Small leads way on second day at AFA
It was a light day of competition for the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's track team on Saturday in the final day of the Air Force Invitational at the US Air Force Academy.
With the bulk of the Mountain Lions participation occurring yesterday, UCCS competed in just two events on Saturday.
Gabe Small was able to finish sixth overall in the 5,000-meter with a finishing time of 17 minutes, 38.64 seconds.
In the long jump, freshmen Tory Passalaqua finished in the 15th overall spot with a jump of 17 feet, 7 inches.
UCCS' most consistent long and high jumper, freshmen Storm Allen, was scheduled to compete but was unable to make it to the event due to illness.
The Mountain Lions next meet is Friday, February 10th in Seattle Washington.
