SPEARFISH, S.D. - Emilio Trujillo and Anthony Davis earned All-RMAC honors in the 3,000-meter and 800-meter runs, respectively, as the University of Colorado Colorado Springs finished the 2013 RMAC Indoor Track and Field Championships today at the Young Center at Black Hills State. The Mountain Lions finished seventh in the team standings.
Trujillo finished fourth in the 3,000-meter run with 8 minutes and 32.07 seconds in a provisional qualifying time. He earned his first indoor all-conference honor in his career and scored five points for the UCCS team total.
Davis earned Third Team All-RMAC honors in the 800-meter run with a fifth-place finish in 1:56.16 and finished just more than a quarter-second off his season-best time.

The meet will take place at the CrossPlex Complex in Birmingham, Ala., as part of the NCAA Division II Winter Championships Festival.
