Complete Release

FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Operating under concerns of low temperatures and possible snow on Saturday, the Rams will travel to Northern Colorado for an abbreviated Tom Benich Invitational Friday.

After competing in just a handful of events last week, Colorado State is sending more of a full squad to Nottingham Field Friday. The distance runners and jumpers will be competing for the first time this outdoor season. Alison Forrester, Jazmyn Webster and Graham Gilliland are all looking to build on their all-conference performances in the jumps from the indoor term.

Field events will begin at 10 a.m. MT and the running events will start at noon. The meet will use a rolling schedule format. Admission for spectators to the invitational at Nottingham Field is free of charge.

Due to forecasts of inclement weather this weekend, CSU-Pueblo has cancelled its meet, and Northern Colorado cancelled the multi-event portion and condensed the rest of the meet to take place on Friday.
