"Today was a preliminary start, a start of a few events for the weekend," veteran Utah State head coach Gregg Gensel said. "We showed pretty well with Nic Bowens in the 200m and Briton Page in the 1,500m. We had some good performances by our throwers. So, we are looking forward to tomorrow in what we are doing."
