FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Colorado State men’s and women’s track and field teams are back on the road for their second meet of indoor season Saturday. The Rams travel 4 hours north to Gillette, Wyo., for a Border War Duel against the Cowboys.
Field events are slated to begin at 11:15 a.m. at the Campbell County Recreation Center, while the running events will start at 12:30 p.m. The Rams runners will be competing on a six-lane, 200-meter track.
“The events that we have athletes entered in we will definitely want to compete at our best,” commented Head Coach Brian Bedard. “It’s a great opportunity for some of our young talent to get another meet in at a different venue. We look forward to the challenge and if it works out, maybe it can become an annual event for us.”
Bedard is resting some athletes that competed last week at the Air Force All-Comers Meet, and will open up the distance and mid-distance crew next week at back down in Colorado Springs for the Air Force Invitational.
