LOGAN, Utah – Utah State’s track & field teams will compete at the Boise State-hosted Jacksons/New Balance Invitational on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 3-4., in Nampa, Idaho, while a small group of Aggie multi-eventers travel to the New Mexico Collegiate Track & Field Classic, Feb. 3-4., in Albuquerque, N.M.
Day one of competition at the Jacksons/New Balance Invitational will begin at 1:30 p.m., while the first day of competition will conclude at 5:45 p.m. Day two will get started at 9:35 a.m., with the invitational coming to a close at 4:35 p.m.
The Aggie multi-events corps will begin on Friday at 4 p.m., wrapping up the first day at 7:45 p.m. Saturday will get started at 10 a.m. and the New Mexico Classic will end at 2:55 p.m.
“We’ve started out strong,” said veteran USU head coach Gregg Gensel. “We’re now getting back to the basics, working hard in both the weight room and on the track. This is also an opportunity to see where our multi-events group is at, as they will get experience with the track they will compete on for the conference championships. The rest of our team will work hard at the Idaho meet, making improvements and continuing our goal to finish the best we can at the conference meet.”
In last week’s action, Utah State’s distance runners broke a pair of school records as junior Dillon Maggard finished fourth in the mile with a time of 4:01.68, while sophomore Cierra Simmons placed 30th in the 3,000m with a time of 9:38.11. Additionally, Maggard was named the Mountain West Men's Track Athlete of the Week for his record-breaking performance.
Utah State’s men placed second at last year’s Mountain West Indoor and Outdoor Championships, while the Aggie women finished ninth and sixth, respectively.
The Mountain West Indoor Championships will be held in Albuquerque, N.M., on Feb. 23-25, just 13 days before the NCAA Indoor Championships in College Station, Texas, on March 10-11.
