The University of Wyoming is hosting the Mountain West Conference Track and Field Championships this week. Head Coach Bryan Berryhill says the home meet is special for the Cowboys and Cowgirls and that both squads have high expectations. Sprinter and school record holder Kereston Thomas says she and her teammates are excited.
“Especially since this meet is here on our track I know that we will come out here with a lot of fire and a lot of excitement," Thomas says. "I know that our team is going to put on a show and I hope we will place in the top three for both our teams.”
Thomas is among those favored in their events. Wyoming’s men’s team has not finished higher than fifth in the conference meet since 2002 and the women have not finished above 7th place since 2005.
