Tigers travel to SEMO for Gatorade Classic
April 4, 2003
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO. -- The University of Memphis Men's and Women's track teams will compete in the 22nd annual Gatorade Classic on Friday and Saturday at Southeast Missouri State University's Abe Stuber Track & Field Complex.
There will be eight schools with both men's and women's teams in the competition including Memphis, Murray State, Southeast Missouri, SMS, Southern Illinois-Edwardsville, Southern Indiana, Tennessee-Chattanooga and Tennessee-Martin. Austin Peay will enter only a Women's team and Tennessee State will enter only a Men's team. Rend Lake College, second at the NJCAA national indoor championships, will have entries, but will not be included in the team scoring.
This will be the first meet of the outdoor season that features team scoring. It's a great opportunity for the Memphis Tigers, who have dominated their first two meets at Arkansas-Little Rock and the Big Cat Classic last weekend, to challenge and perhaps win a Men's team meet title.
