    AZUSA, Calif. – The season keeps getting better and better for University of Colorado junior Abrianna Torres. On Thursday afternoon at the California Invitational, she recorded the fifth best heptathlon mark in CU history with 5,544 points, which is the highest score since 1996.

    The mark put Torres in elite company at CU. Olympian Annette Tannander and Heather Sterlin are the only two other Buffs who have put together a score over 5,500. Tannander has the top two scores (5,863 and 5,638) from the 1983 season, while Sterlin has the third (5,582) and fourth (5,573) best marks from 1996.

    “To be the number three performer in CU history is so humbling but as anyone would, I want to be number one,” Torres said. “For now I'm ecstatic, these past two days with my teammates and coach is everything I could have asked for and more. Everyone excelled and brought great vibes and hopefully we can continue that into the weekend.”
