MISSOULA – It may be hard to believe but the NCAA outdoor track and field season started Friday for the Montana Grizzlies. The Griz hosted the Al Manuel Northwest Invite.

Coming into 2019, the Griz women are looking to make some waves on the track.

Over the past few years, the women’s team has battled through injuries and had to redshirt some athletes. But in 2019, the Griz are at full strength and are expecting to compete with the best.

Junior Darby Henthorn says the support of the team is great, but they just need to work on building confidence.

“I think one of our strong parts is that we support each other a lot,” Henthron said. “We like to encourage each other. I think we have a pretty strong field for the most part. We have a lot of high jumpers and discus throwers and javelin throwers. I don’t really know what our weak parts are, probably confidence. I think we just really need to have confidence in each other and ourselves so that we can do it this year.”
