CU track has strong showing on first day of Jerry Quiller Classic

The University of Colorado track and field team took care of all the field events on the first day of the Jerry Quiller Classic, walking away with a pair of wins in the women’s javelin and women’s triple jump.

Only Air Force, CSU and Colorado competed in the 16 total field events Friday, with CU taking two victories on the women’s side in the triple and javelin. Both events were uncontested by other schools as CU had the only two competitors in the triple and the five in the javelin. Cheyenne Cheshier won the triple with a jump of 11.31 meters (37-1.25), while Jada Green won the javelin with a toss of 42.30 meters (138-9).

Arguably the strongest performance came from graduate transfer Dominique Williams in the throws. The senior placed second in the hammer throw (56.40m | 185-0) and third in the shot put (14.42m | 47-3.75). His hammer throw is eighth in school history.

Henry Carlson also had a strong day in the throws, placing second in the javelin at 51.30 meters (168-4) and fourth in the discus at 46.75 meters (153-4). In the vertical jumps, Ryan Charles tied for second in the high jump with a clearance of 1.91m (6-3.25), while Nick Bianco cleared 4.60m (15-1) in the pole vault for fourth.

For the women, freshman Allie Routledge had a huge clearance in the high jump to finish second at 1.71m (5-7.25). Lauren Whyrick was second in the women’s shot put at 12.89m (42-3.5), while Jane Powers and Elena Opp finished third and fourth in the hammer throw, respectfully.
