The Eagles track and field team performed well in its outdoor season-opening meet March 24, in Pueblo, Colo., for the CSU-Pueblo Open.
The track athletes put together a decent result. Although the top two spots escaped them in all events, third was attained by Ashley Reisen in the 1500 meter (4:47.27). Behind that, the runners were scattered in places with Justin Melton and Brandon Segelke taking sixth (11.13) and seventh (11.17) in the 100 meters respectively, along with Lincoln Proud and Gavan Archibald reaching fifth (55.11) and eighth (56.71) in the 400 meter hurdles respectively.
The women’s relay ‘A’ team, consisting of junior Trae Patch of Lingle, Wyo.; senior Stacee Craig of Powell, Wyo.; freshman Meagan Nahrwold of Byers, Colo.; and freshman Shelby Guy of Akron, Colo., grabbed a third and fourth place finish in the 4×400 meter and 4×100 meters, respectively.
Better outcomes were found on the field, where Jazmyn Webster, sophomore of Cheyenne, Wyo., leaped to first in the high jump with a height of 5’8”. Cody Hunt, senior of Lingle, also took the top spot in the shot put with a throw of 59’7”, soaring nearly six feet further than any of the other competitors.
The Eagles will head on the road April 6-7, to Hays, Kan., for the Fort Hays Quad.
