On your mark, get set…Go.
The B-Y-U Outdoor Track & Field Season is officially underway and the Cougars are ready to run, vault, and throw.
After a long season underneath the roof, the Track and Field athletes are eager to show their stuff at the Annual Texas Relays, the Second Biggest Track & Field event of the year.
“I’ve been going to Texas Relays since I was sophomore , freshmen year of High School and it’s just a great atmosphere. I love going to Texas Relays,” said Texas Native and BYU pole vaulter Victor Weirich.
With over 5000 athletes participating and 50,000 spectators expected to be in attendance, the energy at the track is palpable.
“It just gets you pumped up, your adrenaline is rushing, just cause there are so many people there and just good athletes all around. “
In addition to the relay running events, the Relays feature events from pole vault to javelin and will help BYU get a clear picture of how they stack up against the nation’s best.
“It’s a little early to tell exactly where we stack up against the rest of the nation. But I think here in the next few weeks, Texas Relays will be critical in putting us up on the board,” said Senior Sprinter James Ghormley.
