FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Colorado State indoor track and field team will participate in two meets this weekend, with both events being held at Big 12 schools.

The Rams will face stiff competition in Lincoln, Neb., on Saturday as they will represent the Mountain West in the third annual Big 12 vs. Mountain West Conference Challenge. The meet, hosted by the University of Nebraska, will feature three teams from each conference (Air Force, Wyoming, Colorado State from the MWC and Kansas State, Missouri, Nebraska from the Big 12). For each event, two athletes are allowed per school, meaning each conference will be represented by six entries per event.

“The three Big 12 schools in this meet are all really good track schools,” said Head Coach Brian Bedard. “As a coaching staff, we want to do well as a conference, but we are more interested in seeing how our athletes compete. This meet will give us a chance to face some solid competition.”

Several other Rams will travel just down the road to Boulder, Colo., where CSU will compete in the Potts Invite, hosted by Colorado. The meet will take place over two days with combined events and pole vault on Friday and the remaining events on Saturday.

“Because we can only take two athletes per event to Nebraska, the CU meet will be good for the rest of our athletes,” said Bedard. “We are still in the process of working our way back from the long break over Christmas, and this will be another competitive environment for us to see where we are at.”
