Scarlet & Gray On Tap
Nov. 30, 2009
LAS VEGAS - UNLV track and field will hold the Scarlet & Gray Intrasquad meet this Friday at Myron Partridge Stadium and Sheila Tarr-Smith Field, with the Rebels competing in seven track events and two field events.
The meet is slated to get underway at 11:00 a.m. (PT) with the 300 meters and the first field event will be the hammer throw at 11:15 a.m.
"The intrasquad meet is a great opportunity for the team to see where they are before they leave for the break," UNLV head coach Yvonne Scott said. "The indoor season is just around the corner, so this is a good way to start getting the competitive juices flowing and get their minds ready for the season. It will be a fun day of competition but it will also allow them to see just how hard they will have to work during the holidays to be prepared when January rolls around."
This will be the third season for the Rebels under Scott, and this Friday's meet is one of the final team activities before the winter break. UNLV will compete in up to four regular-season indoor meets and the MWC Indoor Championships and is then slated to run in up to nine outdoor meets followed by the MWC Outdoor Championships.
The Rebels open their indoor season at the Lumberjack Invitational in Flagstaff, Ariz., on Jan. 16 and the league championships are being hosted by New Mexico and begin on Feb. 26 and the NCAA Indoor Championships are March 12-13 at Fayetteville, Ark. UNLV kicks off its outdoor season with the UNLV Track Classic on March 6, the only home meet of the season for the Rebels, and the 2010 MWC Outdoor Championships are being hosted by New Mexico as well and will be held May 12-15 in Albuquerque, N.M.
