UW Track Takes On Air Force Team Challenge
Jan. 25, 2012
LARAMIE, Wyo. - The indoor track and field season for the University of Wyoming will get under way Thursday when the Cowboys and Cowgirls head to the Air Force Academy for three days of action.
What the coach thinks
"We're going to run a majority of our athletes," Wyoming coach Don Yentes said. "We have a few kids who have some minor physical ailments that we won't be taking. Because of our circumstances, we just have to see where we're at and where these three weeks (have left us). It's about trying to see where they're at, and a lot of our kids are in pretty good form. It's a short time until indoor conference, so we have to get in pretty good form quick."
Who to watch
Senior Ashley Hutchinson is ranked No. 15 in the nation in the women's 20-pound weight throw. Freshman Shreese Daniels is ranked 30th overall in the weight throw and has the top freshman mark in the nation (61 feet, 6 ¾ inches).
Senior Joe Plante is ranked No. 22 in the men's 35-pound weight throw.
