    SEATTLE — University of Colorado junior Abrianna Torres (pentathlon) and freshman Kaitlyn Benner (5,000-meter run) won Mountain Pacific Sports Federation individual titles on Friday at the first day of the MPSF Indoor Track & Field Championships at Dempsey Indoor.

    Torres won the pentathlon with a personal best score of 4,025 points, which included three personal records, and became just the third Buff to win the pentathlon at a conference meet. Annette Tannander won the Big Eight title in 1983 and Pam Owen took home a pair of Big Eight titles in 1991 and ‘93.

    Just a short time later, freshman Kaitlyn Benner won the 5,000-meter run with a huge PR of 16:08.22, becoming the first Buff since 2006 to win the indoor conference 5k. She defeated Arizona’s Elvin Kibet by more than five seconds, with Kibet clocking in at 16:13.35. Benner’s time ranks sixth on CU’s all-time performers list and is the fastest 5k debut by a CU freshman.

    Congrats to them both and good luck to the others still competing. Hopefully we can get a bunch to qualify for the NCAAs.
