EMORY, Va. - The Emory & Henry College Men's & Women's Track & Field Teams will conclude the 2018-19 indoor season on Sunday when they compete in the 2019 Old Dominion Athletic Conference Championships. It will be the first-ever postseason appearance for the E&H women, while the men will see their first ODAC action since 1994.
Roanoke College's Cregger Center will serve as the meet host for the third year in a row. The Wasps are no stranger to the three-year old facility, as they competed in both the Bast-Cregger Invitational (Nov. 30-Dec. 1) and the Finn Pincus Invitational (Jan. 26) earlier in the year.
Competition in the 16-event meet kicks off at noon with field events. The first track events are set to begin at 2:00 p.m.
Leading Emory & Henry's charge this year is its stable of throwers with three men and one woman seeded eighth or better in the shot put. Freshman Edward Rajner (Bainbridge, N.Y.) has the best mark in the shot put (14.42m) and is also seeded eighth in the weight throw (13.46m). On the women's side freshman Autumn Huffman (New Castle, Va.) is seeded fifth at 10.77 meters.
In the running events, the women's distance medley relay has the second-best time in the field at 14:26.46 while the men's DMR is seeded fourth (12:20.64). The women's 4x400 meter relay has the eight seed at 5:07.48.
