Track and Field Report: 9 Dawgs getting ready for Indoor Championships

The NCAA National Indoor Track and Field Championships will be held this upcoming weekend (March 9-10) in Nampa, Idaho just outside of Boise (yes, that Boise). This past weekend, at the Virginia Tech Last Chance Meet in Blacksburg (kinda' reminds me of a package store on 441 at the Clarke/Oconee County Line in about 1979...), Senior triple-jumper Colleen Felix improved enough to earn a #14 national ranking, earning her a spot in the Championships. Meanwhile, two other Georgia women will accompany Felix to Idaho: Junior high-jumper Saniel Atkinson and freshman pole-vaulter Morgan Leleux.

The Georgia men's side will be well represented in Boise, sending 6 Dawgs to the event:

  • Torrin Lawrence, 4x400 relay, 400 meter dash
  • Aaron Evans, 800 meter run
  • Philip Adams, Waymon Storey and Chris Foster, 4x400 relay
  • Cory Holman, heptathlon

Torrin Lawrence. He runs real fast.

Torrin Lawrence, a senior from Jacksonville, is a two-time SEC 400 meter dash champion and is the national leader in this event. He is also the anchor of the 4x400 relay team. Lawrence has posted a national best time in the 400 meter dash of 46.01 seconds. His main competition will come from Mississippi State's Tavaris Tate (46.10) and Florida's Tony McQuay (46.11). Ess Eee See Speed, baby!

ESPN3 will carry Day 1 events (Friday, 7:30 P.M.) and Day 2 (Saturday, 8:00 P.M.) Live and in Living DSL. For all preliminary events, check out ncaa.com.
