NEW ORLEANS - The University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's indoor track and field team will finish the regular season in No. 10 in the final U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association South Central Regional Team Index released this morning. The Mountain Lions earned five USTFCCCA All-Region awards yesterday from the coaches association.
Alexa Urban, Melanie Diep, Jessica Todd, Megan Burrell and Alex Colvin each earned all-region honors for having performances rank in the top five for individual events and in the top three for relay events. Diep and Burrell also have the eighth-fastest times in the region for the 800-meter run and mile run, respectively, and Angie Martell has the eighth-fastest time in the 5,000-meter run in the region.
