ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Colorado State’s track and field team finished competition Saturday at the Mountain West Conference indoor championships at the Albuquerque Convention Center.
The women’s team finished eighth with 26 team points, while the men came in sixth with 67 points. BYU continued its MWC track dominance, sweeping both titles.
“This is the youngest team I’ve ever coached,” said CSU Head Coach Brian Bedard, “maybe even in the history of the program, and it showed this weekend.”
For the second consecutive day Trevor Brown broke the school record in the 60-meter hurdles, winning the event in 7.91 seconds. Teammates Kelby Dias (8.05) and Brandon Ribble (8.43) repeated Friday’s preliminary results, finishing third and eighth, respectively.
“Trevor’s going to be special,” said Bedard. “We knew that when we recruited him. He has the ability to compete at such a high level.”
Kalie Kirk placed fifth in the women’s 60-meter hurdles, with a time of 8.61. Ellie Keyser (10:05.82) came in ninth in the 3,000-meter run, and Meaghann Peak finished seventh in the triple jump (38 feet, 4.75 inches).
“It’s disappointing not having a conference champion on the women’s side,” added Bedard. “But we are just so young and inexperienced.”
Ian Lettow earned all-conference honors after his performance in the shot put. Lettow recorded a toss of 55-05.75, capturing second place. Seth Butler (1:51.60) came in sixth in the 800-meter run, while fellow freshman Alex Balsiger (4:23.64) finished eighth in the mile run.
In the field events, Cate Brus (5-07.00) captured a seventh-place finish in the high jump, and Andrew Schall (16-06.75) came in sixth in the pole vault.
“We had a lot of freshman mistakes,” said Bedard. “It was certainly eye-opening for many of our freshmen. We'll try and learn from it and move forward to the outdoor season."
