CSU track and field continues to thrive at Cowpoke Open

With just one more meet standing between the CSU track team and the annual Mountain West Championships, the Rams continue to compete at their best to solidify top spots on the conference team.

After traveling to Laramie, Wyoming for the Cowpoke Open, more personal bests were recorded across the board for the team.


In his regular style, Trevor Brown took home two first-place titles in the 400 meter hurdles and 110 meter hurdles. In addition to placing first, he also managed to set the school record in both of those events with times of 49.64 and 13.91 seconds, respectively.

Additionally, Jessica Sharbono broke a school record, throwing 188 feet, four inches in the women’s discus. Her teammates Kiah Hicks and Aaliyah Pete finished directly behind her in second and third.

Other events in which CSU took home first place titles included the women’s 400 meter dash, the men’s 800 meter event, the men’s and women’s 1500-meter run, women’s triple jump and the men’s shotput.

Overall, the men took home first place at the event, and the women came in second.

“We had a good meet today. Trevor Brown set a school record in the 400 hurdles, and Sharbono had another big throw in the discus, just short of her personal record,” head coach Brian Bedard said in a statement. “We had a lot of season bests in the throws and track events.”

Next Up: The Rams will travel to Colorado Springs for their final tune-up before the conference championships on Friday, competing in the Air Force Academy Twilight Meet. CSU will then head back to Laramie for the four-day Mountain West Championship meet that begins on Thursday May 14.
