SEATTLE, Wash. – The Colorado State track & field team sent a crew of their distance runners to Seattle Friday to participate in the Husky Classic at the University of Washington.
Heuer earned 43rd place overall in the women’s 5000-meter run, competing against a field consisting of national competition. She set a personal record by 25 seconds, clocking in at 17 minutes, 5.25 seconds.
Tavé took 47th place in the women’s 5000-meter run, finishing exactly six seconds behind Heuer with a time of 17:11.25. Tavé bested her fastest 5,000-meter outdoor time by four seconds.
Ben Larson took 35th place in the men's 5,000-meter run with a time of 14:43.95, setting his personal record by seven seconds.
"Overall a solid start. Tomorrow we look to keep the personal bests and all-time CSU top 20 marks coming," said distance coach Art Siemers of Friday's events.
Many other Ram distance runners will compete during the final day of the Husky Classic Saturday, while the rest of the Colorado State track & field team travels to Colorado Springs, Colo., for the Team Challenge at the Air Force Academy.
