KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (May 1, 2015) – After the men’s and women’s teams each earned third-place finishes at the 2015 Southern Conference Outdoor Championships last weekend, the ETSU track & field program will be back in action Saturday at the University of Tennessee Challenge at Tom Black Track at LaPorte Stadium.

Track competition will start with the women’s 4x100-meter relay at 12:30 p.m. and will progress into the late afternoon before action at the Challenge wraps up with the men’s 4x400-meter relay at 4:45.

Following strong showings at the SoCon Championships, a number of ETSU track & field student-athletes are still looking to gain and/or solidify qualifying marks for the upcoming NCAA Division I Regional Championships at the end of the month. Among this group is senior hurdler Dede Edgecombe (Spartanburg, S.C.) in the women’s 100-meter hurdles, sophomore hurdler Mike Williams (Mt. Laurel, N.J.) in the men’s 400-meter hurdles, and jumpers junior Ashley Kessler (Knoxville, Tenn.) and sophomore Brett Squibbs (Rock Hill, S.C.) in the respective women’s and men’s pole vault. The Bucs are hopeful that they can secure additional NCAA Regional qualifying scores over the next few weeks.
