WALNUT, Calif. - Nicole Peters placed fourth in the women's 5,000-meter run and the Colorado State outdoor track and field team finished up a weekend of competition at the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif., and the Beach Invitational in Long Beach, Calif.
"It was a lot of track and field," said Head Coach Brian Bedard, "some athletes competed in all three meets."
Peters finished the event in 16 minutes, 48.46 seconds, setting a season best for the Rams.
