EIU Hosts Illinois Intercollegiate on Saturday

CHARLESTON, Ill. – Eastern Illinois men’s and women’s indoor track will compete at home for the third time this season as the Panthers play host to the Illinois Intercollegiate on Saturday at the Lantz Indoor Fieldhouse.

The meet will consist of teams from Eastern Illinois, McKendree, Northern Illinois and SIU Edwardsville. The event will be a traditional and dual scoring meet.

Events start at 11 a.m. with the long jump and weight throw for field events and the women’s 5K run also at 11 a.m. The final scheduled event of the day is the 4x400 relay at 4:40 p.m.

EIU is coming off a strong opening meet for the spring season as they placed first in six women’s events and four men’s events at last week’s EIU Mega Meet.

Top performances were put in by Chandra Golden and Kandace Arnold on the women’s side while Joe Noonan and Zye Boey were top performers on the men’s side. All four athletes were recognized by the Ohio Valley Conference as their athletes of the week.
