Colorado Hosts Potts Invitational

Jan 12, 2022

BOULDER – Colorado track and field returns to the Indoor Practice Facility for home indoor competition for the first time since February of 2020 this weekend with the 2022 Potts Invitational.
 
All field events will compete on Friday beginning at noon, while all track events will be on Saturday starting at 11 a.m.
 
Colorado will have 49 total student-athletes competing in 25 of 28 events. The only events CU won't be represented in are the men's 3,000-meter run, women's pole vault and women's triple jump.
 
The men's mile will be the marque running event with five total CU men racing. On the women's side, the most competed event is the women's weight throw with seven women entered. There will also be five women competing in the mile, 3,000 and 60 hurdles.
 
The Buffs competed in three meets in December, highlighted by Avery McMullen who sits second in the NCAA in the women's pentathlon. She is also ranked 11th in the high jump and 13th in the long jump and is the lone Buff early in the season in the top-16 in the NCAA. McMullen will be competing in the hurdles, high jump and 800-meter run.
 
For many this is not only the first meet of the season, but also the first time on a track for Colorado. There are 11 student-athletes making their debut for Colorado in a track event and eight more that are running indoors for the first time after the complicated 2021 indoor track and cross country schedule.
 
Friday's events are free to the public, while Saturday's event is $8 for everyone 12 or older. All events can be followed live at cubuffs.com/tracklive.
