Junior Nicole Feest also provisionally qualified for the NCAA Championship in the 5000 with a third place time of 16:41.20.

Sophomore Magnus Lohse beat the top-ranked collegiate thrower, sophomore Garrett Johnson from Florida State, and took first in the shot put with a throw of 63-7 3/4.

Senior Jacob Benson placed third in the long jump with a leap of 23-2 1/2.

Another group represented CSU in a meet against Colorado School of Mines. The Rams left Golden with six first-place finishes.

Freshman Kirsten Anthony won the 800 meters and junior Jenny Higgason won the high jump.

Senior Crystal Clark won the mile and freshman Adrienne Parry finished second.

The teams originally planned on sending players to three meets, but the trip to Nebraska was cancelled.

The teams will rejoin forces in Laramie on Friday in the Wyoming open.
