Robert Shine Track and Field Invite Cancelled

Feb. 17, 2006

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The 2006 Robert Shine Indoor Track and Field Invitational which was scheduled to take place Friday evening at the War Memorial Fieldhouse in Laramie was cancelled due to both inclement weather in the region and transportation problems.

Air Force, Colorado State and Wyoming were scheduled to compete in the invite but Air Force was unable to attend due to the weather and Colorado State was stranded between Laramie and Fort Collins with a broken down bus. Ultimately, neither team made it to Laramie and the invite had to be cancelled.

The Wyoming track and field team will return to action next Thursday as they travel to Albuquerque, N.M. for the 2006 Mountain West Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships. The championships will run from Thursday, Feb. 23 through Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Albuquerque Convention Center.
