AUBURN, Ala. After earning three of the nation’s highest marks in the high jump, heptathlon and men’s medley relay at the Vanderbilt Invite last weekend, the Auburn track and field team is looking to continue its strong performance this weekend at the Texas Tech Open & Multis meeting.

The action kicks off Thursday at 12pm CT with the men’s 60M sprint in the heptathlon, Friday at 3pm with the women’s weight throw and men’s pole vault, and Saturday at 10am with the women’s shot put.

“This is the week we’re focusing on getting really solid nationally with the men’s and women’s sprints,” says Tigers head coach Leroy Burrell said. “We got off to a really good start and I’m happy with what our athletes have been doing over the past few weeks.”
