The University of Wyoming track and field teams will look to continue their impressive seasons beginning Thursday at the Mountain West Outdoor Championships in Clovis, California.

The meet begins Wednesday, but UW athletes won't compete until Thursday.

Cowgirls senior Jerayah Davis leads the MW in both the 100-meter dash (11.18 seconds) and the long jump (21 feet, 2.5 inches) and is part of the 4x100 relay team -- along with Ja'la Henderson, Jordan Edmonds and Shayla Howell -- that has the No. 2 mark in the conference.

Henderson is also expected to score big points for the Cowgirls as she has the top mark in the triple jump (42-09). Emelda Malm-Annan is No. 2 in the hammer throw.

For the Cowboys, Harry Ewing is the man to beat in the steeplechase (8:42.72) and Kirk Unland is atop the hammer throw (199-05).

Distance runners Paul Roberts and Christopher Henry; lateral jumpers William Nolan, Reece Shannon and Alec Richardson; and hammer throwers Eric McArthur and Hap Frketich are also in line to garner points for the Cowboys.
