With numerous highly seeded runners, the Buccaneers bring a talented squad to the championships in their third year with Director of Track & Field/Cross Country Jim Stintzi and Head Coach Soyini Thompson at the helm.
The Bucs were picked third overall in the conference's preseason poll as voted on by the conference's head coaches. CSU was picked to finish behind Hampton, and High Point in the rankings.
CSU returns to a familiar venue for the conference championship. Charleston Southern was at the Eagle Twilight Invitational on May 1 for the one-day event.
Winthrop's Irwin Belk Track opened in 2005 as part of the school's track and soccer complex. The Mondo rubberized track surrounds a large field area for all the jump and throw events. The track plays host to the Big South Championship for the third time in its existence.
