University of Wyoming Head Track and Field/Cross Country Coach Bryan Berryhill joined Sportsline Live on KOWB (AM 1290) Wednesday night to discuss the upcoming event. They'd love to see more participation, as they try to drive the numbers up, plus there are other ways to get involved. He even reflected on the tragedy and learning more about it since he took over the program. Coach Berryhill has also reached out to the families that were affected by the tragic events back on September 16, 2001.

You can listen to Sportsline Live weeknights from 5 to 6 p.m. on KOWB or online at www.kowb1290.com/listen-live/.
