FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State’s track and field team showcased its talent Friday at four premier meets including the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif., and the Sun Angel Track Classic in Tempe, Ariz.
Peters, finished the race in 10 minutes, 15.42 seconds, the second fastest time in Colorado State history.
“Nicole’s time will definitely be the top time in the conference by at least 18 seconds,” said distance coach Bryan Berryhill.
Hanenburg recorded a time of 10:33.37, moving her into fourth-place on CSU’s all-time list.
“It’s a nice personal record for her, especially as a sophomore,” added Berryhill. “I believe that’s the fastest we’ve had a sophomore run.”
Meyer clocked in at 9:03.54, which puts him in the top ten all-time at CSU.
Alex Balsiger had an impressive race in the 800-meter run, finishing in 3:49.72.
“Balsiger had a great heat and a heck of a last 600-meters,” mentioned Berryhill. “It was a slow start to the race. The kid really competes well. He pretty much gets first or second every competition he runs in.”
Kenisha Throughsingh and Jenna Sliwinski led the Rams at the Sun Angel Track Classic, taking first and second in the hammer throw. Throughsingh won the event, with a toss of 187 feet, 8 inches. Sliwinski recorded a distance of 187-0.
At the Mesa Classic in Mesa, Ariz., Jessica Sharbono threw for a distance of 172-4 in the discus and Hicks recorded a toss of 162-1.
Two of CSU’s multi athletes competed at the Air Force Combined Events meet in Colorado Springs, Colo. Justin Green finished in third, with 6,044 points and Josh McMillin took fourth, recording 5,548 points.
