Stories featuring Steven Gomez

May 22, 2010UCCS athletes compete, one brings home hardware from track nationalsThe weather came into play in Charlotte, N.C., during the NCAA Division-II Outdoor Track and Field National Championship. Stop me if you have not heard that one from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs 2010 track season. I have never seen as many extreme weather conditions during a track season as I have during the 2010 track season. So of course, the weather could not let up during the National Championship. The women's pole vault and men's high jump were suppose to be contested and completed on Friday, May 28th but the event conclusions were pushed to Saturday due to lighting delays. It is official USA Track and Field and NCAA policy that an outdoor event can not be contested with 30 minutes of a lightening strike within 30 miles of the competition site.
May 19, 2010Two Mountain Lions Qualify for Track National ChampionshipsThe 2010 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field National Championships will have two competitors for the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs. Steven Gomez (So) has qualified in the men's high jump and Lauren Graham (Fr) qualified in the women's pole vault. Both UCCS athletes are in position to potentially win their individual event National Title. Johnson C. Smith is the 2010 host and the National Championship Meet will be contested at Irwin Belk Complex in Charlotte, N.C.

He nearly cleared 2.19 meters, but he will have a couple more cracks at that height as Gomez has automatically advanced to NCAA D-II Outdoor Track and Field National Championship in Charlotte N.C., May 27-29.
April 10, 2010Boulder-Sized Tune UpIt was a tune up Saturday in Boulder for the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs track team.

The way the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs competed will pay off later when there is better weather.
March 28, 2010The Outdoor Season Started-FinallyThe Mountain Lions finally took to the track, outdoors Sunday in Pueblo.
