The Utah track & field team had good start to the season despite no practice nor have any racer ever compete inside Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium before, not to mention it being the first time anyone had competed in nearly a year.
Brooke Manson led the group of Utes in College Station, winning the 800m race with a mark of 2:10.12. Jackie Martin also made the podium for Utah, placing third in the 400m with a time of 55.84. Lauren O'Banion was just shy of the top-three with Martin in the 400m, finishing with a mark of 56.53.
Meanwhile, three other Utes recorded new personal records at the Aggie Invitational. Maya LeBar bested her previous 60m time, sprinting past the finish line with a time of 7.84 while Jasie York crushed her 800m PR time by nearly three seconds with a mark of 2:15.62. Ruby Jane Mathewson had a great day as well , setting PRs in both the 200m (26.08) and 400m (58.94).
