JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Jan. 12, 2008) - The ETSU men's and women's track and field team concluded competition at the Virginia Tech Invitational Saturday afternoon from Rector Field House in Blacksburg.
Battling stiff competition in their first meet of the 2008 season, a few members of the ETSU track and field squad were still able to garner personal bests at the meet. The field which included Tennessee and six ACC schools in Clemson, Duke, Maryland, Virginia, host Virginia Tech and Wake Forest gave the Bucs an early season test.
"Our team went up against some stiff competition this weekend, but it was nice to see some of our athletes come away with personal bests in their respective events," said associate head track and field coach Michele Byrne. "It is early in the season and our squad needs to be able to build off each of these meets."
