TCU to compete at Tyson Invitational
Feb. 8, 2007
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - After having limited practice time for the last month due to the cold temperatures in Fort Worth, the TCU track and field team will return to the track on Friday and Saturday at the Tyson Invitational.
The meet is being tape-delayed by ESPN2 and will begin at 8 p.m. at the Randal Tyson Track Center. The meet will mark TCU's final meet until the Mountain West Indoor Championships from Feb. 23-24.
"More than anything this meet provides us with a chance to get on the road and get back to competing," head coach Darryl Anderson said. "This is our last tune-up before conference season and it will be the best competition we have faced yet. The weather has set us back a little bit, but I'm sure we aren't the only school that is dealing with the weather."
Fans looking to watch the Flyin' Frogs in action at the Tyson Invitational can tune into ESPN2 at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 11. In addition to TCU competing, over 38 collegiate teams will be joined by some of the top track and field athletes in the world.
In the previous two meets, TCU has sent a limited number of athletes due to the lack of practice time because of inclement weather. However, a large contingent of both men and women will be at the Tyson Invitational, which should provide a good look at the team for the first time this season.
"I feel like we'll have a pretty good meet and it will be a great test for our team," Anderson said. "It is going to be fun to watch."
