Athletes suit up for national track and field meet
Lancer men are seeking their third straight team title at the U Sports track and field championship meet, which opened Thursday at the University of Alberta. Windsor has won back-to-back national banners on the men’s side; Toronto is defending its women’s team title.
Acting head coach Kevin DiNardo says the Lancers are going into the tournament looking for a podium finish.
“We have had a great season so far, with well over 100 personal bests, and many top-10 all-time performances, along with four school records: in the women’s shot put, men’s weight throw and both pole vault events,” he says. “I am excited to see what individual performances will be pulled out as a result of being at the big show.”
Lancer athletes are competing through Saturday in the national track and field championships in Edmonton.
