LOGAN, Utah -- Utah State track & field will host the annual Mark Faldmo Invitational on Friday and Saturday, April 14-15, at Ralph Maughan Track Stadium. The Aggies will also be sending athletes to the 59th annual Mt. SAC Relays, Wednesday through Saturday, April 12-15, in Torrance, Calif.
Friday's events will begin with the women's and men's hammer throw at 4 p.m., while day one of the Mark Faldmo Invitational will conclude with the women's and men's 5,000m.
Saturday kicks off with the men's and women's discus at 10 a.m. The meet will come to a close at 3:15 p.m. with the men's and women's 4x400m relays.
Veteran Utah State head track & field coach Gregg Gensel is excited to host the first home meet of the season and continue USU's preparation in familiar surroundings.
"It's great to have a home meet this week, giving a chance for our student-athletes to show their abilities with friends and families in the audience, said Gensel."
The last time Utah State track & field competed, redshirt freshman won the javelin and broke his own school record with a mark of 73.06m (239-8.25) last weekend at the UCLA-hosted Rafer Johnson/Jackie Joyner-Kersee Invitational. His mark in the javelin ranks first in the Mountain West and eighth in the nation this season. Also, his javelin mark ranks second all-time in Mountain West history.
The Mountain West Outdoor Championships will be held in Logan, Utah on May, 10-13, just 12 days before the First Round of the NCAA Championships in Austin, Texas, on May 25-27.
