BOULDER, Colo. - Battling through cold, windy and snowy conditions, Colorado State excelled, with seven first-place finishes and multiple personal bests in the Jerry Quiller Classic at Potts Field on Saturday.

"It was really tough for some of the kids through the wet, cold and slick conditions," commented Head Coach Brian Bedard. "You had to mentally be there, but most of our athletes saw it was an opportunity to compete in what could be the same conditions at our conference meet at Wyoming later this year."

CSU's relay runners were the only athletes wearing green and gold on the track Saturday. Both the men's and women's team took first in the 4x100-meter relay. The men's team of Josh DeLoach, Troy Johnson, Marcus Harris and Evan Taylor clocked a time of 41.83 seconds, and the women's squad of Abby Simpson, Lorenda Holston, Emily Romo and Stefanie Tuder crossed the line in 48.57.

Jessica Sharbono and Aaliyah Pete took the top two spots in the shot put, throwing 45 feet, 5.75 inches and 38-11.75, respectively. The two then swapped places in the discus. Pete won the event with a distance of 160-7, and Sharbono threw 159-2, placing second. Sharbono's throw was nearly 29 feet farther than that of the next competitor in the field.


 

 

Sharbono set a career-best in the hammer, throwing a distance of 179-6, topping her previous best of 164-5. The senior took second in the event.

The high jump was moved indoors due to the inclement weather. Alison Forrester and Ashley Reid each earned top three finishes in the high jump. Forrester took second, clearing the bar set at 5-7.75, while Reid placed third, clearing 5-5.25. On the men's side, Collin Scheer took second place, reaching a height of 6-10.25, a new personal record.

Aaron Khoury and Graham Gilliland captured the top two spots in the men's long jump. Khoury jumped a distance of 22-5, and Gilliland reached 21-6.

Sophomore Jessi Macedo won the javelin throw, with a toss of 135-8.

The men's throwers excelled in the hammer. Alec Pott set a new personal best, with a distance of 192-11, good for first place. Tyler Schultz also topped his former record, with a throw of 192-5, finishing second. Schneeberger rounded out the Rams in the event, taking fifth place with a throw of 185-9.

Schneeberger led the team in the shot put, with a distance of 51-8.5, good for second place. Pott took third (50-11.5), Daniel Weirich finished fourth (49-10.5) and JT Van Veen placed sixth (47-6.25).

Van Veen was CSU's top finisher in the discus, taking third with a throw of 158-6.

Colorado State will host its first meet of the year next weekend at Jack Christiansen Track. The Fum McGraw Quadrangular will feature Wyoming, Northern Colorado, Colorado and CSU. Field and running events will begin at 10 a.m. MT Saturday.
