Cougars Head to Idaho for Snake River Open

PROVO -- In the second week of competition, BYU will travel to Pocatello, Idaho to compete against schools from Utah and Idaho in the Snake River Open.

The Cougars will be taking a much larger contingent of athletes to the meet than they did to last week's season opener at Weber State.

"We are excited for this weekend becausewe will basically be at full strength," BYU men's head coach Mark Robison said. "After this weekend we will have a better idea of where we are at and what we need to do to improve."

The teams will be taking larger numbers to Pocatello but will still be using the meet to look at where the team is at, in terms of development, in the early stages of the season.

"We are trying to give our athletes a broad base of experience," BYU women's head coach Craig Poole said. "We will be running stronger this week but we still won't have the specializations determined."

Other teams that will be competing at the Snake River Open include Southern Utah, Utah State, Boise State, Utah, Weber State and Idaho State, Ricks College, Northwest Nazarene and Treasure Valley Community College.

The meet is scheduled to begin Sat., Sept. 19 at 10 a.m. and events will be held throughout the day.
