LARAMIE, Wyo. - With the championship portion of the season in sight, the Wyoming track and field teams head to Walnut, Calif., this week for the Mt. SAC Relays and the Beach Invitational searching for NCAA qualifying marks.

Held at the historic Hilmer Lodge Stadium at Mt. San Antonio College, the Mt. SAC Relays is one of the premier track meets in the country and brings in some of the nation's top athletes.

"It's our biggest meet of the year outside of conference," said Wyoming coach Bryan Berryhill. "It's a chance for athletes we believe can earn regional qualifying marks to get it done. We're excited to go out there. The weather forecast looks perfect. It's a good opportunity for our sprinters and distance runners to get good times at sea level and for our throwers to compete in warmer weather."

Junior Jenna Mann will compete in the heptathlon beginning Wednesday afternoon with the first four events and continue Thursday afternoon with the final three. The combined events are held at Azusa Pacific in nearby Azusa, Calif.

Also competing Thursday will be Abi Bever in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Later in the evening, Nick Ekel and Holly Page will compete in the 10,000-meter run.

UW athletes continue action on Friday beginning at 11 a.m. MT with Joe Plante and Mark Sparks in the hammer throw. Page will conclude Friday's events for Wyoming by running the 5,000-meter late in the evening.

Following the Mt. SAC Relays, Wyoming will head to Cerritos College in Norwalk, Calif., on Saturday for the Beach Invitational hosted by Long Beach State.
