FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The CSU track and field squad found the Fum McGraw Quadrangular to be a perfect platform to shine on its home track, hosting Colorado, Northern Colorado, and Wyoming at the competition. Multiple Rams finished in top spots.

Senior Trevor Brown, who has become comfortable at the top of the podium, finished first in both the 110-meter hurdles and the 400-meter hurdles. He ended with times of 13.88 seconds and 51.80 seconds, respectively.

Teammate Sam Little came close behind in third in the 110 hurdles and second in the 400 hurdles.

Each reaching new personal records in the hammer throw, Tyler Schultz, Alec Pott, and Jake Schneeburger came in first, second and third. Their stats amongst impressive competition ranks all of them in the top 40 nationally.

After setting a personal record at last week's meet, Aaliyah Pete is only improving as she set yet another today, by almost 10 feet yet again. She took second behind teammate Jessica Sharbono in the discus throw, with a toss of 169 feet, 5 inches. The Rams took all four top finishes in the event. Jessica Sharbono finished first, and Head Coach Brian Bedard gave her credit for her busy day.

"Jessica Sharbono did a nice job in the shot put. We put her in three throwing events, so I think she ran out of gas a little in the discus, but she got a personal record in the hammer," he commented.

Putting her one spot away from the top in the all-time CSU record books, Kiah Hicks also proved her strength on the field in the hammer throw. Her second-place mark came in at 199-3.

Chloe Phillips represented Colorado State just as profoundly today, winning the 800-meter run in 2:12.59.

Bedard was pleased with the several winning marks. "I saw quite a few personal records out here today. I think we had good performances in all event areas."

Up next the Rams will split the team up between the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif., and the Tom Benich Invitational in Greeley starting Friday. Two events, the hammer and the discus will take place in Fort Collins at Jack Christiansen Track on Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. MT.
