Friday begins at 10 a.m., with the final men's heptathlon events and will conclude at 4:30 p.m., with the men's and women's 5,000 meter finals. The last day of competition will open with the men's shot put at 10 a.m., and finish with the men's and women's 4x400m relays at 2:30 p.m.

Colorado State enters the meet as the reigning champion on the men's side, while the Colorado State women seek to capture three-straight MW titles for the first time in program history. A total of 17 teams (six men, 11 women) will compete in the meet.
Utah State's men have two individuals and a relay team look to defend their titles. Senior Clay Lambourne battles for a four-peat in the 800m, while junior Leaugen Fray, who leads the MW in the long jump this season, will look for his second-consecutive long jump title. Along with Lambourne, the men's 4x400-meter relay team will also look to four-peat.
Utah State has also captured the last four men's 400m titles, with senior Brady Martin winning the event in 2016. Martin's personal-best time of 46.26 is a MW Championship record, and the second-best time in MW history.
Senior Dillon Maggard owns the MW's best 5,000m time this season with a school-record mark of 13:40.59 and is coming of an All-American cross country campaign.
On the women's side, junior Brenn Flint is the shot put leader in the conference with a school-record mark of 16.53m (54-2.75). Junior Alyssa Hirschi will compete in the pentathlon and owns the seventh-best score in school history (3,539 points).
