GOLDEN, Colo. — A contingent of University of Wyoming Track & Field throwers competed on Sunday at the Kit Mayer Classic hosted by the Colorado School of Mines.
Wyoming swept the Discus with wins by Cowboy Nathan Reid and Cosette Stellern. Reid’s throw of 170-2 is a personal best and is his first win as a Cowboy for the native Jamaican. Stellern, a graduate of Cheyenne East, picked up the win on the women’s side with a mark of 150-3.
Stellern was also the highest placing Cowgirl on Sunday in the Shot Put with a third-place finish.
