LINCOLN, Neb. – Colorado State’s distance runners led the way Saturday winning three events, as the Rams finished Day 2 of the Husker Invite at the Devaney Center.
Alex Balsiger added to his already-impressive season by winning the mile run in 4 minutes, 8.31 seconds.
“He looks like he can’t be beat,” said Head Coach Brian Bedard. “He’s running really confident right now.”
“Nicole’s time is one of the fastest in CSU history in the 3,000 meters,” mentioned Bedard. “It’s number two on the all-time list. Hannah probably ran a time that is top five or six in school history.”
Whitney Henderson won the women’s mile run, finishing in 5:02.76.
Trevor Brown came in seventh in the finals of the 60-meter hurdles, finishing in 8.20. Brown along with Zach Browning, Sam Lynass and Seth Monson as a team placed third in the 4x400-meter relay, clocking in at 3:18.22.
Meaghann Peak recorded a ninth-place finish in the triple jump, with a mark of 39-6.5 and Seth Butler took ninth in the 800-meter run, finishing in 2:01.21.
“I thought we had some good efforts out there,” added Bedard. “All our athletes are trying hard; they’re competing. We were pretty excited about the meet overall.”
The Rams return to action Feb. 10 and 11 at the Air Force Invitational.
