The UConn men’s track and field team returns to action this Saturday at Boston University’s Terrier Classic.
Coming off of a dominating performance last week at the Great Dane Classic, Head Coach Gregory S. Roy and Co. are chomping at the bit to keep this roll going.
“While the Terrier Classic this weekend is not a scoring meet, we’ll face top notch competition in all of our events,” Roy said.
In addition to the Huskies capturing three first place titles in the 800 meter run, 60 meter hurdles and distance medley relay, junior pole vaulter Cory Duggan (Staten Island, N.Y.) was also named the Big East Field Athlete of the Week for his performance at the Great Dane Classic.
Duggan, a first time winner of the accolade, matched his personal best with a leap of 4.95 meters, placing him in 3rd for the meet. The jump is this year’s 4th highest in the Big East.
UConn will look to continue their overall success, as they have been showing strength in long and short distance running, as well as in the field events.
The Terrier Classic is scheduled to being at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday.
