BOULDER, Colo. - The track and field team turned in another solid weekend of competition after completing the CU Invitational Saturday. Multiple Rams were in the spotlight.
For the women, Marina Roberts and Elle Killingsworth represented the distance team with power and speed by finishing first and second, respectively, in the 3,000-meter run. Roberts came in at 10 minutes, 36.80 seconds, while Killingsworth finished at 10:53.46. With a final mark of 11:04.30, their teammate Kaitlin Hanenburg won the 3,000-meter steeplechase.
The female Rams also grabbed the top two spots of the 4x400-meter relay with their `A' and `B' teams. The first crossed the finish line more than six seconds before the rest of their competitors. Those winners were Emily Romo, Abby Simpson, Amanda Lark, and Mariah Witt with a time of 3:46.76.
Trevor Brown found Boulder to be another opportunity to shine. He won the 110-meter hurdles in just 13.96. Senior Christian Meyer and junior Joe Marchand took first and second in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, respectively. Meyer's winning time was 9:18.22, and Marchand finished at 9:44.76. Also for the men, the 4x400-meter relay team posted a time of 3:12.21, winning the event.
Cheyenne Hall won the triple jump at 38 feet, 9.00 inches. Also on the field, Jessica Sharbono and Aaliyah Pete were as strong as expected in the shot put. Sharbono finished first with 48-6.75, while Pete was right behind her at 47-1.75. The two women were second and third behind teammate Kiah Hicks in the discus throw. Her winning throw landed at 179-6. Hicks would also go on to finish second in the hammer throw.
Jessi Macedo, with a toss of 131-5, handled the javelin throw finishing in first place.
Trey Richardson did the same in the triple jump. His final jump measured 47-4.50. Teammate Tyler Schultz was nothing short of spectacular in the men's shot put with a 54-8 throw. He also would take the first and second places in the hammer throw with Jake Schneeberger. Their top two throws marked 201-3 and 194-6, respectively.
The CSU track and field squad will head to the Mt. SAC Relays meet in California next weekend. To read more on the sport, follow @CSURAMSTRACK on Twitter.
