Weekend Preview
The Bucs are coming off a weekend where they split the team between two meets and saw marks that rank among the top ten in the program's history.

Jeryck Wilson and Jaymee Domoney paced each other in the Charlotte Invitational's 1500 meters. Their marks now rank third and fifth respectively. At the same meet, Trevor Dominy's 9:23.29 steeplechase was the eighth fastest in program history.

Meanwhile in the Aggie Invitational, Vincent Johnson finished fifth overall in the 110 meter hurdles in this past weekend's Aggie Invitational with a time of 14.26. The junior finished 0.15 seconds off of his personal best in the event. He also ran less than a second off his PR in the 200 meters, crossing the finish line in 22.63, and competed in the 4x100 meter relay. This performance earned Vincent Johnson Big South Athlete of the Week.

The Facility

Morris Williams Track and Field Stadium is home to a BSS 1000 track surface, constructed in 2015 after the track was removed from Wallace Wade Stadium. A walkway surrounds the track to allow spectators to view any event in the stadium. Additionally, there is bleacher seating for 500 located next to the finish line.
