LINCOLN, Neb. - Junior Trevor Brown impressed everyone at the Devaney Center Saturday, taking second place in the final of the men's 60 meter hurdles and tying his own personal, school, and conference record with a time of 7.88 seconds. His time qualifies for the 18th best in Division I this year. He was not the only Ram to tie or set a personal record as the Colorado State track & field team wrapped up the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational.
Holly Keeper and Kaitlin Hanenburg, each running in their first meet of the season, both set personal records in the mile run with times of 4 minutes, 56.19 seconds and 4 minutes, 56.27 seconds, respectively. Keeper took third place while Hanenburg finished directly behind her in fourth place.
Men's 800 meter runners Seth Butler and Alex Balsiger each ran for in their first meets of the season as well, clocking in at 1:53.01 and 1:54.71, respectively. Ben Larson set a personal record in the men's 3000 meter run, taking second place with a time of 8:23.79. Jennifer Tavé ran the women's 3000 meter run in 10:06.36, taking fifth place.
The throwers continued their 2013 success, notching multiple top five finishes. Kiah Hicks tossed a monster throw in the shot put with a 51'9.25" mark for fifth place. She set a personal record and holds the highest mark in the conference for the women's shot put this season. Freshman Tyler Schultz continued to impress, throwing 57'6.5" in the men's shot put to earn fifth place.
Other notable performances included Ashley Reid's seventh place performance in the high jump. She jumped 5 feet, 7 inches in just her second meet as a Ram.
The team took advantage of great facilities and national level competition at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. The high level of competition and intense atmosphere will help prepare us for the Mountain West Conference Championships," said Colorado State distance coach Art Siemers following the meet.
The Rams will next get a look at national competition in Seattle, Wash., at the Husky Invitational, which takes place on Feb. 8-9. A handful of athletes will also compete at the Colorado School of Mines Twilight Open on Feb. 8th and the Team Challenge in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Feb. 9th.
