Final Tune Up For Track & Field
Statesboro, Ga. - Georgia Southern track and field heads down to Gainesville, Fla. to run in the Pepsi Florida Relays Friday and Saturday (April 6-7).The Eagles will see elite level competition once again. The meet will have six ranked teams, including No. 3 Clemson and host No. 11 Florida Gators.
The meet, held at Percy Beard Track, will host boys and girls high school competitors and both Men's and Women's collegiate track teams.
The Relays are the last meet for the Eagles before the SoCon Outdoor Championships, and will be a good test for GSU after being rained out last weekend in the North Florida Invitational. Juniors Ebony Carter (Rome, Ga.) and Jasmine Billings (Lawrenceville, Ga.) will lead the Eagles into the weekend. Carter has the top time in the SoCon in the 100 Meter Dash (11.85) and Billings holds the top spot in the 100 Meter Hurdles (13.83).
Events will begin at 9 a.m. Friday morning, and live results will be available through DeltaTiming.com.
