PROVO, Utah – The No. 13 men's track and field team heads to Albuquerque, N.M., this weekend for the annual Cherry & Silver Invitational. The University of New Mexico will host the event.

"It'll be a good test for us," head coach Mark Robison said. "What we hope for each week is to have a marked improvement. Our expectations are that we will be better than we were this last week. We want to move up a little bit on the rankings list and compete better."

BYU will face some good competition at the meet, including No. 15 Stanford, Colorado State and California. The invitational will be the first meet away from Provo for several of BYU's freshman.

"We've got a lot of young guys and kids coming off missions that haven't done a lot in college," Robison said. "The meet we had last week was kind of an intermediate step for them. With this trip they'll have lots of good competition and it'll be a better test for us."

Among the Cougars to watch will be Fan Fan Charles and Braydon Bringhurst. In last week's BYU Invitational, Charles finished the 60-meter dash with a personal-best time of 6.75 seconds, grabbing second place. Bringhurst took the top place in the pole vault, clearing 17-00.75 and should challenge again this week for first place.

The men's events start Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. MST with the pole vault. More information about event times can be found at the event schedule page. Visit during the meet for live results.
