For the pros, this weekend represents the end of the 2017 indoor track & field season (the collegians wrap up a week later at NCAA Indoors). With no World Indoor Championships to qualify for, the fields aren’t as loaded as 2016, but there will be plenty of star power in Albuquerque: Cas Loxsom, Donavan Brazier, Clayton Murphy, Robby Andrews, Ben Blankenship, Evan Jager, Paul Chelimo, Ajee Wilson, Charlene Lipsey, Shelby Houlihan, Colleen Quigley are among the big names taking part.
