Anderson’s jump off the line wasn’t picture perfect but he had plenty of time to make up for it.

“I wasn’t the first one to jump the first hurdle,” said Anderson. “I actually knock it over completely but I knew I had four more hurdles to make up for it.”

More than 2,100 athletes have come from across the U.S., Canada, and Australia to participate in the 38th 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.
