Both The Men’s and Women’s Track Teams head to Texas Tech to compete in the Lone Star Conference Indoor Track and Field Titles. Last season the Men took the Indoor title and Women finished second, so this is a shot for the Men to win 3 in a row and 3 of the last 4. If the Women win, it would be their first.

The Meet Starts this Saturday and runs into Sunday. Those who qualify will compete in the NCAA Division II Track and Field Championships at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas.

The outdoor season starts for both squads with the Bobby Lane invitational at Maverick Stadium at UT-Arlington on Saturday, March 24.
