Track & Field Open 2014 Outdoor Season

3/25/2014 3:11:41 p.m. - Hobbs, NM. After a successful Indoor Track and Field Season the T-Birds opened the Outdoor portion at the UTEP Springtime Invitational in El Paso, TX.

“Sometimes after indoor it is hard for young athletes to get back “up” for the outdoor season” commented Head Coach, Keith Blackwill. “We had a little of that with the young team that we have, but I am very pleased with the national qualifiers and the school records that we set at this opening meet.”

The team hit six new national qualifying marks and Gleneve Grange set two school records (Shot Put and Discus).

Up next for the T-Birds Track team will be the Texas Relays and the Texas State- Bobcat Invitational. “We will take a few athletes to each meet” commented Blackwill.  The Texas Relays is a qualifying meet that features the top athletes from across the country, despite the level. “We will compete right against the top NCAA D1 schools in the country at the Texas relays” said Blackwill. “We look to have a busy, but successful next week.
