“We’re expecting to have a good showing,” head coach Chris Woods said. “I want the student-athletes to execute the things they’ve been working on in the offseason. We’ve had a very extensive winter break. I’m really excited to see what we’re able to do in our first competition.”
Friday’s meet marks the beginning of four meets across three weekends for the Maroon and White, spanning from Birmingham to Fayetteville, Arkansas, to wrap up the opening month of action.
The Blazer Invite is set to begin at 10 a.m CT with the men’s shot put with Jabari Bennett representing the Bulldogs. The meet is scheduled to conclude with the 4×400 meter relay which is set for a 5:30 p.m. start.
