“This will be a relatively competitive meet that starts a ladder of competitions where each one gets a little bit more competitive,” said Pat Henry head coach. “We had an early December meet where we got to look at some of our personal and now we’ll get to see a few more things this weekend.
“A lot of this is about where we are at right now and each athlete begins to understand where they are in the relationship to the training they have done to this point.
“Sixteen athletes will qualify in each event for the NCAA Indoor Championships. If you look at years past, the first couple meets really dictate about half of that field because the great ones are ready to go.
“Then you have some time for the other ones to come along. This meet is about finding a few new people. We know who the great ones are, let’s see what our young ones are able to do.”
