FORT COLLINS, Colo.—The Colorado State indoor track and field team will make its second trip of the season to the University of Wyoming to compete in the Shine Invitational, while a pole vaulter heads to Golden, Colo., to compete in the Twilight Invite hosted by the Colorado School of Mines.
The Rams will open action Friday at Wyoming, and will compete against several teams including Air Force and Boise State.
“We’re only sending a couple athletes down to Mines, and I’m taking some of the younger throwers to Wyoming,” said Head Coach Brian Bedard. “We’re really just getting a final conference tune-up in, but most of the team is going to rest this weekend.”
The lone Ram competing at the Twilight Invite is pole vaulter Kirk Cooper, while the men competing at Wyoming include Brandon Haynes, Tyson Williams, Cameron Carter, Carson Rowley, Alec Pott, Jack White and Weston Richburg in the shot put; and Williams, Carter, Rowley and Pott in the weight throw.
Most of the Rams will be resting this weekend as they prepare for the Mountain West Conference championships that will be held next weekend.
