JONESBORO, Ark. (1/22/13) – The Arkansas State University men’s and women’s indoor track and field teams will host their annual ASU Invitational this Friday (Jan. 25) at the ASU Convocation Center in Jonesboro, Ark.

Action at the ASU Invitational commences at 10 a.m. (CT) with field events for both the men and women.  The weight throw and shot put will serve as the meet’s initial two events.

The running events are slated for an 11 a.m. (CT) start with preliminaries in the 55-meter dash and the 55-meter hurdles.  The finals will get underway around 1:30 p.m. (CT).  

The Red Wolves, under second-year head coach Jim Patchell, will compete in the meet as a full team for the second time this indoor season as ASU’s sprinters and distance runners didn’t participate in this past Saturday’s (Jan. 19) Eastern Illinois John Craft Invitational.

“We’re excited about getting started this semester with the indoor season at home this Friday,” said Patchell.  “The team has had a good break and we’re looking forward to competing again.  We have several quality teams entered and it should be a great competition.”      

Approximately 17 schools are scheduled to compete in the this year's ASU Invitational including Ole Miss, Troy, Louisiana-Lafayette, South Alabama, McNeese State, Southeast Louisiana, Central Arkansas, and UALR among others.

Admission to the 2013 ASU Invitational is $4 for adults and $2 for kids.  ASU students with a valid ID will be admitted free of charge.
