Feb. 7, 2013
RENO, Nev. -
The University of Nevada track and field team will head to Nampa, Idaho and Fayetteville, Ark., to compete at the Boise State Team Challenge and the Tyson Invitational hosted by the University of Arkansas this weekend.
THOUGHTS FROM COACH TWIGGS
"Our overall goal at the Boise State Team Challenge is to improve and execute," head coach Shantel Twiggs said. "This is our last opportunity to compete before the MW Indoor Championships and we are looking to pull together as a team and hit our stride. The team has been working hard and to see all of their hard work pay off in quality results is a joy as a coach. The Tyson Invitational is one of the premiere sprint events in the nation. The location in Arkansas will also play host to the NCAA Indoor Nationals and we are hoping to see a few members of the team qualify for that meet next month. We are all pretty excited to get the chance to get on the facility and put up some great marks while maintaining composure as we compete against the nation's best."
