GOLDEN, Colo. - Luke Dakin recorded the first points for the University of Colorado Colorado Springs with his finish in the 10,000-meter run as action got underway at the 2013 RMAC Track and Field Championships at the Stermole Track Complex at Colorado School of Mines.

Dakin finished in eighth with 33:32.94 in his first 10,000-meter run on the track, and ran within six seconds of earning all-conference honors. He ran his fastest lap split of 1:17.74 on the third lap and turned in a 1:18.62 in the final 400 meters.

Sam Feldotto started the 3,000-meter steeplechase, but did not finish because of an injury to his left foot.
