The eight Colorado State student-athletes at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships will have to wait one more day to compete. Severe weather in Austin, Texas, delayed the championship.

Fans and competitors were evacuated from Mike A. Myers Stadium three times because of lightning nearby, and a constant - often heavy - rain drenched the track and those trying to compete there.

A new schedule is supposed to be posted on ncaasports.com within the next few hours. Junior Cristina Gourdin and the rest of the heptathles did begin competition today, with Gourdin posting a 15.29 in the 100 meter hurdles to begin the seven-event competition.
