PROVO, Utah -- Chase Dalton sits in third place after the first four events of the men's heptathlon at the Air Force Invitational. Dalton, with a score of 2,818, trails Colorado State athletes Josh McMillan and Justin Green, who have 2,867 and 2,848 points, respectively.

"We're doing a lot better so far than we were two weeks ago," head coach Mark Robison said. "We're progressing and making improvements, so I think we're on the right track. We'll see what we can do tomorrow."

BYU's Isaac Robison is in 10th place with a score of 2,574 and Joshua Weirich, who usually competes in the heptathlon for the Cougars, did not make the trip because of an injury.
