Mountain Lion men open indoor track season
Six members of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's track team made their 2005 indoor season debut Saturday at the Air Force All Comers Meet.
Dan Strishock, Matt Creech, Brad Winn, Kyle Reno, Dustin Trujillo and Ryan Price all competed for the Mountain Lions. For Strishock, Creech, Trujillo and Price, it was the first competition of their collegiate careers.
But it was the veterans, Winn and Reno, who made the biggest splash. Winn took third in the mile run with a time of 4 minutes, 40.09 seconds - just 3.66 seconds behind winner Andres Urbina. Reno took sixth in the same event with a time 4:54.03.
Strishock took 10th in the 400-meter dash, topping four Division I runners in the process. Creech finished 18th in the 400 meters and 17th in the 60-meter dash.
Strishock's time of 52.22 was good for a new school record in the 400 meters, one of many the Mountain Lions are expected to establish in sprints this season. In past years, CU-Colorado Springs has rarely competed in men's sprints, so the current records are very reachable.
Trujillo took 15th in the 800-meter run, while Price finished eighth in the 3,000-meter run.
