AUSTIN, Texas – After an over six-hour weather delay, Colorado State resumed action at the NCAA West Preliminary at Myers Stadium Friday.
The track events, which were slated to start at 4 p.m. MT, were delayed three hours. The field events were halted at 12:45 p.m. and did not resume until 7:30 p.m.
Trevor Brown turned in another impressive sub-14 second race in the 110-meter hurdles at 13.94. He took second place in his heat and seventh overall. Brown will run again Saturday in the quarterfinal at 6:20 p.m.
Sprints coach Karim Abdel Wahab was pleased with Brown’s performance.
“Trevor did a great job staying focused and composed regardless of the three-hour rain delay and the wind conditions,” said Abdel Wahab. “We are excited about tomorrow.”
Jessica Sharbono and Jenna Sliwinski were in the middle of competition in the second flight in the women’s discus when the first lightning strike occurred. Sharbono threw the furthest distance for the Rams at 174 feet, 1 inch in the first of her three attempts. She qualified for the finals in eighth place, which will take place later this evening. Sliwinski fouled on each of her throws.
Due to the inclement weather, the men’s hammer was postponed to Saturday. Ken Harriman will throw at 9 a.m.
