    BOULDER — Colorado senior Pierce Murphy’s final national championships “tour” will continue this weekend, when he makes his last appearance in the NCAA Indoor Track and Field National Championships.

    Colorado sophomore Erin Clark, meanwhile, will be making her first — but likely not her last — indoor championships appearance.

    Murphy and Clark are part of a five-person CU contingent that will be competing this weekend in Birmingham, Ala. They’ll be joined by seniors Connor Winter and Morgan Pearson on the men’s side and sophomore Kaitlyn Benner on the women’s side.
    ...
    The men’s 5K race will begin at 7:05 p.m. (Mountain) Friday. The men’s 3K race begins at 5:10 p.m. Saturday with the women’s race scheduled to begin at 5:25 p.m.

    ESPN 3 will stream the meet live beginning at 4:25 p.m. Friday and 2:55 p.m. Saturday. A re-air of the championships will begin at 5 p.m. Sunday on ESPN2 and also on March 23 at 8 p.m. on ESPNU.

    Great job by Buff senior Pierce Murphy, as he gets 3rd place! And, a 2nd Buff, Morgan Pearson, also has a great race and scores points with his 6th place finish.

    Article on yesterday's races- http://www.cubuffs.com//ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=210797738 . Congrats to the 5 Buff runners who qualified for and raced in the Championships, all of whom earned All-American honors.

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Four Buffaloes earned top 10 performances on Saturday night at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in 3,000-meter run.

    University of Colorado senior Pierce Murphy and sophomore Erin Clark each placed fifth in their respective races. Sophomore Kaitlyn Benner was eighth in the women’s race, while senior Connor Winter was 10th in the men’s race.

    “My common aspirations is that we outrun our rankings, and I think we did that in all of our events this weekend,” head coach Mark Wetmore said. “Pierce had an excellent weekend, the best in our group, scoring in two events and earning first team All-American honors in two events. He’s having a really nice senior year.”
