FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State’s track and field team will be represented by 14 athletes this weekend, as it competes at the NCAA West regional in Austin, Tex., beginning Thursday.
“We have certain athletes that have a legitimate shot to advance to nationals,” said Head Coach Brian Bedard. “For our younger athletes it gives them a chance to see what it’s all about.”
CSU will also be represented by Alex Balsiger (1,500 meters), Kiah Hicks (Shot put, discus and hammer), Holly Keeper (1,500 meters), Jessica Sharbono (Discus), Jenna Sliwinski (Hammer), Kenisha Throughsingh (Hammer) and Meaghann Peak (Triple jump).
“These athletes are the cream of the crop of our program,” added Bedard. “You can throw times and distances out the window, it’s just about beating people now.”
The top 12 finishers in each event advance to the NCAA national championships in Des Moines, Iowa June 6-9.
