CSC track and field athletes were separated yet again this weekend as many of the field participants were in Spearfish, S.D. at the Black Hills Open on Friday, and most of the runners were in Lincoln at the Tune-Up Meet on Saturday.
Sophomore Jazmyn Webster of Cheyenne, Wyo., leaped to victory on Friday in Spearfish, winning both the long jump and high jump. Her distances were 17’5½” in the long jump and 5’5”¾ in the high jump. Neither jump was a season best, but they were enough to capture the wins for Chadron State College.
Also in Spearfish, sophomore Brittney Graham of Hugo, Colo., won second in the shot put with a throw of 41’3” and sophomore Cyndi Thomas of Omaha captured second in weight throw with a distance of 48’4 ¾”. On the men’s side, senior Cody Hunt of Lingle, Wyo., won the shot put with a throw of 59’7 and ½”. Also, Greg Rodriguez, freshman of Del Rio, Texas, won long-jump with a throw of 22’¾ ”.
In Lincoln, CSC athletes broke records for the second consecutive weekend. Monique Fair, junior of Denver, Colo., beat the school record for the 400 meter run with a time of 58.84 seconds.
For the men, Brandon Segelke, sophomore of Sidney, improved his personal record in the 200 with a time of 22.36.
Chadron State is hosting the RMAC Indoor Championship on Friday. Head coach Ryan Bailey is excited for the chance to host such a huge event. “We want as many people out to support our athletes as possible,” Bailey said.
Action is set to begin with the field events at 8:30 a.m. Friday morning and continue on until Saturday afternoon.
