PROVO, Utah – The BYU women’s track and field team will be on the road Thursday Jan. 23 through Saturday Jan. 25 competing in the 24th annual Air Force Academy Invitational.

“The Air Force meet is a great one and a good opportunity for us to continue the roll we are on,” head coach Ed Eyestone said. “We are excited for this meet because the multis get to compete again.”

The Air Force Invitational boasts a loaded field as well as a full schedule of events. The women will have their second chance of the season to compete in the pentathlon, as well as other individual events.

Alyssa Monteverde will be participating in the pentathlon Thursday after winning the event at the BYU Invitational. This will only be her second opportunity of the indoor season to earn extra points in the pentathlon.

Deezbaa Whaley will also be throwing the weight again Friday, with hopes of continuing her successful streak and besting her mark from the Lobo Collegiate in N.M. Jan. 18, where she earned second place on the top ten all-time at BYU in the weight throw.

Real time updates on the event will be broadcasted on the Falcon’s twitter account (@af_trackfield).
