FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Colorado State will play host to the Mountain West Conference track and field championships beginning Wednesday at Jack Christiansen Track.
"We're excited to showcase Colorado State and Fort Collins," said Head Coach Brian Bedard. "It's a great track and field city and we hope to have a great turnout."
Wednesday and Thursday will consist of the heptathlon and decathlon events, beginning at 12 p.m. MST each day. Competition resumes Friday at 10 a.m. MST with the women's hammer throw.
Admission is free Wednesday and Thursday, while tickets for Friday and Saturday are $5 for adults and $3 for students and children. All-session passes are available at $8 for adults and $5 for students and children.
CSU last hosted the championships at Jack Christiansen Track in 2005 when the Rams finished second in the women's standings and third in the men's.
"We have an extremely young team," added Bedard. "This season has been a lot of learning on the go and we've had to have a majority of athletes grow-up in a hurry. This weekend I expect great attitudes and efforts from all our athletes."
Live stats will be available throughout the week at: http://www.rtspt.com/events/mwc/2011outdoor/
"We have a chance to have some conference champions," mentioned Bedard. "Hosting on our own facility is good for such a young team and I know our athletes are pumped to be competing at home."
