Several performances by Metro State’s athletes from both teams stood out during the two-day competition on Feb. 20 and Feb. 21.

In the 60-meter run, freshman Julian Dulaney finished the preliminary race in third place, but fell to fifth place during the final run with a time of 7:03.

During the 800-meter race, two Roadrunners finished in the top three. Senior Michael Warburton took the top place with a time of 1:55.51, while sophomore Ryan Boucher reached third with a final time of 1:55.76

Two other Metro State runners finished in the top three places during the 3000-meter race. Junior Brandon Krage finished in third place with a time of 8:47.57 right behind fellow senior Roadrunner Nick Kadlec with a time of 8:47.13.

On the women’s side, junior Breanna Hemming held the top spot during the mile run by beating 25 other runners with a time of 5:05.99.
