Colorado masses move forward at Simplot

In a dramatic reversal of the trend of recent years, Colorado is moving forward into Simplot's finals in massive numbers.

As it turns out, Thursday was merely the table setting for Friday. Colorado's entries moved through preliminary rounds on Friday and into Saturday's finals in numbers almost to large to detail. But, we'll give it a try nevertheless. At the bottom of this article is a link to all results for the day (except field event results--Simplot reports no marks for the preliminary rounds of field events). As you peruse the results, keep in mind that the track times you see are without spikes. Spikes are not legal for the preliminary rounds at Simplot
