PROVO -- BYU head coaches Craig Poole and Mark Robison will take their women’s and men’s track and field teams to Palo Alto, California this weekend to compete in the annual Stanford Invitational against some of the top competition in the nation.

“This meet is usually a big meet with a lot of great competition,” Poole said. “Most of the better teams from the Western U.S. attend, so there will be a lot of great athletes competing this weekend.”

BYU will face competition from elite schools such as Washington, California, Michigan, Oregon, USC, Boston College, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State and Stanford. Several other schools will be represented at the meet as well.

Indoor National Championship contenders Lacey Cramer, Mindy McClurkin, Rachel Fisher and Amy Otis will see their first outdoor competition of the season.

“I think all of our athletes our ready,” Poole said. “This is their first outdoor competition of the season, so I do not expect us to set the world on fire, but we should have several strong performances.”

The collegiate portion of the meet will begin Friday at 12:00 p.m. MST with the men’s 5000-meter run, and is scheduled to conclude on Saturday 5:12 p.m. MST with the men’s 4x400-meter relay.
