GREELEY, Colo. - The Colorado State multi-event athletes got the outdoor season off to a great start Thursday at Nottingham Field. Two Rams, Josh Cogdill and Jessica Green, lead in the decathlon and heptathlon, respectively.
Sophomore Josh Cogdill tops the leader board on the men's side with 3,566 points. His day was highlighted with wins in four of the first five events. The Longmont native won the 100-meter dash (11.29 seconds), the shot put (39 feet, 11.25 inches), the high jump (6-4.25) and the 400 meters (51.73).
Teammate Colton Grandbouche follows behind him in second place with 3,245 points. The senior placed second in the shot put, with a throw of 36-7.5, and he tied for first with teammate Cogdill with a height of 6-4.25 in the high jump.
Jessica Green leads the women with 2,836 points after the first four events, which included a win in the high jump and the shot put. Green cleared the bar set at 5-5.75 in the high jump and had a dominant performance in the shot, throwing 33-10. She was also one of two athletes to finish with a sub-16-second 100-meter-hurdle run at 15.66.
Monica Franco is currently in third with 2,560 points. The runner-up in the shot put at 32-2, she was separated by over 2 feet from the third-place competitor.
Multi-events coach Tim Cawley was happy with the Rams' showing on the first day. "For this early in the season, they are doing great," Cawley said. "I am excited to see how tomorrow goes."
On Friday competition concludes for CSU at the multis, while the Jerry Quiller Classic begins in Boulder at 3 p.m. MT with the hammer and javelin, followed by the men's 10,000 meters at 6 p.m.
