Complete list of qualified BYU athletes

“We’re excited about how many BYU athletes have qualified, and we’re proud of them,” BYU head coach Ed Eyestone said. “The goal, however, is to qualify for the championships. We want to get as many athletes as we can to Oregon so we can score as many points as possible as a team."

Martinez and Monteverde are the highest seeds on the women's side in their respective events. Martinez goes in as the ninth seed in the 800m and Monteverde goes in as the 12th seed in the pole vault.

Athletes qualified for the meet by finishing in the top 48 in any individual event or in the top 24 in a relay. Individuals and relay teams placing in the top 12 in Austin will qualify for the NCAA Championships in two weeks in Eugene, Oregon.
