(Cedar City, UT) - Southern Utah University will host the Sacramento State Hornets in a Western Athletic Conference meet Friday. The Thunderbirds enter the competition coming off one of the biggest upsets in school history with a win over the 2010 NCAA National Champion in UCLA last week.
The team returns to full strength with the return of sophomore and 2010 WAC Freshman of the Year Alyssa Click who will make her season debut. Click is anticipated to appear on three events this weekend.
The Thunderbirds moved up in the most recent rankings after the 194.750 victory over UCLA. SUU moved up to No. 20 from the previous week ranking of No. 23. This week's ranking places the T-Birds where they were entering the season.
