Provo • BYU's men's and women's track teams will be represented by 42 athletes at the NCAA West Preliminary this week in Fayetteville, Ark.
The NCAA regional will be held Thursday through Saturday at the John McDonnell Field on the campus of the University of Arkansas. Because several BYU athletes qualified in more than one event, the Cougars will be chasing a total of 49 qualifying marks for the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore, next month.
BYU's men's team is especially strong this year and looking for a high finish at both meets. The BYU men had the second-most qualifying marks in the country, 32, behind Oregon's 36.
