Powell and Pratt Rev-up Wilson Motor Invite

Competing for the Cougars at the Wilson Motor Invite Pole Vaulter Trent Powell Earned Himself a Provisional Spot at NCAA Championships.

LOGAN -- While the majority of BYU men's track and field went to Bozeman, Mont. to compete at Montana State this weekend, several BYU men stayed closer to home and competed at the Wilson Motor Invite hosted by Utah State University in Logan, Utah.

While several BYU athletes competed unattached, a few BYU men earned top finishes and even set season best records at the USU Nelson Fieldhouse.

Running his season best time of 6.83 was Nate Soleberg in the 60-meter coming in a tenth-of-a second ahead of his competitor to take first place.

Adding top performance's for BYU was the men's pole vaulting team who placed first through fourth. Vaulting for the Cougars was first place winner Trent Powell who jumped 17-04.50 (5.30m), Robbie Pratt's second place with the same height and Curtis Pugsley's fourth place in 16-04.75 (5.00m), each individuals season best mark.

"We had the pole vaulter's go to Utah State because Montana's pole vault pit is horrible," men's head coach Mark Robison said.

The men certainly didn't mind though as Powell and Pratt's high marks hit the NCAA provisional qualifying mark in the pole vault.

Also competing for the Cougars was the tag-team brothers Nic and Dan Arrhenius who took first and second place in the men's shot put with distances of 61-09.00 (18.82m) and 57-04.25 (17.48m) respectively.
