another altitude (approx. 1600m) HS #1...
- Marybeth Sant - 11.25 (1.8), in second was soph. Alleandra Watt 11.41
Note: Sant did hold her own in the adidas Dream 100 a week or two ago, barely losing to then #1 Ky Westbrook.
- Watt later won the 200 in 23.67 (1.8)... as a soph, she's also run a 53.78 400m

The Portland Track Festival will probably get its own thread later in the week, but there is some HS-specific competition included that is worth mentioning here. In addition to Mary Cain's entry in the 5k, Elise Cranny, Alexa Efraimson, Katie Knight & Amy-Eloise Neale are also slated to compete.

Meet site here, but as of now no other info on entries:

#4 or #5 on the all-time HS (depending on how you look at it) decathlon score by Wolf Mahler at the Great Southwest Classic - 7420 points with HS implements (I believe 7065 with junior implements). Heading to Texas next year, another promising decathlete for the Longhorns.

Portland Track Festival, 8 June

women's 1500 high performance
Elise Cranny 4:15.86
Alexa Efraimson 4:16.00 PB

I think it's the case that Cranny had already become #3 a-t HS at this distance; this would make Efraimson #4 on the a-t list.

Reading today's article via T&FN on Kansas' Lindsay Vollmer (NCAA Heptathlon Champ), there was mention of a local high school junior who's leaning toward the multi-events, Alexa Harmon-Thomas.
http://www2.kusports.com/news/2013/jun/09/opinion-kansas-lindsay-vollmer-multiple-threat/

Alexa won the recent Kansas HS State titles in 100H (14.11), 300H (42.70), LJ (19-5)...
She also has marks of HJ (5-10.5), 200 (25.09), 800 (2:28.43), JT (82-7.75), SP (32-9.25)
Her best marks already add up to a respectable heptathlon score of 5257, and she just won the Great Southwest Heptathlon with 5158 points... maybe another Jayhawk multi-eventer in the making...
