EDWARDSVILLE, Ill – The SIUE track and field teams travel across town to compete in the Billiken Invitational Friday and Saturday.
There will be top talent from local universities around the St. Louis area competing at the meet, including SLU and Ohio Valley Conference opponent Southeast Missouri.
The meet will get underway Friday at 3 p.m. with the women's hammer throw. The track events will begin at 5:30 p.m. Friday.
"We are looking forward to the meet this weekend," SIUE Head Coach Scott Block said. "Competing so close to home is a big advantage and I think we will continue the success from last weekend."
SIUE's Nichyria Byrd will look to have another big meet after breaking the women's long jump school record (19 feet, 11.25 inches) last week at the Joey Haines Invitational.
