LOGAN, Utah - Utah State's track & field teams are set to lift the lid on their 2018 indoor season, as they travel to Nampa, Idaho, for the Boise State-hosted Ed Jacoby Invitational this weekend. The meet will be held at the Ford Idaho Center, Friday through Saturday, Jan. 12-13.
Action begins at 2:30 p.m., on Friday with the 60-meter dash for the women's pentathlon. More pentathlon and heptathlon events will follow. Additionally, the women's weight throw, men's pole vault and mens and women's distance medley will be held on Friday.
The rest of the events will take place on Saturday, beginning with the heptathlon 60m hurdles and men's high jump. The day ends with the men's 4x400m relay at 3:30 p.m.
Overall, Utah State returns nine athletes who garnered all-Mountain West honors during the 2017 indoor season, highlighted by senior Dillon Maggard, who earned All-America honors in the mile. Senior Clay Lambourne will look to end his career as a four-time conference champion in the 800m.
Other Aggies who earned all-MW honors include senior Brady Martin in the 400m, senior David Hirschmann in the shot put, senior Jordan Beutler in the 4,000m DMR, junior Leaugen Fray in both the long jump and the high jump, and sophomore Brody Smith in the 4,000m DMR.
The Aggie men placed third at last year's MW Indoor Championships, while the women took ninth.
This year, the MW Indoor Championships are hosted by New Mexico from Feb. 22-24, less than two weeks before the NCAA Indoor Championships, which are from March 9-10, in College Station, Texas.
