March 3, 2014
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.
- *Trevor Brown: 60-meter hurdles
- Josh Cogdill: Heptathlon
- Jonathan Edmunds: Triple jump
- *Justin Green: Heptathlon
- Ken Harriman: Weight throw
- *Kiah Hicks: Weight throw
- Sam Little: 60-meter hurdles
- Aaliyah Pete: Shot put
- *Alec Pott: Weight throw
- Emily Romo: 200 meters
- Jake Schneeberger: Weight throw
- *Jessica Sharbono: Shot put
- Robert Wasinger: 400 meters
- *Distance medley relay: Andrew Goodman, Zach Browning, Alex Balsiger, Jefferson Abbey
- 4x400 relay: Emily Romo, Abby Simpson, Mariah Witt, Amanda Lark
* 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.
Jonathan Edmunds earned his first-career all-conference accolade in the triple jump, placing third with a best distance of 49-7.25.
