LOGAN, Utah -
Twenty-two members of Utah State’s track & field teams are set to make a quick trip to Ogden, where they will compete in the Weber State-hosted Twilight Meet on Wednesday, May 3, at Stewart Stadium.
Wednesday’s field events are slated to begin at 2 p.m. with the women’s javelin, while the track events get underway at 4:35 p.m. with the women’s 3,000m steeplechase. The women’s and men’s 4x400m relay races will cap the day’s events shortly after 8 p.m.
At the 2016 Twilight Meet, the Aggies collected 10 top-five finishes. Senior AJ Boully finished first in the 400m with a time of 46.43, which ranks fourth all-time in school history. Utah State’s 4x100m relay team consisting of Parker Bluth and Nic Bowens, who have both graduated, sophomore Chance Parker and junior Brady Martin took first in the event with a time of 39.50, which ranks second all-time in school history. Sophomore Samuel Wing placed first in the 400m hurdles with a time of 54.36, while fellow sophomore Leaugen Fray tied for second in the high jump with a leap of 2.01m (6-07.00).
On the women’s side, sophomore Whitney Wilcox placed first in the 400m with a personal-best time of 56.32 and she helped anchor the 4x400 relay team, which also consisted of Kaitlyn Wilcox, who has since graduated, senior Brittany Rawlins and junior Breann Bate, that took first with a time of 3:47.56. Rawlins also competed in the 100m and took second with a time of 12.38.
Utah State comes into the Twilight Meet fresh off a solid showing at the BYU-hosted Clarence Robison Invitational last weekend in Provo, Utah. The Aggies captured five gold medals as part of 30 top-five finishes. Boully led the way by capturing the 400m hurdles title with a time of 50.82 and then anchored the 4x400m relay team, which crossed the finish line first with a time of 3:10.01.
For his efforts last weekend, Boully was tabbed the Mountain West Men’s Outdoor Track Athlete of the Week, marking the third time in his career he has received that honor. Boully’s 400m hurdles mark ranks second in the conference only to his previous season-best time of 49.58. Nationally, the time ranks in the top 15 this season.
The Mountain West Outdoor Championships will be held in Logan on May 10-13, just 12 days before the First Round of the NCAA Championships in Austin, Texas, on May 25-27.
