STARKVILLE, Miss. – Following a dominating performance at the Tyson Invitational, a select group of the Mississippi State men’s track and field team will venture to South Bend, Ind., for the Alex Wilson Invitational on Feb. 22.
The event, hosted by the Fighting Irish, will take place at the Loftus Sports Center and serves as the last opportunity for the Bulldogs to qualify for the 2014 NCAA Indoor Championships, which are slated for March 12-15 in Albuquerque, N.M.
"Our vision of consistently improving has not changed, and for that to happen, we have to be out there competing" MSU coach Steve Dudley said. "The more we compete, the better we can become.”
Nearly 50 schools from around the nation are set to compete at the meet. Fellow Southeastern Conference teams No. 1 Arkansas and No. 22 Georgia will join MSU.
Dudley’s men will participate in the distance medley relay, 4x400-meter relay, long jump and triple jump.
Action is scheduled to begin on Saturday at 11 a.m. Fans can track live results by visiting UND.com or by following the Bulldogs on Twitter (@HailStateTF).
The MSU women will sit out this weekend in preparation for the SEC Indoor Championships on Feb. 27-March 1 in College Station.
