Jackson Wood, Jace Marx, Kevin Blackett and Bryce Ailshie, who comprised the Cowboys' 4x400 relay team broke a 17-year old Wyoming record and won the bronze with a time of 3 minutes, 13.46 seconds. That team, as well as Carter, Bryce Ailshie and Jordan Charles were named to the all-conference indoor track team.

Jerayah Davis and Ja'la Henderson were named to the all-conference indoor track team.

The Cowboys finished fifth in the conference while the Cowgirls took 10th.
