Gilkes leads Pack at Tom Benich Classic

GREELEY, Colo. - Pack sprinter Blair Gilkes (So., Aurora, Colo.) headlined the ThunderWolves at the Northern Colorado Tom Benich Classic Saturday, winning the 100-meter and finishing third in the 200.

Gilkes turned in a 12.62 in the 100, not quite a personal best but enough outshine the mostly Division-I field in the event.  Gilkes even beat out Adams State All-American, Indira Spence, in the event, who finished second.

Gilkes also came in at third in the 200 with a sprint of 26.27.  Her mark was the best of the RMAC sprinters in the event.

Jumper Danita Wyatt (So., Aurora, Colo.) also had an impressive day, finishing in the top six in both the long jump and triple jump.  In the triple, she leapt 37-feet, 1.25 inches, just 10 inches shy of a national-qualifying mark.

CSU-Pueblo will return upstate next week for another Division I meet in Boulder at the CU Invitational.
