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.

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.
