When Sunday's snowstorm shut down Denver International Airport, it also stranded the CSU track and field team in California, where the players had been competing in the Brutus Hamilton Invitational.
They arrived back in Fort Collins around noon on Tuesday, only a day before some of them had to get ready to compete again.
Now, for the second consecutive week, the CSU track and field team will separate for two different tournaments.
Eight Rams will head back to California to race in the 47th Mt. San Antonio College Relays today through Sunday. The meet is the nation's largest track and field meet.
Nineteen Rams will journey to Tempe, Ariz., for the Sun Angel Classic, hosted by Arizona State, Friday and Saturday.
Seniors Loree Smith, who is No. 4 in the country in the hammer and No. 9 in the shot put, according to trackwire.com, and Adam Trainor, who is No. 7 in the hammer, will be competing in both tournaments.
Seniors Michelle Carman and Mike Nicks, junior Nicole Feest, sophomores Katie Lloyd and Kevin Johnson, along with freshman Emily Pearson will put their skills to the test in the Mt. SAC Relays Multi-Event competition.
The remainder of the team will compete in the Sun Angel Classic.
