Women's Track To Co-Host Saturday's Invitational

April 12, 2016

BALTIMORE - The Loyola University Maryland women's track team will welcome more than 20 teams to the Baltimore area on Saturday, as the Greyhounds will co-host the 2016 Loyola-Johns Hopkins Track & Field Invitational at the Loyola-Johns Hopkins Track & Field Complex.

The complex, located between the Evergreen and Homewood campuses, opened in 2009 and has an eight-lane track that surrounds four jump pits, a full-size hammer throw cage and two shot circles. Click here to view directions to the site.

Field events will begin with the hammer throw at 9 a.m., while the events on the track kick off with the 5,000m at 10 a.m.

A fan favorite, the 100m-mascot race will return to the schedule. The Oriole Bird, Poe from the Baltimore Ravens, Iggy the Greyhound, Jay the Blue Jay and many other mascots from participating schools will race at approximately 4 p.m. Prior to the race, teams will be selling 50/50 raffle tickets, with proceeds going to the ticket holder and the mascot's charity of choice.

The meet will include Division I scoring, in addition to overall scoring, to accommodate NCAA requirements.
