UTC Runners Travel To Bulldog Open At Samford

Friday, February 14, 2020

The Chattanooga women’s track team will head to Birmingham for the Samford Bulldog Open 2020 at the CrossPlex.

“This is our final tune-up before the indoor Southern Conference meet,” Chattanooga head coach Andy Meyer said. “We will be working on our race focus and preparation for conference at this meet.

“We will be racing for good times so we get in the fast heats at indoor conference races. We will be racing to fine tune our speed and endurance. We will be focusing on improving specific pacing for some of the distances.”

Lesley Green, Sophia Neglia and Emily Poole will get Saturday morning’s running events started with the 5000 meter at 10:00 a.m. This will be Green’s first collegiate try at the longer distance.

Madelyn Thompson will compete in the Long Jump at the start of the day then immediately move to the 60 meter Hurdles. The 60 meter Dash prelims will follow with Thompson, Sage Davis and McKenzie Williamson. The semifinals of both events will follow immediately.

Veteran runners Ashlynd Broling, Nicole Buehrle and Hannah Caldwell will compete in the Mile for the women. Katie Coker and Sydney Cansler will represent Chattanooga in the 400 meter Dash. Following that race will be Makenzie Jones, Mattie Parker and Emily Poole in the 3000 meter.

Broling, Buehrle and Abby Bateman will run the 800 meter event and that will be followed by the 60 meter Dash and Hurdle finals. The meet will wrap up with the 4x400 meter relay.

Ryan Phillips, Jonathan Boyd and transfer Jasper Wilson are slated to run in the men’s 3000 meter run.

“This is an important meet with much to get accomplished,” Meyer said. “Also, several of the guys will be making their indoor debut in the 3000 at this meet and we are looking for good races from them as well.

“We want all our kids to compete hard and compete smart here so the momentum carries over to the indoor championships.”

Live scoring will be available online at GoMocs.com. Complete results will be posted online as soon as they are available.
