Track and Field: Edmunds, Webster set records at Tom Benich Invite

CSU senior high jumper Jazmyn Webster had quite a day at the Tom Benich Invite in Greeley, Colorado. She won the women’s high jump by jumping six feet even, matching the CSU indoor record she set about a month ago in the process.

The jump set a new CSU outdoor record, beating the previous mark by more than an inch. Webster beat the rest of the field by over three inches. The women’s team took home a team victory.

Jonathan Edmunds made history as well with his win in the men’s triple-jump. The senior broke his own CSU outdoor record by posting a mark of 50 feet and 10 inches. He also took home a victory in the long jump. The men’s team finished in second place behind only Wyoming.

CSU football holds closed scrimmage

Colorado State football had its first scrimmage of the spring Saturday morning. The scrimmage consisted of 102 plays. Quarterbacks Nick Stevens and Coleman Key posted similar statistics while splitting snaps with the first team.

Stevens completed 13 passes for 156 yards and Key completed 10 passes for 160 yards. Both threw two touchdowns and one interception, though head coach Mike Bobo pointed out that Stevens’ interception came on a Hail Mary during a one-minute drill.

On the ground, Jasen Oden Jr. ran the ball 11 times for 59 yards and the lone rushing touchdown. Dalyn Dawkins ran the ball four times for 19 yards and Deron Thompson ran the ball four times for 15 yards.
