The Aggies begin their competition in the 2014 MWC Track and Field championships in Laramie, Wyo., on Friday. They hope to build on their promising finishes in the indoor championships when the men placed fourth and the women placed sixth.
Last year the USU men finished second and the women were seventh in their final WAC championship appearance.
The Aggies return four athletes who won WAC outdoor titles in junior Rahcel Orr (high jump, 2013), Bryce Hall (discus, 2012), Kyle McKenna (10,000m, 2012) and Chari Hawkins (heptathlon, 2011).
