Track and Field Competes in Marietta Alumni Open

Monday, February 10, 2014

MARIETTA, Ohio -- The Alderson Broaddus track and field teams competed in the Marietta Alumni Open Saturday afternoon and broke three school records, notched 10 top-eight finishes and recorded 20 season-best performances.

"The team was very excited about this weekend's meet," said Head Coach Jesse Weiner. "Coming off of a bye week they were rested and ready to go. We made a ton of improvements and it showed tremendously this weekend with all of the season bests that we posted. We have a bye week next weekend and then we are back to Marietta to finish out the indoor season strong."

ABU will split its squad for its return to Marietta College on February 21. Weiner said it will be the team's "Blue vs. Gold Battle" and he expects fierce competition between the groups.
