FORT COLLINS, Colo. – After a busy period of travelling to and from California for participation in a number of different meets, Colorado State track & field athletes will return to competition at home this weekend for the Jack Christiansen Invitational at the Jack Christiansen Track.
The three-day meet begins Thursday with the Glenn Morris Multi-Event portion, which lasts into Friday. The women’s heptathlon is the beginning of all competition and is slated to begin at 11 a.m. MT Thursday with the 100-meter hurdles. The men’s decathlon starts at 11:30 a.m. Thursday with the 100-meter dash. The heptathletes finish out the day with the high jump, shot put, and 200-meter dash, while the decathletes will participate in the long jump, shot put, high jump and 400-meter dash.
The heptathlon’s final three events, the long jump, javelin throw and 800-meter run, will occur Friday. In the decathlon, Friday’s events are the 110-meter hurdles, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw and 1,500-meter run.
The rest of the meet will begin Friday at 3 p.m. with the men’s and women’s hammer throws. Remaining field events begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, while track events are set to begin at 10 a.m. Saturday with the women’s 5,000-meter run. The men’s 1,600-meter relay will wrap up the Jack Christiansen Invitational; it is set to start at 2:45 p.m. Saturday.
The Rams hope to build on their last home meet, the Fum McGraw Quadrangular, which saw Colorado State dominate on both the men’s and women’s sides of competition. Colorado State is also coming off an exciting weekend in which Trevor Brown broke his own school and conference record in the 110-meter hurdles and Andrew Goodman set the Beach Invitational record in the men’s 3,000-meter steeplechase.
Tyler Schultz and Kiah Hicks lead a group of throwers who will aim to continue their 2013 outdoor success. Schultz and Hicks are both coming off of personal-best performances at the Mt. SAC Relays and Beach Invitational in California.
The Glenn Morris Multi-Events and Jack Christiansen Invitational will take place at the Jack Christiansen Track, located at the east end of the campus of Colorado State University. Admission is free to the public.
