PROVO -- The BYU men’s women’s track and field teams will hit the road this weekend, sending part of the team to Seattle for the Husky Invitational and another portion to Colorado Springs for the Air Force Invitational.

“The meet in Colorado will serve as a conference preview for us,” women’s head coach Craig Poole said. “All of the conference teams will be there, with the exception of TCU and San Diego State. There will also be some talent from outside the MWC, and that will allow us to compete and get some good marks before conference.”

This weekend of meets marks the last competition BYU will face before the MWC Indoor Championships on February 25-27 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The women’s team enters this weekend with a No. 2 national ranking, and will look to improve its national standing before the conference season.

“We will send mostly distance runners up to Washington, but there will be some other athletes up there too,” Poole said. “Our goal from that meet is to put up as many national qualifying marks as possible. We would like some national marks in Colorado too, but its our main focus in Washington.”

The Air Force Invitational will begin at 1:00 p.m. MST on Friday with the men’s weight throw, and is scheduled to conclude on Saturday at 4:05 p.m. MST with the men’s 4x400-meter relay. The Husky Invitational will start at 5:00 p.m. MST with the women’s distance medley relay and will finish at 4:55 p.m. MST with the men’s 4x400-meter relay.

Results for both meets can be found at www.tfrrs.org at the conclusion of the meets on Saturday night.
