    LARAMIE, Wyo. – University of Colorado junior Emily Hunsucker just keeps getting better and better as she broke her CU record in the hammer throw for the third time this season at the Cowpoke Open on Friday afternoon.

    Hunsucker launched a toss of 203-9 in her first throw to demolish her previous mark of 200-3 by more than three feet. This was her sixth win of the season. Hunsucker’s throw was over 16 feet further than Colorado State’s Jenna Sliwinski’s throw of 187-1. Hunsucker’s series was so good, that despite two fouls, any one of her four fair throws would have won the meet (203-9, 203-3, F, 193-0, F, 193-2).

    The throw improves her Pac-12 ranking from seventh to fifth and she now ranks 16[SUP]th[/SUP] on the national list. Hunsucker is also 11[SUP]th[/SUP] in the west region rankings.

    On the men’s side, Cameron Hutchins threw his season-best in the hammer throw with a toss of 178-5, passing his mark of 175-6, to place sixth. Brady Rutt recorded a personal-best and took ninth with a throw of 171-3.
