2021 SWAC Outdoor Championships Title Hunters

After missing the chance to compete at last season’s championships, following the cancelation of the meeting because of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Hornets will be aiming to retain their titles this weekend.

On the women’s side, Alabama State goes in search of its 11th consecutive SWAC Outdoor Track and Field title after dominating the field two years ago en route to winning a 10th league crown in succession with 177.5 total points.

The defending champions are expected to be strong again this season, especially in the sprints.

The victory in 2019 handed head coach Ritchie Beene his first men’s Outdoor Track and Field Championship, while the team was winning the SWAC Outdoor Championships for the first time since 2004.

The Hornets took the men’s victory with 176.5 total points after using the pole vault and 5000m competitions to separate themselves from Jackson State, which finished on 169.5 points for second place.

The SWAC indoor championships was won by Alabama State men who were winning their fifth consecutive league indoor team crown. Prairie View took second place with third going to Texas Southern, with Arkansas-Pine Bluff (fourth), and Jackson State rounding out the top 5.
