COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The Mountain West announced its men's and women's outdoor track and field all-conference teams Monday, with 17 Rams qualifying for 22 awards. All-conference selections were awarded to the top three finishers in each event at last week's conference championships held in Laramie, Wyo.
Seventeen is the highest number of individuals to earn all-conference since the awards were first given in 2006. That season the Rams had a record 18 team members win accolades for their performances at the outdoor championships.
This year Colorado State won four titles in the 110-meter hurdles, 10,000 meters, the shot put and the discus.
- * Trevor Brown – 110 hurdles
- Zach Browning - 4x400-meter relay
- Josh DeLoach – 4x100-meter relay
- Justin Green – decathlon
- Marcus Harris Jr. – 100 meter; 200 meters; 4x100-meter relay
- Troy Johnson - 4x100-meter relay
- Sam Little – 110 hurdles; 400 hurdles; 4x400-meter relay
- Christian Meyer – 3,000-meter steeplechase
- Travlor Goodnight Skudneski - 4x400-meter relay
- Jake Schneeberger – hammer
- Evan Taylor - 4x100-meter relay
- Robert Wasinger – 4x400-meter relay
- Kaitlin Hanenburg – 3,000-meter steeplecase
- Kiah Hicks – hammer
- * Aaliyah Pete – shot put; discus
- * Rachael Rudel – 10,000 meters
- * Jessica Sharbono – discus
Trevor Brown defended his title in the 110-meter hurdles, running a MW championship and facility record 13.64 seconds in the preliminary round. He clocked 13.69 in the final, cruising to his third consecutive MW championship.
Jessica Sharbono set a personal record in the discus, throwing 193 feet, 1 inch, on her final attempt last weekend. That mark now ranks fourth in the nation.
Aaliyah Pete also threw a career best in the shot put, reaching a distance of 52-8.75. Her throw ranks second in the country among freshmen, and 32nd overall. She also was impressive in the discus, finishing third with a PR throw of 176-5, breaking the CSU freshman record held by five-time All-American Shelly (Greathouse) Borrman. The toss is the third best throw by a freshman this season.
A late addition to the Rams’ squad this season, Rachael Rudel turned heads with a victory in the 10,000-meter run. She set the pace, leading the pack for nearly all 25 laps. The Fort Collins native created some distance in the end, winning the title by over 7 seconds.
Sam Little and Marcus Harris each earned three all-conference awards for their performances in the sprinting events. Harris ran a personal record in both the 100- and 200-meter dash, placing third in each race. In both instances, the freshman placed higher in the final than he did in the prelim. Little also ran a personal best in both of the hurdling events over the weekend. He finished second in the 400 hurdles final and third in the 110 hurdles.
Both athletes contributed to their respective relay teams. The 4x100-meter relay team of Josh DeLoach, Troy Johnson, Harris and Evan Taylor finished in second place, while the 4x400 relay team of Robert Wasinger, Little, Zach Browning and Travlor Goodnight Skudneski placed third.
