EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – On the heels of one of the most successful outdoor seasons in program history, the Belmont Track and Field Teams prepare to compete at the 2014 OVC Outdoor Championships, hosted by SIUE, this weekend.
"We're obviously excited for this weekend," said Director of Cross Country and Track & Field Jeff Langdon. We've got some people who are ready to surprise us and some who are going to continue their great season in similar fashion. The next couple of days are going to be tough and it'll take some guts, but I think we're up to the challenge."
One year ago, the men finished sixth while the women finished ninth in their first seasons as members of the Ohio Valley Conference.
On Friday, May 2, field events begin at Noon and track events commence at 3 p.m. On Saturday, field events begin at 11 a.m. and track events start at 2 p.m. Both days also will feature multi events (decathlon and heptathlon) beginning at 9 a.m.
The 2014 OVC Outdoor Championships will be live streamed on the OVC Digital Network. Live stats will also be available.
