Mersal and Pitter are one of three sets of teammates that will compete in the Long Jump at the NCAA Championships joining duos from the University of Florida and Florida State University in the field of 16 in the event. The Cowboys will be the first Pokes at the Indoor Championship since Shayla Howell earned second-team All American Honors in the Long Jump in 2021.

The duo are two of 10 athletes from the Mountain West Conference to qualify for the Championships. They will compete at 2pm (MT) on Friday March 8th.


This will be Mersal's first time competing at the NCAA Indoor Championship Meet after qualifying two-straight years for the Outdoor Championships. Mersal broke the eight-meter mark for the first time in his career earlier this season as he set the Mountain West and Wyoming school record. Mersal went to Albuquerque and the Mountain West Championships and earned an individual title in the event two weekends ago.
