Home Again This Weekend

March 14, 2013

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The Rebel track & field program will host its UNLV Invitational this Friday and Saturday at Myron Partridge Stadium and Sheila Tarr-Smith Field. The two-day meet is the second of four that the squad will host this spring after opening the 2013 outdoor season with the UNLV Classic on March 15-16. The Scarlet & Gray will also welcome participants to the UNLV Randall Cunningham Invitational & Sheila Tarr-Smith Multis on April 12-13 and the Mountain West Outdoor Championships on May 9-10.

This weekend's meet will begin on Friday with the women's and men's hammer throw - the only event contested on day one - at 3:00 pm.

Saturday's action kicks off at 9:30 am for both the field and track events. The women's shot put and men's discus begin the action on the field while the women's 5K starts the track side of things. The field is scheduled to run until the men's and women's javelin commences at 12:30 pm. The track, on the other hand, has the women's 4x400m relay slated as its final event at 1:35 pm.

Joining the Rebel women at the meet will be the participants from Minnesota (women), Missouri Southern State (men), Westminster (both men and women), and some local running clubs.
