The CSU Pueblo men and women’s track teams have started their outdoor season. After coming off of a great indoor season, the student athletes continued their dominant performances on home turf and track at the Thunderbowl. 

CSU Pueblo’s big men, Justin Jenks and Nathaniel Miller, have started the outdoor season the same way they started indoor. Jenks opened up with a shot toss of 19.18m to rank him first in the nation for D2. Right behind him is teammate Miller, with a throw of 19.08m. 

The men’s mid-distance runners also bolstered some imp

ressive statistics. Reece Sherman-Newell ran the 800m in a time of 1:46.59 to put him at the top of the rankings for D2. Behind him is his teammate, Kaleb Tipton, who opened up his outdoor season with a massive PR of 1:50.84. Tipton is currently ranked 6th in the nation. 

The women’s mid-distance also had outstanding performances. Yasmine Hernandez opened up with an 800m time of 2:07.60 to give her the top spot in D2. Helen Braybrook was not far off of Hernandez with a time of 2:10.42. That time puts Braybrook at fifth in the nation. 

Leading the women’s throwers is Jenna McKinley. She started her outdoor season with a shot throw of 14.28m, landing her with a fifth-in-the-nation rank. McKinley also managed to achieve a new personal best in the discus with a throw of 42.24m.
