LAKEWOOD — Even though it was not what he expected, Alamosa High School senior Samuel Bilderbeck has a second chance as he finished second in the Class 3A pole vault on the first day of the Colorado High School State Track and Field Championships here at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood.

Bilderbeck, last year’s state champion in the event, cleared 13 feet, 9 inches. He entered the competition as the No. 2 ranked vaulter after he cleared 15 feet in last week’s Intermountain League Championships. The winner of the event was Sterling senior Truitt Perrish, who cleared 15, 1 inch to set a new Class 3A record.

Other results by Alamosa include junior Brianna Apodoca posted a time of 12:49.09 to finish in 13th place in the 3,200 meter run.

In the 110 meter hurdles, Bilderbeck advanced to the finals with a time of 15.45, the second fastest time. Hunter McDaniel did not advance with his time of 16.96.

In the other preliminary relay races, Alamosa failed to advance to the finals of the 800 sprint medley, where they finished in 13th with a time of 1:57.13, and the 4x200 meter relay, where they finished 1:50.97 and were just a spot from qualifying to the finals.

The boys’ 4x200 meter relay team finished in 16th place with a time of 1:35.47.

The only finals relay was the 4x800 meter relay, where Alamosa entered the state meet ranked No. 18. As the race panned out, senior Karlee Smith went out and posted a personal record best leg of 2:28 to help her team finish in 16th with a time of 10:39.24. The boys’ squad took 18th place with a time of 8:52.91.

The Centauri Falcons also did not advance in their only preliminary relay as their girls 4x200 meter relay team finished 16th overall with a time of 1:52.19.

Their girls 4x800 meter relay team did compete but they barely missed out on the medal stand as they finished 12th with a time of 10:18.80. Right after that race, their boys took to the track and they finished 16th in 8:48.09.

The only other 3A athlete to participate was Monte Vista’s Matt Barnes in the discus. He was able to get a good throw to advance to the finals. Unfortunately he finished tenth with a throw of 130 feet, 2 inches.

In Class 2A, Sangre de Cristo and Del Norte had some success. Sangre de Cristo senior Kathryn New has set herself up to be on the awards podium four times. She made it once on Thursday as she finished fifth in the high jump by clearing 5 feet, 1 inch.

She also made it into the finals of the 100 meter dash, where she posted a time of 12.92 to take the third fastest time into the finals. She will be joined by teammate Marissa Storey, who posted a time of 12.82, the second fastest time in the prelims. New was the 2012 state champion in the event.

In the 200 meter dash, New finished with a time of 25.87 while Marissa Storey qualified for the finals with a time of 26.56, also.

New’s final advancement came in the 400 meter dash where she posted a time of 58.96.

In the 4x200 meter relay on the girls’ side, Sangre de Cristo (1:52.17) and Del Norte (1:52.19) advanced to the finals in the eighth and ninth spots, respectively.

The Sanford Indians qualified to state in the boys’ 4x200, however, their time of 1:36.92 was only good for 16th place in the event.

In the 100 meter hurdles, Sanford senior Kelli Canty advanced to the finals with the sixth fastest time in the relays of 16.87. Sangre de Cristo’s Heather Dieckman did not advance with her time of 17.74.

Chance Canty did not advance in the 110 hurdles where he ran 19.22.

Sargent’s 4x800 meter relay team finished 14th with a time of 10:51.74.

Sangre de Cristo’s 4x800 team received a medal as they finished fourth in the boys’ 4x800 meter relay with a time of 8:29.81 while Del Norte’s team finished tenth with a time of 8:46.83.

In Class 1A, Centennial’s lone qualifiers, freshman Samantha Carson, made the medal stand with a time of 14:06.64 to take ninth place.

Moffat’s Megan Black finished sixth in the shot put.

Friday will be the second day of the 3-day event that is the State Track and Field Championships.
