Pocatello, Idaho – Arria Minor, a sophomore from Denver, won the girls’ 200 meters the 2017 Simplot Games. Minor’s time of 23.65 is the fastest time in the United States this year. Minor also placed third in the girls’ 60-meter dash with a time of 7.49.
This is Minor’s first time at Simplot Games, and said it was scary running against upperclassman and also a humbling experience.
“This was the time I was hoping for,” Minor said. “I didn’t do as well as I wanted to in the 60, and was hoping to bring it back.” She did, with a gold medal time.
More than 2,200 athletes came from across the U.S., Canada, and Australia to participate in the 39th 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.
