WASHINGTON - For the third-straight year, the Georgetown University track & field program will host the Hoya Spiked Shoe Invitational this Friday, January 18 at the Hanley Center for Athletic Excellence on the campus of Georgetown Preparatory School in Bethesda, Md. The Hoyas welcome the La Salle Explorers, Delaware State Hornets, and Temple Owls for the third annual event. The meet is scheduled for 11 a.m. with the first running event occurring at 11:30 a.m., tentatively.
This will be the second time in the new year that both the men's and women's team have competed.

The first events are slated for 11 a.m. with the long jump and shot put. The triple jump and high jump will begin after the long jump.
