A full meet schedule can be viewed here. Live results will be available here. 

Other teams participating in the one-day meet include Rocky Mountain College, Montana Tech, Carroll College, Montana Western, and Providence College. 

The meet will be the first of back-to-back home competitions for the Bobcats at Worthington Arena, with the Big Sky Tuner set for the following Friday, February 16, inside Brick Breeden Fieldhouse. 

The Big Sky Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships get underway on Thursday, February 22 from The Podium in Spokane, Washington. 

Montana State is coming off the Riverfront Invitational & Multis last weekend in Spokane, with the sprints group continuing what has been a stellar season on the track. 

Australian freshman Jett Grundy moved up to No. 2 all-time in MSU history in two events, running a 47.01 in the men’s 400 meters and 21.51 in the men’s 200 meters. Both times are currently the fastest in the Big Sky this year. 

Sophomore Jaeden Wolff improved on her 200 meter time, running a 24.00 flat to cement her spot as the second-fastest woman in school history in that event. The Billings native set the school record in the 60 meters at Worthington Arena back on January 26 at the Bobcat Challenge. 

On the season, the Bobcat women have set two school records in the 60 meters and 4×400 meter relay, and have collected 13 top-ten marks overall. The Bobcat men have set two school records in the 60 meters and 5,000 meters and have also collected 13 marks that rank inside the top-ten in program history. 

Notably, the majority of Montana State’s distance group will be competing this weekend in the Husky Classic in Seattle, Washington, as they strive for qualifying marks and prepare for the conference championships—which will also be run near sea level in the Evergreen State in two weeks. 

Big Sky record-holder in the pole vault, Colby Wilson, will be competing solo at the Don Kirby Invitational, hosted by the University of New Mexico in Albequerque.
