Logan, Utah -
For the first and only time this season, Utah State's men and women's track & field teams will be competing within the friendly confines of their home stadium. The Aggies, along with athletes from seven other teams, will compete Friday and Saturday, Apr. 18-19, in the Mark Faldmo Invitational at Ralph Maughan Track Stadium in Logan, Utah.
Competing in the meet will be athletes from BYU, Gillette College (Wyo.), Idaho State, Utah, Utah Valley, Weber State and Westminster College (Utah), along with USU.
The Mark Faldmo Invitational will begin Friday at 4:00 p.m. (MT) with the men and women's hammer throw, as well as the women's pole vault. Friday's competition will end at 5:00 p.m. with the men and women's 3,000m run. Action will resume on Saturday with the men and women's discus, shot put and long jump at 10:00 a.m. and the meet will wrap up at 3:15 p.m. with the men and women's 4x400m relay race.
"The home meet is always the focal-event of the year for the track team, it's the only meet we host," said Aggie veteran head coach Gregg Gensel. "It gives an opportunity for the athletes to showcase their talents in front of not only their family and friends but also their teammates and people in the valley. We want to show people that we have a good team and give them a chance to witness it first hand."
Full results and a recap of each day's action will be posted to www.UtahStateAggies.com following the completion of events.
