Final Stats

FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The two-day meet closed Saturday with lists of solid results for the Rams. Their competition in Greeley and Fort Collins will keep multiple athletes in high rankings nationally.

As hoped, Trevor Brown took hold of the first place spots in both the 110-meter hurdles and 400-meter hurdles with a new personal record of 13.62 seconds and another time of 51.85. His teammate, Sam Little, came in second right behind him in the 110 hurdles and third in the 400 hurdles.

Head Coach Brian Bedard has been proud of Brown for being on top all season. “Trevor had another big day on Friday. Every time he steps on the track he does something special,” he commented.

Freshman Troy Johnson won the 100-meter dash in a quick 10.70. Marcus Harris and Josh DeLoach were up there with him in third and fourth place. Along with Evan Taylor, the three CSU men grabbed first in the 4x100-meter relay.

Collin Scheer finished strong for the Rams in the high jump, getting as high as 6 feet, 6 inches. In the long jump, Jonathan Edmunds also finished as the top competitor.

In the heptathlon, Colton Grandbouche won the javelin throw with a final mark of 173-6.

Abby Simpson competed in the 400-meter dash, and outstandingly so. She came in first with a time of 56.30. Amanda Lark came in third.

The women also won the 4x100 relay. Abby Simpson, Emily Romo, Lorenda Holston, and Kendall Horan combined for a time of 46.83.

Working to dominate the event, the Colorado State women finished in the first six spots of the high jump. Alison Forrester was the top finisher at 5-8. Ashley Reid and Isobel Brown were right behind her in second and third.

Throwers Jessica Sharbono, Aaliyah Pete, and Monet Jackson were 1-2-3 in the finals of the shot put. Sharbono threw a remarkable 53-0.25 and moved to ninth nationally. Sharbono also won the discus with three teammates right behind her. Now ranked eighth nationally, her final mark came to 178-6. 

Kiah Hicks, currently ranked ninth nationally, grabbed the first place spot in the hammer throw at 198-1. 

For the men, Tyler Schultz and Jake Schneeburger were a duo of strength in the shot put, finishing first and second. Schultz's best throw was at 54-11.25, and Schneeburger topped at 52-7.50. The two Rams then switched places in the hammer throw. Schneeburger won the event. 

“I thought the throws crew did a good job today. Sharbono had a big day hitting personal records in all three throwing events and winning two events. Kiah Hicks looked very good in the hammer today. Allison (Forrester) had a good day in the high jump, and our relays looked solid,” Bedard said of the remarkable marks for the women.

Tossing 139-0, Jessi Macedo found herself at the top of the podium in the javelin throw.

Colorado State will continue next weekend in Boulder at the CU Invitational. Events begin at 3 p.m. MT Friday with the women’s hammer throw.
