BOULDER, Colo. - Seven Colorado State track and field athletes and two relay teams had winning performances Saturday at the Potts Invitational in Boulder, Colo.
"It was a beautiful day," said Head Coach Brian Bedard. "It was a great way to start out our season."
CSU swept the men's and women's 4x100-meter relays. Kalie Kirk, Meagan Robinson, Icenia Anderson, and Shanetria Thomas finished first in 47.98 seconds. On the men's side Kelby Dias, Jeff Richmond, Trevor Brown and Antoine Harrison came out victorious, finishing in 41.56.
Brown (14.41) and Dias (14.75) also placed first and third, respectively, in the 110-meter hurdles.
Richmond took first in the 100-meter dash, clocking in at 11.01.
"Kiah Hicks had a really good day for a freshman in her first outdoor meet," added Bedard. "She broke our freshman record in the hammer and competed really well in the discus and the shot put. She had a really good day."
Jessica Sharbono (45-11) and Jenna Silwinski (183-11) each took second in the shot put and hammer throw, respectively.
Three of Colorado State's high jumpers competed at the Tom Benich Classic held on the campus of the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colo. Alison Forrester and Sabrina Jones tied for second in the high jump, clearing a height of 5-3. Gunnar Haynes took third on the men's side of the event, with a mark of 6-4.
"It was good to get started and to have a great weather meet in early spring," added Bedard. " “It was a good opportunity for a lot of our kids.”
