COLORADO SPRINGS – The times keep ‘a changin’ for the Summit High School track runners. That is, they’re getting lower.And on that note, the Tiger jumpers and throwers are also improving. Proof of that came in Summit’s showing at Liberty’s Lancer Invitational in Colorado Springs over the weekend.No Summit competitor did better than Jenya Berino’s and Charles Koenig’s eighth-place finishes, but they all showed promise. The freshman Berino led the two-mile run for a while before finishing with the second pack, and the senior Koenig finished with a 5’6″ high jump, which tied four others.John Koop placed ninth in the shot put, and Nadi DeJulio finished 10th in the girls high jump (4’4″).Among the rest of Summit’s athletes, co-head coaches Kristy McClain and Rob Royer said these Tigers performed particularly well: Katie Sodergren (triple jump, 13th place, 28’7″); Kelsey Prim (discus, 16th, season-best 73’8″); girls 800-meter relay (Madeline Child, Catherine Clark, Gill Montgomery, DeJulio); Ben Holland (1,600-meter run, 5 minutes, 36 seconds); Kelsey Roe (shot put, 22’7″); boys 1,600 relay (Stephan Collard, Kevin Coleman, Charles Keeling and Holland); girls 1,600 relay (Mallory Clark, Amy Secor, Child and Sodergren); girls 3,200 relay (Mallory Clark, Morgan Major, Sodergren and Berino); and Koenig (300 hurdles).The coach McClain said Mallory Clark’s 2:42 split in the girls 3,200 relay stood out among the runners.Summit took part in a triangular meet against Englewood and Elizabeth on Tuesday.
