WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – Director of track & field and cross country Alex Heacock announced a nine-event slate for both the men’s and women’s indoor track & field teams on Tuesday. 

 

The Tribe opens the season in Annapolis, Maryland, on Dec. 3, competing in the Navy Invitational. After the New Year, W&M looks to set the 2023-tone at the Brant Tolsma Invitational in Lynchburg, Va., on Jan. 20 and 21. A week later, the Green and Gold are back for another two-day event, heading to the PSU National Open in University Park, Pa. W&M wraps up January close to home at the CNU Invitational in Newport News on Jan. 29. 

 

The February schedule begins on the 3rd with the two-day Doc Hale VT Elite in Blacksburg, Va, followed by the 9th Annual Darius Dixon Memorial Invitational in Lynchburg, Va. the following weekend. Sophomore Emily Ervin was a force at the Dixon Memorial last season, running the seventh-fastest 200m time (24.96) in W&M history and bettering her own freshman record. Ervin’s mark cemented her as the third-fastest woman in Tribe lore.

 

W&M makes a second trip to Annapolis, Md., for the Navy Select on Feb. 17—the final test before championship season. At last year’s event, the Green and Gold dominated the women’s 400m dash with the top three finishes, while, on the men’s side, junior Jackson Cooley took first place in the 60m dash with a career-best time of 7.03.

 

The inaugural Colonial Athletic Association Championship will take place on Feb. 22 and 23 at the Virginia Beach Sports Center in Virginia Beach. W&M competed at the ECAC Championships last season. 

 

Wrapping up the indoor season is the NCAA Championships, which will be held at the Albuquerque Convention Center in Albuquerque, N.M., on March 10 and 11.
