FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Boasting big finishes and the two Mountain West Athletes of the Week, the track and field team will travel to Boulder this weekend for the CU Invitational.
Trevor Brown and Jessica Sharbono had a strong showing at the Tom Benich Invitational in Greeley. Brown ran a season best, clocking 13.62 seconds in the 110-meter hurdles. He also finished first in the 400-meter hurdles. Sharbono took control of the shot put and discus and finished third in the hammer throw. Their hard work and big wins put them in prime position to win the Mountain West Athletes of the Week, and both were awarded the honor.
The sprinting group demanded attention by winning both 4x100-meter relay races. Freshman Troy Johnson represented the group well, also winning the 100-meter dash. Meanwhile, his teammate Abby Simpson did the same by placing first in the 400-meter dash. Jonathan Edmunds and Collin Scheer came out undeniably strong in the long jump and high jump, winning both events, respectively. For the throwers, Kiah Hicks and Tyler Schultz were nothing short of impressive, capturing first place in the hammer throw and shot put, respectively.
Each athlete will head into this weekend looking to improve upon those finishes. Many of them have become ranked in the top 50 nationally. Here’s a look at those athletes:
