Pocatello, Idaho- Tara Richmond, a senior from Long Beach, Calif., leaped past the field and the 5’8” bar to stand atop the podium at the 32nd annual Simplot Games.

“I’ve always enjoyed Simplot,” Richmond said.  “I find Pocatello extremely peaceful. So to win in my last year is really exciting.”

More than 1,800 athletes came from across the U.S. and Canada to participate in the 32nd annual Simplot Games. Simplot Games remains the nation’s premier high school indoor track and field event. Sponsored by the J.R. Simplot Company since 1979, the Simplot Games are held at Idaho State University’s Holt Arena in Pocatello, Idaho.
