PROVO, Utah -- BYU men’s track started off its indoor season with several standout performances at the BYU invitational.
“ I think we had a great first meet,” BYU head coach Ed Eyestone said. “I was really pleased with the effort in our only home meet of the indoor season. We saw a lot of athletes get their seasons off to a good start.”
Chase Dalton took first in the heptathlon and set new personal bests in six of his seven events. His performance was good for second best all-time at BYU in the men’s heptathlon.
Korey Smith took first in the 500 meters in 1:05.04 and was the anchor leg on the 4x400 relay team that took first.
“I wanted to stay focused but also stay calm,” Rockwood said. “I felt great. I’m pleased with how I did but we have a long season in front of us.”
The Cougars compete next weekend at the New Mexico Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 18, in Albuquerque, N.M.
