"The kids competed well in the short hurdles and did a nice job in 20-mph headwinds," Wyoming coach Don Yentes said. "They didn't have the best lanes but we were in a stiff competition. The women's 4-by-4 was great, and Dahl and Daniels did a heck of a job with personal records. Some good things happened here and I'm pretty pleased."
