More than a month after opening the season with a successful debut at Eastern Washington’s Candy Cane Invitational, a handful of Montana’s indoor track and field athletes will be back in action Monday in Bozeman.
Montana State will host a pentathlon on Monday at Brick Breeden Fieldhouse and a heptathlon on Monday and Tuesday as the rapid-fire indoor season begins in earnest.
The Grizzlies will compete every week leading up to the Big Sky Conference championships, which will be held the final weekend of February in Pocatello, Idaho.
Montana opened its season the first weekend of December at Cheney with four school records and 10 event victories, then had its usual untimely break for the holidays.
“We won’t see most of the athletes until next week, so it’s too early to tell how they’ll come back, but at least for the multi-event athletes who have been here, it seems to be really good,” said UM coach Brian Schweyen. “They’ve maintained what they had, and things look really good.”
Competing in Monday’s pentathlon will be senior Nicole Stroot, juniors Jenna Dukovcic and Erika McLeod, and freshman Hannah Coburn.
