BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Shorter University track and field team will travel to Indiana University for the two-day Gladstein Invitational being held at the Harry Gladstein Fieldhouse this Friday and Saturday on the IU campus.
The Hawks and Lady Hawks are looking ahead to their third meet of the 2012 indoor season, but the Gladstein Invitational represents an early challenge for Shorter and provides the opportunity to put big, national-level marks on the board.
The meet annually produces some of the top early-season times in the world, and this year should be no different. Invitational races will be highlighted on Friday and Saturday of the meet, with the men's 3,000-meter invitational taking the spotlight.
Combined events (pentathlon and heptathlon) action starts at Noon ET on Friday, and regular competition is set for a 3:30 pm start. Live results will be available here.
