FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State will host a pair of track and field meets this weekend, as the Rams will welcome some of the top teams in the region to the Jack Christiansen Track.
On Thursday and Friday, CSU will host the Glenn Morris Multi-Event meet, which will showcase the women’s heptathlon event. The action will begin at 10 a.m. on Thursday and Friday with the competition concluding on Friday afternoon.
On Saturday, the Rams will host their largest meet of the season when roughly 15 teams take part in the Jack Christiansen Invite. Field events will begin on Saturday at 10 a.m., with the exception of the hammer throw, which will be held on Friday afternoon due to space limitations.
The running events will also begin at 10 a.m. and are scheduled to run until approximately 5 p.m. Admission is free to all events.
In addition, several of the Rams’ top athletes will head to Eugene, Ore., for the Oregon Relays. The two-day meet will run Friday and Saturday at the historic Hayward Field. Six of CSU’s nine athletes that have posted regional-qualifying times/marks this season are expected to compete at Oregon.
