After coming off a record-setting meet at the Husky Invitational in Boston, the USF indoor track team plans to keep the momentum going. Saturday, the team travels to Chapel Hill for the University of North Carolina Invitational.
“Hopefully we will continue the roll we’ve been on,” USF coach Greg Thiel said.
The Bulls beat the host team, the University of Connecticut, by a record 110.33 to 102, while picking up two school records. Chandra Brewer threw the shot 50’8″ and Betsy Matson pole vaulted 12′. The athletes are feeling good after placing first in Boston and are now focused on their match this weekend.
“Hopefully, they are ready to run,” said Thiel. “And I think they are.”
The Bulls are looking forward to the fight that the Tar Heels will give them and Thiel believes that this weekend will be a higher level for USF. This weekend’s match will be a first for mile runner Bente General.
General will be running the 800 meter for the first time, an event that Thiel is excited to witness.
Other players who will be looked at in the upcoming meet are Amber Delpino and Karoline Hagen. Both are expected to have solid meets after coming in third and second respectively in the 400.
