Seventeen is the highest number of individuals to earn all-conference since 2008, when the Rams also had 17 team members win accolades for their performances at the indoor championships. This year Colorado State won three titles, all on the men's side, in the 60-meter hurdles, weight throw and distance medley relay.

- Distance medley: Holly Keeper, Meagan Robinson, Josephine Bush and Kaitlin Hanenburg
Junior Trevor Brown won his third consecutive title in the 60-meter hurdles, topping his own MW record with a time of 7.77 seconds. That mark currently ranks 14th in the nation.
In the men's throws Alec Pott earned his first ever title in the weight throw, with a distance of 61 feet, 3 inches, a personal record. Tyler Schultz also set a PR in the shot put, with a distance of 58-10.75, good for third place.
The men's relay team of Alex Muntefering, Zach Browning, Andrew Goodman and Alex Balsiger won the title in the distance medley. They clocked a time of 9:58.34. The women's team of Holly Keeper, Meagan Robinson, Josephine Bush and Kaitlin Hanenburg came in third with a time of 11:59.62.
Kiah Hicks set a personal best 64-2.25 inches in the weight throw, finishing second. Her mark was the farthest on the team this season by 2 inches. Also in the women's throws, Elizabeth Johnson placed second in the shot put, with a mark of 49-7.75.
