WKU Track & Field is back in action this weekend at the fifth annual Vanderbilt Invitational on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 19-20 inside the Vanderbilt Multipurpose Facility. The Hilltoppers opened the 2017-18 indoor campaign in Nashville, Tenn., back on Dec. 2.
More than 700 student-athletes representing 22 schools are scheduled to compete this weekend. Squads traveling to Music City this weekend include: Alabama, Auburn, Belmont, Connecticut, Furman, Georgia Tech, Kennesaw State, Maryland, Memphis, Middle Tennessee, Mississippi State, Missouri, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, SMU, Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, Southern Miss, Tulane, UAB, Vanderbilt and WKU.
Action is slated to open on Friday with field events commencing at 4 p.m. CT, while running events will kick off at 7 p.m. On Saturday, the meet will begin with unseeded running events at 10 a.m. (prelims and finals starting at 1 p.m.) and field events at 10:30 a.m.
Head coach Erik Jenkins’ team will look to continue improving after securing 22 top-10 finishes at last weekend’s Purdue-hosted Gene Edmonds Open. Highlights included Morgan McIntyre’s third place finish in pole vault with the fourth-best clear in Lady Topper indoor history at 12’6” (3.81m).
