Mountain West Release

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The Mountain West announced its men's and women's indoor track and field all-conference teams Monday, with 21 Rams qualifying. All-conference selections were awarded to the top three finishers in each event at last week's conference championships hosted by Air Force.

Twenty-one is the highest number of individuals to earn all-conference since 2006, when the Rams had 24 team members win accolades for their performances at the indoor championships. This year Colorado State won six titles, doubling last year’s number, in the shot put, 60-meter hurdles, weight throw, distance medley relay and heptathlon.


 

 

* Won Mountain West title

Trevor Brown completed a four-year sweep, winning the 60-meter hurdles, and set a new Mountain West record at 7.73 seconds. Converted for altitude, his time of 7.77 seconds ranks 17th in the nation. Teammate Sam Little also medaled in the event in third place.

The men continue to impress in the multi-events, as Justin Green and Josh Cogdill took the top two spots in the heptathlon. The award is the second for each of them, after winning all-conference nods during the 2013 outdoor season.

Always a strong area for Colorado State, the Rams lived up to expectations in the throwing events. Both Kiah Hicks and Jessica Sharbono won titles in the weight throw and shot put events, respectively, while Alec Pott, Ken Harriman and Jake Schneeberger finished one-two-three in the men’s weight throw. Freshman Aaliyah Pete also excelled amongst stiff competition, placing third in the shot.

Tasked with replacing Alex Muntefering in the distance medley relay, freshman Jefferson Abbey proved to be effective, earning the Rams’ their second consecutive title in the event. A group of all newcomers excelled in the women’s 1600-meter relay, placing third in the race.

The Rams’ sprinters also shined at the indoor championships. Robert Wasinger took third in the 400-meter dash, while freshman Emily Romo earned a third-place finish in the 200 meters.

Jonathan Edmunds earned his first-career all-conference accolade in the triple jump, placing third with a best distance of 49-7.25.
