FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Colorado State outdoor track and field team saved its best performance for the final day of the MWC championships at Jack Christiansen Track Saturday.
"We had some real bright spots," said Head Coach Brian Bedard, "and some young talent step up."
Tyson Williams claimed second place in the shot put, ending with a personal record of 59 feet, 10.25 inches. Ian Lettow (52-0.50) and Carson Rowley (48-00) finished in ninth and 11th, respectively.
The Rams finished in fifth place on the men's side with 101.5 points and sixth place on the women's side with 69 points. BYU won both the men's and women's titles.
CSU's 4x100-meter relay team of Brian Fox, Nigel Joseph, Josh Murphy and Raymond Carter came in third-place, finishing in 41.26 seconds.
Joseph later placed fourth in the 400-meter hurdles, with a time of 53.41.
In the men's 1,500-meter run, Jake Keyser (4:04.45) and Christian Meyer (4:07.44) earned eighth and 10th-place finishes.

Kalie Kirk clocked in at 14.10 in the 100-meter hurdles, placing fifth. She later took sixth in the 400-meter hurdles, finishing in 62:28.
After placing fifth in the long jump Friday, Graham Gilliland finished fifth in the triple jump, with a mark of 47-05.75. Ryan Wasilawski (45-02.5) and Josh McMillin (41-07) claimed the ninth and 10th positions.
Trevor Brown and Kelby Dias placed second and third in the 110-meter hurdles, with respective times of 14.27 and 14.32.
Seth Monson had an impressive performance in the 400-meter dash, coming in second, with a time of 47.18.
"Monson had an extremely good couple of days," mentioned Bedard.
In the 800-meter run, Seth Butler placed ninth, finishing in 1:55.87.
McMillin finished eighth in the javelin throw, with a toss of 164-00.
