    U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — University of Colorado senior Alex Kirizian broke his own CU weight throw record on Friday night with a mark of 69 feet, two inches to win the Air Force Collegiate Open.


    His throw was over four feet further than CSU’s Jake Schneeberger (64-9.75), who was the only other competitor to throw over 60 feet. Kizirian’s previous record was 68-4.50 and was also set at the Air Force Academy on January 24, 2014.


    Kizirian also had a good showing in the shot put, recording a personal best of 55-6.25 for third overall.


    A couple other Buffs recorded first place finishes in their first meet after winter break. Mark Jones won the high jump after clearing 6-8.75 and Jaylyn Mars was the top performer in the 400, crossing the finish in 49.54.

    Sounds like many Buffs earned good results in this early meet. Hopefully they can build off it and have a good season.
