CU track sees several stellar finishes at own Colorado Invitational

The Colorado track and field team dominated the final day of the 2021 Colorado Invitational on Saturday, putting together a record performance on their home venue of Potts Field.

Things started out with a gutsy performance from Sage Hurta, winning the women’s 400-meter run in 54.84 seconds, despite starting without blocks. Her mark is good for sixth in school history. Directly behind her and close to a top-10 time was Abbey Glynn in 55.54.

It didn’t take long to add another mark to the top-10 list as Ronald Sayles won the men’s 400 in 46.37, good for eighth in school history. Tyler Williams was second in 46.81 and would’ve made the top-10 list had Sayles not bumped him out.

Not to be outdone, the 400 hurdlers took to the track and Eriana Henderson threw down a 57.71 second quarter over hurdles to win the race. Her mark doesn’t better her own second-place on the CU record books but was just four-hundredths of a second  from tying her performance at the NCAA Championships in 2019. Aaron McCoy followed suit with a 51.02 in the men’s 400 hurdles to better his fifth-best mark in CU history. Both performances should ensure them spots in the NCAA West Preliminaries.

The men’s hammer was the field highlight of the day as Dominique Williams tossed a bomb of 61.39 meters (201 feet, five inches) to place second and become just the third male Buff to clear the 200-foot mark in the event. Tyler Sconce improved on his 10th-best mark in school history as well with a toss of 55.92 meters (183-5), good for sixth overall.

Another stellar performance for Colorado came from Micaela Degenero who won the women’s 800 in 2:07.79, good for 10th in CU history. She joined forces with Rachel McArthur, Annie Hill and Hurta to close the meet with a women’s distance 4×400. Degenero opened in 57.7, followed by a 57-second split from McArthur who placed second in the steeplechase earlier. Hill went around in around 59 seconds, then Hurta closed in an astonishing 53.9 seconds.

Another event winner today for Colorado was Mark Perry in the men’s 100 in 10.65 seconds, followed closely by Dimitri Stanley in second in 10.85.

Colorado returns to action next week at Colorado School of Mines.
