JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (May 10, 2007) - After claiming the 2007 Atlantic Sun Indoor Track and Field Championship, the ETSU men's track and field team will look to make it a clean sweep this weekend as they look to earn its first-ever outdoor title and keep the hardware in Johnson City. The meet begins Friday with the men's decathlon kicking things off at 8 a.m. at the Liberty Bell Track Facility.
On the men's side, ETSU will battle with Gardner-Webb and Belmont for the team title. The women's track and field team will shoot for a top-six finish this weekend and look to get a strong push from its sprinters, throwers and high jumpers.
"There is a good chance for the men to contend for the title, but they are going to have provide their best performances of the season in order to do so," said associate head coach Michelle Byrne. "Hopefully by having the meet on our home turf it will give us a slight advantage, but there are a lot of strong teams and competitors out there, which makes this a solid championship meet."
