is a really fun meet to run at because it’s Boulder, Fairview and Monarch, so it’s a big rivalry with lots of fun people,” Munson said. “I just wanted to go out there, run fast, have fun and go home a winner. I ran around my PRs and I felt really good in my 200.”

For the Fairview girls, Hannah Freeman won the 800 (2:20.05) and Heather Betz won both the 100 (16.95) and 300 (51.56) hurdles.

Boulder’s Jamie Hegg won the 100 (12.98) and Maddy Selby won both the discus (70-06.5) and the shot put (29-01). Boulder’s quartet of Satchel Caldwell, Luke Zacharias, Isaac Fournier and Eli Fournier also won the boys 3,200 relay with a time of 8:36.58.

The Boulder girls won last year’s meet by one point over Monarch. The Monarch boys won last year’s meet by eight points over Boulder.
