Talented Jamaican young sprint star Kevona Davis will look to make her mark in the women’s 60m on Saturday when she represents the University of Texas at the Texas A&M hosted Charlie Thomas Invitational in College Station, Texas. Competition on the day begins at 12:00 PM ET with the women’s Long Jump, while the first event on the track is the women’s 3,000m at 3:00 pm ET.

What Will Davis Run This Weekend?

After false-starting in her 60m preliminary race at the Texas Tech Corky Classic meet on Jan. 16, Davis will be hoping for a better return this weekend at the Gilliam Indoor Stadium.

The Charlie Thomas Invitational will host several of the nation’s top athletes from programs such as Houston, LSU, Oklahoma, and Texas, and Texas A&M head coach Pat Henry is looking forward to the competition.

“There will be some outstanding athletes here this weekend. The teams coming in all have good personnel and bring good teams, there is going to be a lot of good competition at this meet,” Henry said.

He added: “We’ve had three competitive meets prior to this. We put a lot of people on the track last week at a really competitive meet at Texas Tech. We come back this weekend and we’re competing a lot of people, but we are also resting a few others.

“We will run some that may enter one event and not two events. We just have to be careful and make sure that we are ready to go come conference time.”
