GREELEY, Colo. – Senior Jessica Sharbono moved to the top of the Mountain West in two throwing events after a strong showing during Saturday’s portion of the Tom Benich Invite, earning victories in both the shot put and the discus.

Sharbono threw a remarkable distance of 53 feet, 0.25 inches, moving to 17th in the national rankings following the conclusion of this weekend’s action. Pete also set a personal best at 50-1.75 in second place, while Jackson threw 43-9.25 to finish third.
