COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.Cate Brus led Colorado State’s multi-event athletes Wednesday, winning the high jump and setting a personal record in the 100-meter hurdles on Day 1 of the Mountain West championships held at the Cadet Outdoor Track and Field Complex.

Brus, a junior from Cody, Wyo., totaled 3,084 points in the heptathlon, which puts her in second place. San Diego State’s Allison Reaser leads the event with 3,355 points. Brus started the day by setting a personal record of 14.68 seconds in the 100-meter hurdles. She later won the high jump, clearing a height of 5 feet, 7 inches.

“If she has another day tomorrow like she did today that will be a good meet for her,” said Head Coach Brian Bedard.

Josh McMillin ended the day with 3,548 points in the decathlon, which puts him in sixth place. McMillin tied for fifth in the long jump (21-11.75) and took fourth in the shot put (39-0.5).

Justin Green sits in ninth place after totaling 3,453 points. Green took third in the high jump, with a mark of 6-6.25.

“Justin competed really well and then had some events that didn’t go so well,” added Bedard. “Josh will have to bounce back on his second day tomorrow.”

Competition resumes Thursday at noon with the 110-meter hurdles as part of the decathlon.
