EUGENE, Ore. – The Colorado State track & field squad wrapped up Day 2 of the NCAA championships at Hayward Field with three All-American awards, one first-team and two second-team.

After barely squeezing into the final, junior Kiah Hicks greatly surpassed expectations, finishing seventh in the discus with a throw of 175 feet, 6 inches. She is the first Ram to win a first-team All-America accolade this year.

“Kiah was ranked 24th coming in and just never gave up,” praised Head Coach Brian Bedard. “She had nothing to lose and went for it in qualifying for the finals. I’m very proud of her effort and mental toughness today.”

Jessica Sharbono competed in the first flight, in which many of the throwers struggled due to poor weather conditions. She topped out at 169-6, good for 14th place overall, winning a second-team All-America award.

“Jessica had a tough go in the first flight,” added Bedard. “Conditions were much tougher in Flight 1 with rain and poor wind conditions. Several throwers struggled out there. The second flight had better weather, but that’s the way it goes. I thought Jess looked tentative on her finish today, and we need to get that fixed before the USA Championships.”


 

 

Trevor Brown fell just shy of the top eight in the 110 hurdles by only 0.01 of a second. He clocked 13.76 seconds, finishing ninth, and was awarded as a second-team All-American. This is the senior’s fourth career All-American honor, and he’ll earn his fifth tomorrow for placing in the top 16 in the country.

Brown will be the only athlete on the track for CSU tomorrow, running in the final of the 400-meter hurdles. The race is set for 5:33 p.m. MT.
