ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Colorado State’s track and field team continued to impress on Day 2 of the Potts Indoor Invitational in Boulder, Colo. and the Cherry and Silver Invite at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Alex Balsiger paced the Rams in Albuquerque winning the mile run, with a time of 4:12.80 and taking second in the 800-meter run, finishing in 1:53.63.

“Alex winning the mile and taking second in the 800 meters is a huge highlight for us,” said Head Coach Brian Bedard.

Nicole Peters' second-place effort in the 3,000-meter run (9:48.23) also impressed Bedard.

“Nicole Peters' 3K was huge. Second place, that’s got to be a top time in the conference right now.”

Hannah Pensack-Rinehart (10:01.55) and Kendra Gerk (10:29.53) came in right behind Peters in fourth and seventh, respectively.

Kaitlin Hanenburg (4:54.77) took third in the women’s mile run followed by Holly Keeper (5:09.71) who took sixth.

Kalie Kirk earned a ninth-place finish in the 60-meter hurdles, clocking in at 8.75.

Carson Rowley (51 feet, 10.5 inches) placed sixth in the shot put followed by Ken Harriman (51-3.5) in seventh, Alec Pott (51-0.25) in eighth and Jake Schneeberger (48-02.75) in ninth.

In the women’s shot put Elizabeth Johnson (44-06.25) and Kiah Hicks (44-06) took fourth and fifth, respectively.

Seven Rams earned first-place finishes at the Potts Indoor Invitational.

Meghan Finney (1:36.6) won the 600-yard run, while Kat Robinson (5:47.37) came out victorious in the mile run.
