ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - - Colorado State’s track and field team competed at two separate meets Friday, which was highlighted by the Rams’ weight throwers.
Kiah Hicks set a CSU freshman record, with a toss of 58 feet, 10.75 inches in a second-place effort in the women’s weight throw. Elizabeth Johnson came in third, with a mark of 55-2.75 followed by Jessica Sharbono in fourth (54-9.25).
“I thought our women’s weight throw went well,” said Head Coach Brian Bedard. “It always depends on who you’re going up against but to have all three athletes throw personal records is pretty impressive.”
On the men’s side of the event Ken Harriman led until the final round and eventually placed second, with a toss of 60-1. Alec Pott set a personal record of 59-0 in a third-place effort. Carson Rowley (58-9) earned a fifth-place finish followed by freshman Jake Schneeberger (57-0.25).
“Jake has really exceeded my expectations,” added Bedard. “He has a good shot of breaking the freshman record in the weight throw.”
Andrew Schall took sixth in the pole vault, clearing a height of 15-7.
Freshman Mitchel Solomon came in sixth in the high jump, clearing a height of 6-8.25.
Competition resumes Saturday in Boulder at 10 a.m. MST and at 9 a.m. MST in Albuquerque.
