There were unbridled tears as students mourned a university athletics star shot dead by her enraged ex. Lauren McCluskey, 21, was a senior at the University of Utah. She was a star of track and field, and was memorialized at a vigil on campus Wednesday night. “Lauren was always a driven athlete and gave 110 percent in everything she did. The loss of her sweet spirit to our team is truly devastating,” one friend said Wednesday night.
