Teams Head to Colorado Seeking Consistency
Jan. 17, 2013
LARAMIE, Wyo. - Following a weekend of multiple athletes posting personal bests and top finishes, the Wyoming track and field teams travel to their third meet of the year at the Potts Indoor Invitational in Boulder, Colo.
Held at the University of Colorado's Balch Fieldhouse, the Wyoming squads will face the Buffaloes in addition to a wide range of junior college and Division II Front Range schools.
"What we're looking for is consistency now," said Wyoming coach Bryan Berryhill. "We've had a couple of meets now, so our goal is to keep getting better as we approach the conference meet in a few weeks. For the athletes who didn't compete in Nebraska, we hope to get a good look at them to see where they're at. We'll travel a smaller squad to this meet, but we hope those who do compete will continue to improve."
Action begins Friday at 3 p.m. with the pole vault and high jumps. On Saturday, the field events are slated for a 10 a.m. start while the running events will begin at 2 p.m. The meet will conclude at approximately 7:15 p.m. with the 4x400-meter relays.
At the Holiday Inn Invitational over the weekend, senior thrower Mollie Dahl earned the No. 9 spot on the all-time UW indoor shot put list with a throw of 48'1.75", while freshman McKenzie Brogan achieved the No. 10 spot on the all-time indoor 400-meter dash list with a time of 56.62.
On the men's side, senior Brandon Douglass broke the school record in the 60-meter hurdles with an 8.11 with several others posting personal bests.
