Track and Field Teams Start 2018 Campaign at Tiger Indoor Invitational


SEWANEE, Tenn. - The Sewanee track and field teams opened the 2018 season on Saturday as they hosted the Tiger Indoor Meet inside the Fowler Center.

The track and field teams competed in limited action in Saturday's opener, as less than two-thirds of the team was in action. As the season progresses, more will compete in the indoor season and definitely by the time the outdoor season rolls around next month.
