COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Colorado State's track and field team began its 2012 season Friday in impressive fashion winning 10 events at the Air Force All-Comers meet held in the Cadet Field House on the campus of the Air Force Academy.
"It was a great start to our indoor season," said Head Coach Brian Bedard. "We had a meeting at the end of the meet to talk about the results and we had a large number of athletes who hit personal-best performances today. That's not very common at the first meet and our staff and athletes were really excited."
Meagan Robinson won the 400-meter dash, finishing in 58.66 seconds. Robinson was also part of the women's 4x400-yard relay team, along with Stephanie Gerber, Lindsay Banning and Shanetria Thomas, that took first.
Alex Balsiger picked up another victory for the Rams, winning the 800-meter run in 1:53.06.
In the women's mile run Nicole Peters took first, clocking in at 5:12.9.
Kaitlin Hanenburg continued the winning ways placing first in the 800-meter run, with a time of 2:23.36.
Meaghann Peak's jump of 18 feet, 2.25 inches in the long jump was good enough for a first-place finish.
Ken Harriman earned a victory in the weight throw with a toss of 59-0.
"We brought our team back earlier from break this season," added Bedard, "and I think it's paying off."
The Rams will split next week for the Cherry and Silver Invite in Albuquerque, N.M. and the Potts Indoor Invitational in Boulder, Colo. both taking place on Jan. 20 and 21.
