Competing in section 1 (seeded section) of the college/open women's 800 meter run at the Mt. SAC Relays in California on Friday afternoon, Niwot High School (CO) junior Elise Cranny took it to a field of older and more experience runners with a 2:06.61 victory, which also moves her to the very top of the high school girls national outdoor leaderboard. Cranny won the New Balance Nationals Indoor title in the 800 with a lifetime best of 2:06.47 at the Armory in New York City despite being her only race of indoor season and had recently turned in a 2:08 800 outdoors at altitude in her homestate of Colorado last weekend before making the trip to Southern California.
