BOULDER, Colo. – A handful of Colorado State track & field athletes participated in the first day of the CU Invitational Friday, with CSU men competing in the hammer throw and CSU women competing in both the hammer and javelin throws.
Ken Harriman continued last weekend’s success with a fourth-place finish in the hammer throw, tossing 186 feet, 5.25 inches, the top collegiate mark. Jake Schneeberger, Carson Rowley, and Tyler Schultz finished behind Harriman in spots five through seven, in order. Schneeberger threw 182-6, Rowley tossed 176-10, and Schultz finished with a mark of 173-5.25. Alec Pott finished in ninth with a throw of 172-3.5, while JT Van Veen took 12th with a mark of 149-7.25.
The CSU women took spots two through four in the hammer throw. Jenna Sliwinski took second with a throw of 182-4.75, bested only by Colorado’s Emily Hunsucker. Kiah Hicks finished in third with a throw of 175-10.5, while Elizabeth Johnson took fourth with a mark of 165-1.75. Marissa Wagner finished in eighth place with a distance of 144-2.5.
In the women’s javelin throw, Colorado State freshman Jessi Macedo participated as an unattached athlete and turned in a winning performance with a toss of 136-9.25. Her mark was over 13 feet better than the second-place finisher. Fellow CSU freshman Jessica Green turned in a mark of 94-6.25 for 10th place, while senior Cate Brus finished in 12th with a toss of 90-8.75.
