Senior McKenzie Brogan and junior Jordan Charles ran historic marks in the hurdles, but the University of Wyoming track and field teams dropped duals at Colorado State on Friday afternoon. The Cowgirls posted five all-time top-10 marks in a 92-63 loss to the Rams, while the Cowboys had two marks and fell 83-53.

Brogan continued her run through the Cowgirl record book with another personal best in the 400-meter hurdles on Friday. Her time of 59.30 won the event and moved her up to fourth in program history. Fellow senior Sabina Sandberg won the high jump with a personal-best leap of 5-9 1/4 and now owns sole possession of second in Cowgirl history. Junior Audra DeStefano was runner-up in the 1,500 meters in 4:29.56, good for sixth in UW history. Junior Shana Wilcoxson won the triple jump at 38-0 3/4 for the ninth-furthest leap in program history, while freshman Emelda Malm-Annan was first in the hammer at 185-6 for the 10th-furthest throw ever by a Cowgirl.

Charles paced the field in the 110-meter hurdles in 13.82, a personal best by one hundredth of a second. The time keeps him second in Cowboy history, but is now just one hundredth of a second away from tying the school record. Charles also won the 400-meter hurdles on Friday with a time of 51.68. Freshman Calil Burnett was third in the 100 meters in 10.60 for ninth in program history. Senior Aaron Derner won the 1,500 meters in a personal-best 3:58, while sophomore Jonah Henry was first in the steeplechase in 9:19.

Wyoming now prepares for the 2016 Mountain West Outdoor Championships next week in Fresno, Calif. The multi-events begin on Wednesday, while the rest of the meet kicks off Thursday.
