STARKVILLE, Miss. – After an impressive showing in the Lone Star State, Mississippi State track and field will make the 80-mile trip east for the Alabama Invite in Tuscaloosa on Saturday.

Squads from Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and Penn State will join the Bulldogs for the one-day meet hosted by the Alabama Crimson Tide. MSU will have 40 athletes competing this weekend at the Sam Bailey Track and Field Stadium, covering a total of 32 different events.

The Bulldogs change up their relay teams on Saturday, testing the foursome of Tavaris Tate, Scottie Hearns, Jarrett Samuels and Randy Patterson in the 4x400-meter relay.  Last weekend in Texas, Tate, Daundre Barnaby and Brandon McBride joined Patterson for the relay, where the Maroon and White raced to a first-place finish, clocking a time of 3:05.35. On the women’s side, freshman Ste’yce McNeil will connect with Brittney Covington, Kanishia Carey and Ocian Archer in the women’s 4x400-meter relay. 

“I’m looking forward to seeing our athletes compete Saturday,” MSU coach Steve Dudley said. “We have a lot of momentum coming off a great weekend at the Texas Relays, and this will be another chance to keep improving.”

Events start at 10:30 a.m., beginning with the men’s hammer throw and are expected to conclude at 8:30 p.m. with the women’s 4x400-meter relay.

Following this weekend’s action, MSU will head to Baton Rouge for the Battle on the Bayou on April 13.
