COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Colorado State wrapped up a successful weekend at the Mountain West Indoor Track & Field Championships Saturday at the Cadet Field House.

The men's squad compiled a team score of 133, improving two spots in the standings from last season's conference meet, finishing second to New Mexico. The women finished fourth, a three-spot improvement from last year with a team score of 67. The Lobos won both the men's and women's team championships.

Head Coach Brian Bedard was impressed with the Rams' performance and has high hopes for the future.

"I'm really proud of how the ream competed throughout the meet," said Bedard. "We were `Ram Tough' from start to finish. We had highlights in several events today, and our freshmen stepped up, having a huge impact on our team during the meet. Our women are way ahead where they were last year, placing higher in a much tougher Mountain West. The men are very close to winning a title."

Senior Trevor Brown won his fourth consecutive MW title in the 60-meter hurdles, tying his personal-record 7.77 seconds (altitude converted time) in the finals, beating his closest competition by .14 seconds. Sam Little took third in the race with a time of 8.08.

Brown also ran in the 200-meter dash, finishing fifth with a time of 21.79. In the women's 200, freshman Emily Romo earned a spot on the podium with a time of 24.43.

Romo was also responsible for the first leg of the 4x440-yard relay in which the Rams took third. The squad of Romo, Abby Simpson, Mariah Witt and Amanda Lark clocked time of 3:48.63.

Jessica Sharbono won her first indoor title in the shot put. The senior threw a career-best 52 feet, 3.75 inches on her third attempt. Freshman Aaliyah Pete made the podium, placing third with a best throw of 51-2.75, while Kiah Hicks took sixth at 50-0.5.

Jonathan Edmunds placed third in the triple jump with a distance of 49-7.25. Teammate Graham Gilliland finished fifth with a jump of 48-4.75.

In the women's jumps Isobel Brown was the highest finisher for CSU, taking fourth in the high jump. The freshman cleared the bar set at 5-7.25.

Robert Wasinger was a top-three finisher in the 400 meters, placing third with a time of 48.84. Freshman Jerrell Mock took fifth in the 3,000 meters at 8:43.31.

In the men's throws Tyler Shultz was the highest finisher for CSU in the shot put, placing fourth (57-11).

Colorado State will enjoy a week off before the NCAA Championships, hosted by New Mexico on March 14-15.
