Wyoming Puts Four on MWC 10th Anniversary Indoor Track and Field Team

Oct. 16, 2008

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -

The Mountain West Conference announced its 10th Anniversary Men's and Women's Indoor Track & Field Teams on Wednesday, as selected by a combined panel of media, institutional and conference personnel, as well as an on-line fan poll.

On the list from the University of Wyoming were Jessica Fox and Shauna Smith for the Cowgirls and Jason Gervais and Quincy Howe for the Cowboys.

While running for the Cowgirls, Jessica Fox was a three-time All-American and a nine-time MWC Champion. During the indoor seasons she was the 200-meter champion in `04 and `05, she was also the 400-meter champion in `03 and `05. She currently ranks second in the 60-meter dash and 400-meter dash, first in the 200-meter dash and is a part of the fastest 4x400-meter relay team in indoor Cowgirl history.

Shauna Smith was one of the best all-time for the Cowgirls. She was a five-time All-American, and a five-time MWC Champion. Just for the indoor Cowgirl records, she currently ranks first in the 60-meter hurdles, the 400-meter dash and was a part of the 4x400-meter relay team in `04. Smith sits in third place all-time in the 60-meter dash.

Jason Gervais was one of the most dominant throwers in University of Wyoming history. He still owns both of the throwing event records during the indoor season, the 35lb weight throw and the shot put. Gervais was a seven-time All-American and a four-time MWC Champion.

Current UW assistant coach Quincy Howe, along with Gervais, was one of the most dominant jumpers in his time, if not the best ever at UW. While competing for the Cowboys, Howe was honored as an All-American in `01 and `02 in the triple jump. He owns eight conference championships and was never beaten in the event during his competition in the WAC and MWC. He currently owns Wyoming and MWC records in both the indoor and outdoor triple jump events.

In order to be eligible for consideration, candidates must have won an event at the Mountain West Conference Championship at least once in their careers. The conference will name a similar team for the outdoor season later this year.
