Intrasquad meet marks start to track and field season

The Lancer track and field teams are getting a head start on the 2014 campaign with the Blue and Gold intrasquad meet, which started Monday and continues today in the St. Denis Centre.

More than 100 UWindsor athletes will compete in squads dubbed “blue” or “gold.” It’s a friendly, team-building exercise, says associate head coach Brett Lumley.

“Many athletes take a fun approach to the meet, competing in new events as well as their usual specialties,” he says.

Today’s competition will begin at 5 p.m. in the fieldhouse; admission for spectators is free.
