Sophomore Caleb Her Many Horses was seventh in the 800 (1:55.58), and fifth in the 1-mile run (4:12.21.)
"That was pretty good for our first meet (in 2012)," Wyoming coach Don Yentes said. "We didn't have half our team running in our main events, but I saw some pretty pleasing things. We got through unscathed (as far as injuries) so I'm pretty pleased with that. It was a solid effort and the kids could tell that they were close."
The UW track teams will compete again in the Husker Invitational in Lincoln, Neb., starting on Friday.
