SAN DIEGO – The BYU men’s track and field team performed well, including four first-place finishes, at the 34th Aztec Track & Field Invitational, although the meet was cut short due to inclement weather.

BYU finished top three in the decathlon, with sophomore Kevin Nielsen placing first with 7030 points and Chase Dalton and Joshua Weirich took second and third, posting 6846 and 6840 respectively.

In the field events, Victor Weirich finished first in the pole vault, clearing 5.36m (17’ 07.00”), and Russell Nielson and Dakota John finished second and fourth in the high jump, with heights of 2.05m (6’ 08.75”) and 2.00m (6’ 06.75”) respectively.

BYU swept the Javelin, with Chris Reno taking first (66.56m), brothers Blaine and Kyle Baker finishing second (66.34m) and third (62.97m) and Keith Keller coming in fourth (62.97m).

Michael Andraszczyk was BYU’s only first place finish in the track events, finishing with a time of 1:53.39 in the 800m, and Josh Adams finished third in the 3000m Steeplechase, finishing in 9:08.75.

The Cougars will return to California next weekend to compete in the USC Invitational on March 23-24.
