PROVO, Utah – The No. 17 BYU men’s track and field team wrapped up competition at both the Air Force and Washington Invitationals on Saturday, with 15 athletes finishing in the top 10 of their respective events.
Pole vaulter Victor Weirich was the highlight of the day for the Cougars. Weirich, who is still regaining form after an ankle injury earlier this year, won the seeded pole vault on a short approach, clearing a height of 17-06.50. Fellow Cougar Braydon Bringhurst finished fourth in the event with a mark of 16-06.75.
“The pole vault was definitely our best event today,” head coach Mark Robison said. “It was great to see Victor perform so well, especially on a short approach. We didn’t run as well as we’d have liked today, but our team made some improvements.”
