FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Colorado State track & field squad wrapped up the NCAA West Preliminary at John McDonnell field Saturday. Trevor Brown qualified for the final in the 110-meter hurdles, bringing the total to five events that the Rams will compete in at the championships.
Brown tied his Mountain West record and set a school record with a career-best time of 13.55 seconds. He finished fifth in the race, four spots ahead of his No. 9 seed. This is the first time in his career the senior has qualified for the championships in both hurdling events.
Jonathan Edmunds and Trey Richardson performed phenomenally in the triple jump, finishing well above their seeded mark. Edmunds recorded a personal record finishing 17th with a jump of 50-8.75. Richardson also topped his previous best with a leap of 50-0. He finished 21st.
Holly Keeper also ran a tremendous 5,000 meters, cutting her seeded mark in half in the final standings. She clocked 16:41.75 placing 23rd in the race. Jefferson Abbey ran in the same race for the men, finishing 34th with a time of 14:42.49.
The women’s hammer throwers couldn’t quite measure up to the success they had the previous two days. Kiah Hicks was the Rams’ top finisher throwing a distance of 183-4. She took 21st. Competing in her first NCAA meet, Money Jackson placed 42nd with a throw of 166-11 and Jessica Sharbono finished 45th at 151-1.
JT Van Veen was the lone CSU athlete to compete in the men’s discus. He placed 40th overall with a best throw of 168-2. The men’s 4x100-meter relay team crossed the finish line at 40.66, placing three spots ahead of its seeded spot in 20th. Alison Forrester did not place in the high jump.
