    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. –Senior Brianne Beemer competed in the meet of her life Friday at the USA Indoor Championships, breaking the University of Colorado’s pentathlon school record that has stood for over 20 years. Placing fourth overall with a score of 4,059, Beemer beat the pentathlon school record previously held by Pam Owen (4046).

    “I am so blessed to have an unbelievable support group making today possible!” Beemer said. “Having my coach and teammates here, loved ones cheering from Colorado and friendly faces of professional pentathletes is special.”

    Beemer’s performance starting with the 60-meter hurdles (8.85) and placing fourth in the high jump (5-8), “set the stage for what was to come, by earning nearly 100 points above her personal record pace,” said Coach Malone. Beemer cleared a height of 5-8 which become her new PR in that event, she also threw a 35-6.34 in the shot put and, earned a new long jump best at 18-5.

    Malone spoke highly about Beemer, stating “she is a courageous competitor and earned every point of the new school record today. Bri has dedicated herself to being a technician in each of her events as well as laying her heart and soul out on the track everyday in practice. Bri’s dedication over the past five years was the driving force to break our 20-year-old school record. I am so incredibly happy for her achievement and the legacy she has created at CU.”

    Beemer’s teammates competing along side her Friday also had some notable performances. Genny Mayden achieved two personal best records, in the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 9.07, also in the high jump clearing 5-4.5. Mayden improved her overall Pentathlon score to 3795 making that her overall PR.

    In the women’s 60-meter hurdles Abrianna Torres ran a time of 9.01, which is now her new personal record for this event.

    Malone was very excited about her athletes’ performances.

    “It is an honor to have four Colorado pentathletes compete at he USA Championships. This is the first time in school history and USA Combined events Championship history that one school was represented by four athletes. We have something very special at CU and I am so tremendously proud of Bri, Genny, Brittany and Abrianna’s efforts today at the USA Championships!”

    These women were not alone in Albuquerque, sophomore Mark Jones competed in the men’s high jump. Jones placed sixth overall and cleared a new best height of 7-2.25 beating his previous best of 7-1.5. This height also moves Jones up a spot in the record books to have the third best high jump height in CU history.

    In a whole different meet senior Joe Morris competed at the Arkansas Final Qualifier, he placed seventh in the 200-meter with a time of 22.43. Morris was the only Buff competing in this final qualifier meet.
