WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University track & field team will travel to Coral Gables, Fla., for the Hurricane Alumni Invitational, competing on the Saturday edition of the two-day meet. The Hoyas amended the previous schedule of splitting sites and also competing at the George Mason Spring Invitational in Fairfax, Va., due to a freeze watch in the DC metropolitan area.
A portion of the meet from 3 p.m. - 6 p.m., will be streamed live on ESPN3 with Joe Zagacki and Olympic gold medalist Lauryn Williams on the call. The event will also be archived and available to watch after the event has concluded.
Delta Timing will handle the live results and will be available here.
The Last Time
This will be the second week of competition for the Hoyas with some student-athletes making their outdoor debut. The Blue & Gray opened the outdoor season last weekend with a small contingent traveling to Palo Alto, Calif., for the Stanford Invitational while another group traveled to the Colonial Relays in Williamsburg, Va.
Hoyas Make Their Debut
Some Hoyas making their debut this weekend will be All-American Heather Martin (Manlius, N.Y./Fayetteville-Manlius), fresh off her NCAA title win, running the 800-meter leg of the championship women’s distance medley relay. Martin will compete in the 1,500-meter run, scheduled for 3:20 p.m.
The women’s 800-meter run, slated for 5:05 p.m., will feature a trio of Hoyas who will be running on an outdoor track for the first time this season in All-American Andrea Keklak (Sudbury, Mass./Lincoln-Sudbury/Princeton), All-American Piper Donaghu (Portland, Ore./Grant) and BIG EAST Champion Kennedy Weisner (St. Mary’s, Pa./Elk County Catholic).
Hoyas Setting PRs
The men’s 800-meter run will also feature a number of GU runners with All-American Joe White (Clifton, N.J./DePaul Catholic) ready to take on his first outdoor 800m of the season after running a four-second personal record (PR) in the 1,500-meter run last weekend in Williamsburg.
Jody-Ann Knight (Bentonville, Ark./Bentonville) will look to continue her work in the sprints as she opened the season with a PR in the 400-meter dash, breaking one minute (59.14) for the first time in her Hoya career. She will compete in the women’s 200-meter dash, scheduled for 6:25 p.m.
