Indoor championships

Utah miler Amanda Mergaert has accomplished quite a bit in helping establish the track program, including several NCAA outdoor appearances. But Mergaert will compete in her first NCAA Indoor Championships when she takes the track Friday in Fayetteville, Ark.

Mergaert earned her automatic qualifying bid after clocking a school-record 4 minutes, 35.35 seconds at the Husky Invitational on Feb. 8, the 12th fastest time in the country.

While Utah is sending one runner, BYU will have a handful of athletes compete for a national title, including Kelsey Brown, who qualified in the 800-meter race with a time of 2:04.94, which ranks seventh in the nation.

On the men’s side, four Cougars will travel to Fayetteville — Victor Weirich (pole vault), Jared Ward (5,000), Tylor Thatcher (5,000) and Ryan Waite (800).
