PROVO, Utah — BYU’s women’s track and field will be traveling to College Station, Texas, to compete in the 11-team Texas A&M Invitational on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 15 and 16.

Texas A&M, Avalon Christian, Baylor, Oklahoma State, South Carolina, Texas, TCU, Texas State, UTSA, and SFA are among the other universities competing in this weekend's invitational.

Coach Eyestone said there should be plenty of good competition and a good opportunity to go down to a different part of the country.

"Texas A&M is one of the track power houses certainly, especially their sprints and jumps. I think we’ll be able to match up with them pretty well and that’s certainly in the distance events and little distance events we’ll be pretty strong,” Eyestone said.

Eyestone said their goal for this invitational is to get in and get the best performance possible to progress towards their fastest times later on in the indoor season.

“I’d be a little bit surprised to be pulling out our fastest times of the year this early, but it is an important step in the process of just improving one week to the next and that’s what we hope to do this week,” Eyestone said.

Athletes to watch among the women attending the invitational will be Shea Collinsworth, Anginae Monteverde (pole-vault), Alyssa Monteverde-Dalton (60-meter hurdles), and Andrea Stapleton (high jump).

“Shea Collinsworth will be competing—she’s one of our returning All-Americans from last year and anytime she gets on the track it's noteworthy and she’ll try to be posting a good time there,” Eyestone said. “I think she has a very good ability and capability of winning her event and posting a time that will hopefully get her progressing towards one of those top 16 times in the country.”

Eyestone said there are going to be a lot of other women going this weekend and hopefully they have good days.

The event results will be available at FlashRecords.com.
