Instead of braving the cold rain and snow on Friday, the Rams

postponed the Glenn Morris Multi-Event Invitational for Sunday and

today – the planned worked well.

CSU freshman Katie Lloyd won the heptathlon on Monday, scoring

4,961 points and missing the NCAA qualifying standard by just 39

points. Freshman teammate Tonya Cure finished second with 4,492

points, while freshman Kelly Marquardt finished sixth with 3,646


Lloyd’s two-day total of 4,961 is also the third best in school

history behind the school record of 5,160 held by CSU assistant

coach Lindsey Malmgren and junior Cristina Gourdin’s total of

5,136, which she accumulated earlier this season. Lloyd finished

the heptathlon with a bang, running a personal-best time of 2

minutes, 29.43 seconds in the day’s final event, the 800


Cure also ran a career-best 2:18.91 in the 800 meters to win the

event and Marquardt had career-highs in both the long jump and the

800 meters.

Freshman decathlete Kevin Johnson did not compete today after

fouling on all three of his shot-put attempts Sunday.

The Colorado State track & field teams will be in

Albuquerque, N.M., on Saturday for the Modrall Sperling Don Kirby
