A skeleton crew of Utes heads to Ogden this weekend for the Wildcat Tuneup. Joining them will be BYU, USU, UVSC and Weber State.

“The Wildcat Tuneup is just that, a tuneup meet for the conference championships next weekend,” Ute head coach Kyle Kepler said. “We will only send a select few athletes who need an extra competition to continue to improve or work out various technical issues in their events. The remainder of the team will rest this weekend as part of their preparations for the MWC meet.”
