OUTDOOR TRACK & FIELD - 2024 regular season results and news (Team in So. Cal. for Brian Clay Inv. 4/11-13)


Club Member
Club Member
With the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships just completed within the last week, the track and field teams IMMEDIATELY switch to outdoor mode, with the 1st meet of the season, being held at the renovated home track, scheduled for this Friday and Saturday.

It's a special year for the team, as they are scheduled to host their 1st Pac 12 Championships in what may be one of not the last Pac 12 events in any sport.

Best wishes to the men's and women's teams - hope they all stay healthy, run faster, jump longer and/ or higher and throw farther throughout the season!

As with the other "individual" sports, I plan on us using this thread to collect / report the results for and news regarding the team during the regular season, and then setting up individual Championships threads once the post-season begins.

(This year's post-season meets, as also listed in the below, are the Pac 12 Championships beginning May 10th, Western Regionals in Fayetteville, Arkansas starting 5/22, and Championships Finals in Eugene beginning 6/5.)

Full Schedule (From cubuffs.com; as of 3/12/24.)
(Note- I'd say compared to ANY other Buff sport, the track and field teams' schedules are the most fluid, with it being common for meets in which the Buffs plan to compete in being added and dropped from the schedule as the season unfolds.):

(Note- I just largely copied the below about qualifying for NCAA preliminaries from what I wrote/ quoted in 2023's outdoor T&F thread, with the main changes being updating the links to season's best to the current year's results.)

NCAA's homepage - https://www.ncaa.org/sports/2013/11/4/division-i-men-s-and-women-s-outdoor-track-and-field.aspx

2023/24 Pre-Championships Manual - https://ncaaorg.s3.amazonaws.com/ch...d1/outdoortf/2023-24D1XTO_PreChampsManual.pdf

Edit- Wanted to add links to the official webpages where outdoor season bests are kept. This is important because, as from what I've read (see http://www.ustfccca.org/meets-results/ncaa-championship-qualifying-criteria#d1OTF or https://www.ncaa.com/championships/trackfield-outdoor/d1/road-to-the-championships for the full qualifying procedures.) -
  • For multi-event athletes, the top 24 marks in the country by a designated date (usually right after conference championships complete for all the teams) for each gender get to go to the NCAA championships and
  • For all other individual events, the top 48 marks, distances or heights in each preliminary region (west and east) by athletes who accept entry for each event by a designated date (usually right after conference championships complete for all the teams) get to go to the NCAA preliminaries to try and qualify for the championships.
  • For the 4X100M and 4X400 meter relays, it's the Top 24 times who accept entry in each of the 2 regions that qualify for the preliminaries.
Links are-
For multi-events (National bests; since there are no multi-event marks yet as I type this in mid-March, the links are to the generic lists for all events for each gender as of now.) -

Women's Heptathlon - https://tf.tfrrs.org/lists/4515/2024_NCAA_Division_I_All_Schools_Rankings?gender=f#event40

Both genders events listed/ combined - https://tf.tfrrs.org/lists/4515/2024_NCAA_Division_I_All_Schools_Rankings?gender=f

(As I pasted this edit March 13th, 2024, the season is still very young as to athletes working towards their best marks, so it's often more helpful to look at LAST season's marks to get a ROUGH idea of what marks MIGHT be needed to qualify for regionals. 2023's marks for Western men can be found at https://tf.tfrrs.org/lists/4163/2023_NCAA_Div_I_West_Outdoor_Qualifying_FINAL?gender=m while the women's is at https://tf.tfrrs.org/lists/4163/2023_NCAA_Div_I_West_Outdoor_Qualifying_FINAL?gender=f .

Further note- The NCAA also allows a couple type of conversions be used to calculate the top marks-
  • For a few distances on the track, marks in NCAA non-standard races are converted up or down to be used for qualifying purposes. (For example- times in mile races outdoor can be converted to 1500M times.) The conversion factors for this are at http://www.ncaa.org/sites/default/files/NCAA_Track_Event_Conversions.pdf .
  • Also, the NCAA has a SEPARATE APP (see http://www.ustfccca.org/meets-results/ncaa-championship-qualifying-criteria#d1OTF for the link) that converts all track times for events competed at altitude to official "sea level" times. (It's the converted times that show up in the above linked-to tfrrs.org top marks lists.) In general, middle distance (800M) and longer races run at altitude calculate to FASTER "sea level" times, while shorter races (400M and less) at altitude calculate to SLOWER times at sea level.

In Baton Rouge at the Battle on the Bayou, the Buffs will have 13 runners competing. On the women's side, Joy Moorer, Emma Pollak, and Abbey Glynn will each participate in two events. Moorer will compete in the 200-meter and 400-meter races, while Pollak and Glynn will take on the 400-meter and 400-meter hurdles. Glynn, returning for her second trip to LSU, previously competed at the LSU Alumni Gold meet in April 2021, clocking a time of 54.50. Pollak, making her debut in Baton Rouge after a strong indoor season, started the outdoor season with a first-place finish at the CSU Pueblo Spank Blasing Invitation, recording a personal best of 59.06. Moorer, also making her Baton Rouge debut, will compete in the 200-meters and 400-meters.

On the men's side, Luc Andrada, Ian Gilmore, Tyler Williams, Nick Gehring, Luke Dry, Nelson Garrett, and Cole Romig will compete in Baton Rouge after an impressive showing at the CSU Pueblo Spank Blasing Invitational. The group secured three first-place finishes in the 400-meter hurdles, 4x400 relay, and the top three spots in the 400-meters race.

Andrada will compete in the 100-meters and 200-meters, narrowly missing his personal best mark of 10.46 by one hundredth of a second at the CSU Pueblo Spank Blasing Invite. Gilmore returns to LSU for his second trip since April 2021, participating in the 400-meters and the 4x400 relay, where he achieved a personal best of 21.06 in the 200-meters. Williams, coming off a strong opening weekend with a first-place finish in the 400-meters at CSU Pueblo, will compete in the 200-meters and 4x400 relay at LSU. Gehring and Dry will both participate in the 200-meters and 4x400 relay after achieving personal bests last week.

Hertenstein returned to action after the NCAA West Preliminary Round last season, winning the 1500-meter run and will participate in the 5000-meter at Stanford. Baran will open her outdoor season with the 5000-meter after an impressive indoor performance at the NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships. Valenti achieved a personal outdoor best of 2:14.61 in the 800-meters and will compete in the 1500-meter. Doucette will participate in her first outdoor season for the Buffs in the 10,000-meter run.

On the men's side at Stanford, 13 runners will compete across various events. In the 800-meters, Greene and Lindrud will compete after strong performances at the CSU Pueblo Spank Blasing Invitational. In the 1500-meters, Hibbard and Appleton will look to improve on their performances from last week. In the 5000-meters, Appleton, Robertson, and Rauba will make their outdoor season debuts. In the 10,000-meters, Vancil, Fraser, Lindgreen, and Derouin will compete, with Derouin aiming to build on his personal best from last season at Stanford. Niednagel and Welch will participate in the 3000m Steeple Chase.CSU

Jack Christiansen Invite:

The Field and multi-athletes from CU will represent the university at the CSU Jack Christiansen Invite. Ten women are set to compete across five events, including Allie Routledge, Avery McMullen, Riley Ward, Lauren and Meghan Whyrick, Obi Mensah-Osafo, Amanda Opp, Bella Braun, Jada Green, and Alaina Fantaski.

Routledge will compete in the High Jump and Javelin, having started the season with a second-place finish at the 45th Aztec Invitational, clearing 1.76 meters. McMullen will also participate in the High Jump and Javelin, having secured three top-six finishes at the Aztec Invitational in the 200m (4th), 100mh (6th), and LJ (6th). Ward aims to improve in the high jump after competing in the Aztec Invitational. Whyrick, L., who finished second in shot put at the Aztec Invitational, will compete in that event again, while Whyrick, M., will compete in shot put after placing fifth at the CSU Pueblo Spank Blasing Invitational.

Osafo-Mensah, who ranked 10th in Discus throw at the 45th Aztec Invitational, seeks improvement in that event. Opp will participate in discus and hammer throw after securing second place in the hammer throw and sixth place in discus at the Aztec Invitational. Braun will compete in the hammer throw after finishing third in that event at the Aztec Invitational.

Swabik achieved personal bests in the 400m (49.24) and the 110mh (14.76) at the 45th Aztec Invitational. Christiansen will compete in the long jump after finishing 11th in that event at the Aztec Invitational, just short of his personal best.

Colorado Track and Field Shines Across Multiple Meets​

By: Herman Shelton, Associate Director/Athletic Communications

Colorado's track and field team displayed impressive performances across three different meets on the second week of competition. The team competed at the LSU Battle on the Bayou, Stanford Invitational and Colorado State Jack Christensen Invitational.

Jack Christinsen Invitational [Results]

Jack Christinsen Invitational In Fort Collins, Colo., the men's hammer throw event showcased strong performances by Colorado's athletes. Matt Ward secured second place with a throw of 63.26 meters (2207-06), leading the Buffs. Laurence Atkinson followed in fourth place with 52.06 meters, followed closely by Isaiah Bouchard (52.04m), Ames Newman (50.43m), and Lucas Williams (47.31m).

Jack Christensen Invitational [Results]

The field athletes displayed strong performances at the CSU Jack Christensen Invitational, claiming four individual wins for the Buffs. Jada Green secured victory for the Buffs in the women's javelin with her mark of 49.54 meters (162-6.25), her second consecutive victory in back-to-back weeks, while Alaina Fantaski finished as runner-up, throwing 42.62 meters (139-9.75). Allie Routledge took third place spot with a distance of 37.70 meters (120-4.75).

In the women's shot put, Lauren Whyrick posted another win for the Buffs with her throw of 13.42 meters (44-0.25), and Meghan Whyrick placed third with a throw of 13.20 meters (43-3.50).

Allie Routledge cleared 1.71 meters (5-7.25) in the women's high jump to claim victory. Avery McMullen placed second with her leap of 1.66 meters (5-5.25).

Matt Ward and Laurence Atkinson represented CU in the men's discus. Ward threw 51.33 meters (168-4.75) for fourth, and Atkinson placed fifth in 59.59 meters (162-8.25). In the women's event, Amanda Opp marked 41.01 meters (134-6.50) to place fifth, while Obi Osafo-Mensah took sixth place with her toss of 40.37 meters (132-4.25).

Gustavo Alfonso competed in the men's javelin, claiming first with a throw of 54.91 meters (180-1.75), while, John Swabik finished third with a mark of 47.43 meters (155-7.25). Swabik also competed in the men's high jump, securing fourth place with a height of 1.93 meters (6-3.75). Aidan Christiansen placed second in the men's long jump, jumping 6.88 meters (22-6.75).

The Buffs will be back in action on their home track at the Colorado Invitational next weekend, starting on Friday, April 5. The Buffs return to Potts Field for the first time since 2022. Potts Field underwent major renovations, with CU installing a new track and new turf in the infield, while also reconfiguring the long jump pit, javelin area, and high jump area. The Colorado Invitational will kick off on Friday, April 5, concluding on Saturday, April 6.
Wanted to mention that the team's only outdoor regular season meet (after an earlier season one was cancelled due to weather) is this weekend. Hope some Buff fans can come out and see what, in addition as being a great chance to see some great athletes competing, will also be an opportunity to see the new facilities in what I assuming will also be a chance for the organizers to treat it as a dry run for the Pac 12 Championships (coming to Boulder starting May 10th).

(From the preliminary schedule in the Meet info document ( https://cubuffs.com/documents/2024/4/1/2024_CU_Invitational_Meet_Info.pdf), looks like the Friday action (javelin and hammer throws only) begins at 2:00 PM MT, while all the action in both the field and on the track is scheduled to start at 11:00 AM MT on Saturday.)

As the week goes on, assume more info will become available at the team's home meet homepage at https://cubuffs.com/sports/2019/1/31/home-meet-information .
I'd say definitely the Buffs' MVP this past weekend.

BOULDER – After last-minute changes due to weather conditions, the Colorado men's and women's track and field teams had an action-packed one-day meet here at the new-look Potts Field on Friday. The Buffaloes celebrated 28 track and field and cross country athletes for Senior Day at Potts to wrap up a successful Colorado Invitational.

"This is probably my 32nd April, Colorado dual meet and this was the most complicated last 48 hours I've ever experienced," head coach Mark Wetmore said of dealing with the weather conditions. "We changed days and venues over and over again. Alex Hoots and Jose [Lopez-Tanori] and Casey Malone, the meet director, just jumped through hoops to make it happen and it turned out to be a very good day."

The Buffs had a very good day on the track as well, racking up nine top-three finishes between both the men and women.

Luc Andrada and Reese Renz started it off by both placing second in their respective races. Renz ran the 100-meter hurdles and finished in 14.43 while Andrada ran the 100-meters and set a personal record of 10.34.

Later on, first-place finishes started piling up for the Buffs. On the men's side, Ian Gilmore took the 400-meter race with a time of 46.76 while Luke Dry was just behind him for a second-place finish in 47.01. Garrett Nelson then placed first in the 400-meter hurdles with a personal best time of 51.24. Colton Romig finished third in the 400m hurdles and also set a personal record in the event.

In the women's 400m hurdles, Colorado accomplished a clean sweep with Abbey Glynn finishing first in 56.51, Emma Pollak finishing second in 59.60 and Joy Moorer placing third in 1:01.45.

The Buffs dominated the field events too with 12 top-three finishes. In the men's long jump, Aidan Christiansen finished first with a PR and John Swabik finished second, also with a PR. On the women's end, Avery McMullen placed third in the long jump with a distance of 6.18m.

Colorado's women's team added another sweep as Allie Routledge, McMullen and Riley Ward took all three spots on the podium in the high jump. Routledge came in first with a mark of 1.72m while McMullen and Ward both reached 1.67m.

The Buffs fared well in throwing events as CU was led by Jada Green with a first-place finish in the javelin throw. Not far behind her was Alaina Fantaski in second with a throw of 43.70m.

Matt Ward picked up two third-place finishes in the discus throw and hammer throw while the CU sisters, Lauren Whyrick and Meghan Whyrick, took second and third in the women's shot put.

The Colorado Invitational ended up being an all-around fantastic day for the athletes, coaches and fans that showed out. The meet wouldn't have been able to take place without all of the staff that made it possible despite the incoming weather.

What made today possible was everyone's commitment to making the meet happen," said Alex Hoots, the Assistant AD of Stadium Operations. "Everyone from coaches here at CU to visiting teams, to external staff being willing and able to pivot shifts and our internal team working as a cohesive unit to put on the best one day meet we could in our brand new facility!"

The Buffs will head to Azusa, California next week to compete in the Bryan Clay Invitational April 11-13.
Big meet (for the distance runners and some multi-eventers) starting today.

BOULDER – The Colorado men's and women's track and field teams are heading to California this week to compete in the Bryan Clay Invitational at Azusa-Pacific University along with hundreds of other programs.

It is a three-day meet at Cougar Stadium with events starting at 10 a.m. MT on Thursday, 8 a.m. on Friday, and 8:30 a.m. on Saturday.

"We have a group of multi-event people and middle and long-distance runners competing over dozens of events for three days," head coach Mark Wetmore said ahead of the meet. "It is quite an undertaking. I have no doubt that many will have 'personal bests'. Let's hope that some take useful steps toward Pac-12 level contribution."

The Buffs are coming off of their first home meet of the outdoor season, the Colorado Invitational, where they celebrated their seniors and saw several first-place finishes on the track and on the field.

Colorado looks to carry that momentum into this weekend as the Buffs are sending large groups of distance athletes to compete in the meet. A total of 27 men and 11 women from the distance squads will rep the Black and Gold on the track.

Eva Bruce is the only multi athlete from the women's side making the trip to Azusa as she will be competing in the heptathlon. Troy Colleran, Drake Miller and John Swabik will be taking part in the decathlon. Both the heptathlon and decathlon will start on Thursday and conclude on Friday.

"We quite often get good marks in the multi's here," Wetmore went on to say. "This will be their first attempts of the outdoor season, I believe. The distance runners will also expect excellent conditions and competition, perhaps some regional qualifiers here and there."

Most of the multi and field athletes are staying in Boulder as they prepare for the Mt. SAC Relays next week while the distance runners look to make a big splash in Azusa starting Thursday.
