Four personal bests turned in by Pack at Mines Pre-Conference Meet
GOLDEN, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - April 27, 2012) - CSU-Pueblo had a very successful meet at Colorado School of Mines Friday, getting personal bests from four ThunderWolves.
Despite getting no national qualifying marks, ThunderWolves came very close to qualifying and busted personal marks and in some cases, school records.
Taking down a school record was Lacy Harris (Fr., Cimarron, N.M.), who continues to improve week by week in the pole vault, finshing third with an 11-foot, 3-1/2 inch vault. It broke her own school record and was just 4-1/4 inches shy of a provisionally-qualifying mark to nationals.
Holli Salazar (Jr., Hayden, Colo.) turned in a personal best in the discus, finishing third with a 127-foot, 3-inch throw. She finished behind teammate Krystel Martinez (Fr., Pueblo, Colo.), who, despite not breaking a school record or setting a personal best, finished second with a 138-foot, 11-inch throw.
Krista Wiltberger (Sr., Colorado Springs, Colo.) continues to improve in the high jump, this time garnering a second place finish with a personal best 4-foot, 11-inch jump.
Also turning in a personal best was Chaela Cannon (Fr., Denver, Colo.), who ran the 200-meter in 28 seconds flat.
Danita Wyatt (Sr., Aurora, Colo.) set a personal outdoor best Friday, winning the long jump with an 18-foot, 5-1/4-inch jump, finishing just 1-1/4 inches shy of a provisionally qualifying jump.
The ThunderWolves now get ready for the RMAC Championships, taking place March 6-8 in Gunnison at Western State College.
