COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Colorado State track & field team set several personal bests in the heptathlon and pentathlon Thursday at the Cadet Field House.
Multi-events coach Tim Cawley was impressed with the Rams’ performance so early in the season.
“It went well today,” commented Cawley. “They had a lot of PR’s, and in the events they didn’t PR in, they learned quite a bit from the experience. All in all, I was proud of them. The men have put themselves in a great position for tomorrow.”
Justin Green sits in third place after four events, 42 points behind Joshua Weirich, and 315 points behind leader, Dalton Chase, both from BYU. Green won the high jump, clearing a height of 6 feet, 6.75 inches. The junior recorded a personal record in the shot put and the 60-meter dash, with marks of 38-4.25, and 6.80 seconds, respectively.
Teammate Josh Cogdill will enter Day 2 of the heptathlon in fifth place. The Longmont native’s day was highlighted by a third-place finish in the shot put, throwing a distance of 42-0.5, a career-high. Cogdill also set a personal best in the 60 meters, clocking 7.20.
Rounding out the Rams’ field in the heptathlon on Day 1 was senior Colton Grandbouche. He is currently in ninth place with a four-event score of 2,613. Grandbouche also set personal records in the long jump (19-11) and the shot put (35-4.75).
Jessica Green placed ninth out of 23 women in the pentathlon with a score of 3,273, a new personal best. Helping her to her new career high score was a fourth-place finish in the 60-meter hurdles. She clocked 8.98, also a personal best.
Monica Franco earned 13th place with a score of 3,118. She set a personal record in the shot put with a throw of 32-11.25. Freshman Isobel Brown finished just eight points behind Franco with a score of 3,110.
Colorado State’s men will conclude the heptathlon tomorrow. The final three events will begin at 9 a.m. MT, followed by the AFA Invitational starting at 12:30 with the men’s weight throw.
