PROVO, Utah – The BYU women’s track and field team kicks off the 2013 indoor season this weekend with the annual BYU Cougar Invitational and the Blue & Orange Invitational.

BYU’s throwers will compete in Provo, Utah, while the rest of the women’s team heads to Boise, Idaho.

“Following a long break, these two meets will let us see who followed their holiday workouts,” head coach Patrick Shane said, “but there will also be some surprises. Some of our athletes will get great marks we didn’t expect.”

The women’s events for the Cougar Invitational are set to begin on Thursday at 8:45 p.m. MST with the discus in the Indoor Practice Facility and will continue through Saturday morning. All other events will take place in the Smith Fieldhouse.
