Meet Info

FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Heading from their home track last week to Greeley this weekend, the Colorado State team will look for opportunities to grab top spots at the Tom Benich Invitational.

 

Returning from the Fum McGraw Quadrangular, many Rams are in the spotlight. Senior Trevor Brown was awarded Mountain West Athlete of the Week after last week’s meet, and he will look to move up in the national rankings in both hurdling events. Tyler Schultz, Alec Pott, and Jake Schneeburger also found themselves at the top and will each head into this weekend with new personal records in the hammer throw.

 

Teammate Jessica Sharbono has been seen at the top of the podium multiple times already this year in the throwing events. She finished high in each of the three events she competed in last weekend, and there are high hopes for her to accomplish that again. Another Ram to watch, Kiah Hicks made second in the all-time rankings at CSU in the hammer throw at last weekend’s meet. Four female Rams grabbed the top four spots in the discus last weekend; it’s an area they’ll be looking for strength in again at the Invitational. For the runners, Chloe Phillips finished first in the 800-meter run at the Fum McGraw and will look to improve her time in the race.

 

With no middle distance or distance running at the Invitational, Colorado State will miss those areas for their usual big finishes. Competition in Greeley will begin at 2 p.m. MT. The two-day meet will bring its second day of events to Fort Collins at 10 a.m. Saturday as CSU will host the discus and hammer throws.
