Mountain Lions Face Four Other RMAC Teams at Mines
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The University of Colorado Colorado Springs will face student-athletes from four other RMAC teams today when the second day of the Colorado Mines Twilight Collegiate Open begins at the Steinhauer Fieldhouse. Sixteen Mountain Lions are scheduled to be in action in six different events today.
The 60-meter dash preliminaries and finals will be the first events to feature UCCS student-athletes, with Chad Liscar, Chris Myers and Travis Whitman in the field of 34 sprinters in six heats. Liscar and Myers will also double-up with the 200-meter dash at 1:35 p.m. Liscar is ranked No. 11 in the RMAC performance lists for the 200-meter dash coming into today.
Jonathan Wright, the conference leader in the 400-meter dash, will lead eight Mountain Lions in the event at 12:35 p.m. He leads the RMAC with an adjusted time of 49.51 seconds, and holds a four-hundredth of a second advantage over the second-fastest time.
