UTC Track Travels To Tri Star Classic At ETSU

Thursday, April 26, 2018

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s outdoor track and field team will close out the regular season this weekend at the Tri Star Classic hosted by ETSU in Johnson City, Tenn.

“Just as last week was the final tune up for our distance and mid-distance girls, this meet is the final tune up for our field events and sprint girls,” Chattanooga head coach Andy Meyer said.

Taylor Grayson will throw the shot put on Friday and be in the hammer throw Saturday morning. Rebekah Hampton and Rebekah Bryant will both compete in the long jump Friday and the triple jump Saturday. Hampton will run the 100m hurdles Saturday afternoon and Bryant will close out competition in the 100 meter Dash.

“They will be focusing on run way approaches, footwork and form in each specific event,” Meyer said. “They get to check their current progress against several SoCon competitors.  This will give them a bit of confidence going into the final prep phase before the conference meet.”

The Southern Conference Championships will be hosted by Western Carolina May 10-11 in Cullowhee, N.C.

This is the Bucs first time hosting an outdoor track and field event the 2007 Atlantic Sun Conference Championships. Other teams competing this weekend will be SoCon foes Western Carolina and Wofford along with Anders (S.C.), Carson-Newman, Georgia State, Jacksonville State, Lenoir-Rhyne and USC Upstate. Results are available online at GoMocs.com on the events and track and field schedule pages.
