Track to Compete at UC Irvine Invitational

March 18, 2010

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - This Saturday the LMU Track team will travel to UC Irvine for the annual Spring Break Collegiate Invitational this Saturday, March 20, at Anteater Stadium. Field events begin at 10:00 a.m. with the first track event scheduled for 1:00 p.m.

Last year's UC Irvine invitational drew a variety of teams from the east coast who came out to California on their spring breaks to compete including Cornell, Yale, Arkansas, and Michigan. Thus Lions will be up against some strong competition again this year and are hoping to rise to the challenge and record some fast times.

Head Coach Scott Guerrero said, "This meet is basically a "last chance qualifier" for the Cal-Nevada meet next weekend as it represents the last opportunity to get a mark good enough to qualify. This will also be our first meet under good conditions as so far every other meet we've been either rained out or rained on. I think we'll get some good performances just by virtue of the fact that we'll have good weather."

In the distance events, many of the Lions will be competing in the 1500m or 800m races for the first time this season. In addition we shall see LMU sprinters in the 100m, 200m, 400m sprints as well as the triple, long and high jumps.
