FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Colorado State track & field team expanded its résumé at the NCAA championships with three more athletes qualifying for the finals at John McDonnell Field Friday.

The Rams had two qualifiers in the women’s discus. Jessica Sharbono threw 174 feet, 7 inches, placing ninth, while teammate Kiah Hicks threw a distance of 172-10 on her final attempt, finishing 12th overall.

Trevor Brown finished third in his heat and qualified for the last spot in the championships for the 400-meter hurdles. He crossed the finish line at 50.79. Brown ran in the first round of the 110 hurdles as well, clocking 13.67 in the prelims, advancing to the quarterfinal on Saturday. Sam Little also ran in the 110 hurdles, finishing 43rd in the field with a time of 14.67.

Head Coach Brian Bedard was pleased with the Rams’ effort Friday.

“The Rams really battled today,” commented Bedard. “Trevor Brown looked great until about 30 meters from the finish line. It looked like he was cramping up a little bit and was struggling a little, but he fought hard to the finish line. Kiah Hicks had to dig deep on her last throw and move up into the last qualifying spot, which I thought was great effort on her part. (Jessica) Sharbono looked a little off today, but she has enough of a buffer that even if she looks a little off, she still made the nationals cut. Were really excited. We feel good about where were at right now.”

Jake Schneeberger was the top finisher for CSU in the men’s hammer. He threw it a distance of 194-8 in 25th place. Tyler Schultz placed 37th with a throw of 189-0 and Alec Pott took 41st at 181-4.

Kaitlin Hanenburg finished 30th in the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a time of 10.34.64. Christian Meyer ran in the same event for the men at 9:02.60, placing 25th.

Colorado State wraps up the preliminaries tomorrow beginning at 9 a.m. MT with Sharbono, Hicks and Monet Jackson in the hammer. The men’s 4x100-meter relay team is the first event on the track at 5 p.m.
