FORT COLLINS, Colo.--The Colorado State indoor track and field team closed its regular season with a strong showing at two meets they competed in this weekend at the Robert Shine Invite held by the University of Wyoming, and the Twilight Invite hosted by the Colorado School of Mines.

At Wyoming, the men throwers had numerous first-place finishes and personal bests.

"They did ok, we just sent a few athletes to Wyoming," said Head Coach Brian Bedard. "We wanted most of the athletes to rest this weekend."

For the men's shot put, Tyson Williams captured a first place win for the Rams with a mark of 56 feet, 9.50 inches (17.31 meters), Carson Rowley placing sixth with a score of 50-05.50 (15.38m), Alec Pott scoring ninth with a mark of 47-11.75 (14.62m) and Jack White placing eleventh with a mark of 46-01.25 (14.05m).

For the men's weight throw, former athlete Drew Loftin scored first with a mark of 75-07.25(23.04m), Rowley placing seventh with a score of 52-11.50 (16.14m) and Pott placing eighth with a mark of 47-11 (14.60m).

"The Mines meet was optional for the team" said Bedard. "Kirk Cooper wanted to go down there and see if he could hit an NCAA provisional- qualifying mark, which he did in the pole vault."


 

 

Kirk Cooper placed first in the pole vault, with a score of 5.20 meters, and also hit a NCAA-provisional mark.
Up next for the Rams will be the Mountain West Conference championships Thursday through Saturday, hosted by the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

"We're really just trying to rest some kids up and get everyone healthy," said Bedard. "We're going to refine some things at practice but, for the most part, it's just going to be rest and getting everyone ready to go."
