ZAGS CONTINUE OUTDOOR SEASON:
- The Gonzaga women’s and men’s track programs continue their outdoor season with the second meet of the slate at the University of Idaho Invitational Saturday.
- This is the second straight year the Zags appear in the meet, but only the second appearance at an outdoor meet in Idaho since 2010.
ABOUT THE MEET:
- A predominant Gonzaga and Idaho field will give the Zags a chance to use the University of Idaho Invitational as a tune-up for our top end runners competing next week at Stanford and UCLA.
- GU will use the racing to get more competitive and to learn more about racing.
- Director of Gonzaga Track Pat Tyson says, “So it is not so much about getting personal bests as simply competing! We want the big time marks to be performed in the big time competitions in April and May.”
LAST YEAR AT THE MEET:
- The Gonzaga women’s and men’s track programs raced against tough competition and heavy winds at last year’s Invitational.
- In the men’s 5,000 meters, Troy Fraley led a Bulldog sweep of the top four spots. He crossed the line at 15:29.79. Max Kaderabek finished second at 15:53.79.

- Alison Fraher won her heat of the 1,500 meters. She led the race for its entirety and held off an Idaho runner during the final 500 meters for the exciting win.
