The outdoor season continues for the Utah track & field team, but this week will be somewhat of a rare occurrence with it being a dual meet against San Diego State. The Utes will be sending 19 student-athletes to the dual meet competing in every event but the pole vault, high jump and discus.
Of the 19, Sara Leonard and Astrid Lindgren will be making their season debuts on the track from the distance crew while Regan Crofts will get her first action of the season competing in the javelin. In addition, the Utes will also be racing in the 4x100m for the first time this season along with the 100m hurdles.

Junior Brooklyn James will once again pull double duty this week. This time she'll be competing with the track & field team first on Thursday, Feb. 25, before taking a flight right after to join the soccer team that night before the Pac-12 opener against Washington State on Friday, Feb. 26, and Sunday, Feb. 28. The Clackamas, Ore., product will be competing in the 800m and 4x400m relay in the dual meet at San Diego State.

After nearly two years without competition, the track & field team finally got a chance to compete in the outdoor season on Feb. 13 at the UNLV Winter Challenge #1. That long layoff due to the 2020 season cancelled because of COVID-19 saw the Utes post a great showing with Whitney Hessler and Ruby Jane Mathewson winning the 1500m and 400m hurdles, respectively.
Brooke Manson and Annie Murdock finished in second and third for Utah in the 400m, with Manson clocking in at 57.48 while Murdock came in right behind her at 57.64. Freshman Bailey Kealamakia also took the podium for Utah in the 400m Hurdles, claiming third with a time of 1:04.21 in her first career 400m hurdles race. In addition, Utah also grabbed top-10 finishes in the 800m and 200m races.
The track & field team will head back to Las Vegas for a second meet hosted by UNLV on Saturday, March 6, while the distance crew from cross country head up to the Pacific Northwest for the Pac-12 Cross Country Championships hosted at Chambers Bay Golf Course on Friday, March 5. The Utes had their best showing at the Pac-12 Championships last season, placing third thanks to Poppy Tanks, Bella Williams and Sarah Feeny finishing in the top-10.
