Fort Collins’ Lauren Gregory was all-state in the 5A 3,200. Poudre’s Carly Paul was all-state in the 5A high jump. Rocky Mountain’s Carly Lester repeated as all-state in 5A 300 hurdles.

Poudre’s Spencer Long was all-state in the 5A 300 hurdles. Fossil Ridge’s Tyler Russell was an all-state high jumper in 5A. Liberty Common’s Nico Forcatto was all-state in the 2A 400, and Resurrection Christian’s Cole Watson was all-state in the 2A 300 hurdles.
