PROVO -- After a record-breaking weekend, the BYU track and field teams return home to host the BYU Clarence Robison Invitational beginning Wednesday.

“We really hope the weather stays good for us this week,” said BYU men’s track and field head coach Mark Robison. “Typically this has been a great meet for us because our athletes are more rested from finals. We had a great week last week and I hope that we have even more people qualify this weekend.”

Coming off a strong weekend at the Utah State and Mt. Sac Relays, the Cougars look forward to being at home and qualifying more individuals for Regionals.

“We are very excited for our home meet,” said women’s distance coach Patrick Shane. “This is a great opportunity for fans and family to see our athletes compete. It will also be important for those athletes that have not yet established themselves on a regional or national level to get qualifying marks.”

Events begin Wednesday, kicking off with the decathlon at 12:15 p.m. MT. The heptathlon will begin early in the afternoon.

The Cougars will be going up against 13 teams, including Boise State, Idaho State, Southern Utah University, Utah, Utah State, Utah Valley and Weber State.
