Track and Field Travels To Mississippi State for Bulldog Invitational
March 31, 2006
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Already having two solid outdoor meets under their belts, the Memphis track and field teams will travel to Starkville, Miss., Saturday for the Bulldog Invitational, hosted by Mississippi State University.
In just two meets thus far in the outdoor campaign, the U of M is just one short of its total number of regional qualifiers from 2005, while five Lady Tigers have broken school records.
Sivan Aballi (shot put and discus), Susan King (discus) and Gail Lee (shot put) have all qualified on for the Lady Tigers, while J.D. Erickson (shot put, discus and hammer) and Norbert Gulyas (discus) have qualified for the Tigers.
With better weather expected this weekend, along with likely the best competition to this point in the spring, Memphis expects even better results and more stellar performances.
Along with Memphis and Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Louisiana Tech, Alcorn State, Alabama-Huntsville and Missouri State are scheduled to compete.
Competition at the Bulldog Invitational is set to begin at 9 a.m. with field events, while running events are slated to follow at noon.
Live results for the meet can be followed at MSU's website, www.mstateathletics.com, while results and a recap will be posted at gotigersgo.com.
