LARAMIE, Wyo. - After posting a successful 2011-12 season, the University of Wyoming track and field program hopes to continue the momentum as the 2012-13 schedule was released Thursday morning.
"We've got a good mix of dual meets and big invitationals that will expose us to talent from across the country," said first-year track and field coach Bryan Berryhill. "We'll also be hosting two events between the indoor and outdoor seasons to give our fans an opportunity to see our development from the beginning of the year up to a few weeks before the championship meets."
The season begins with the Power Meet, which Wyoming hosts on Friday, Dec. 7, at the War Memorial Fieldhouse, taking on regional schools from the Front Range.
"We want to increase the number of meets we host every year, but this first indoor meet will be a good chance to see where we're at before leaving for Christmas break," Berryhill said.
During the indoor season, the Wyoming squads will compete twice in Lincoln, Neb., and Colorado Springs, Colo. The Holiday Inn Invite (Jan. 11) and Frank Sevigne Husker Invite (Feb. 1-2) will occur in Lincoln, while the Air Force Invitational (Jan. 25) and Air Force Team Challenge (Feb. 9) take place in Colorado Springs.
Also during the indoor season will be short trips to Boulder, Colo., and Golden, Colo., for the Potts Indoor Invitational (Jan. 18) and Colorado School of Mines Twilight (Feb. 15), respectively.
The MW Indoor Championships will be hosted by Boise State in Boise, Idaho, from Feb. 21-23 before the NCAA Indoor Championships March 8-9 in Fayetteville, Ark.
The outdoor season begins March 16 with another trip to Boulder for the Potts Outdoor Invitational, and also has two trips to both Palo Alto, Calif., and Colorado Springs.
Wyoming will compete in two of the most competitive meets in the nation starting with the Stanford Invitational on March 22-23 and the Mt. Sac Relays in Walnut, Calif., from April 18-21.
The Cowboys host the Wyoming Dual on May 3 at the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex before competing at the MW Outdoor Championships from May 8-11 in Las Vegas.
Qualifying individuals finish the year at the NCAA West Preliminaries in Austin, Texas, from May 23-25 and the NCAA Outdoor Championships from June 5-8 in Eugene, Ore.
