SAN ANTONIO — The UTSA women's track & field team will compete at the Southland Conference Outdoor Championships this weekend in Natchitoches, La. The league's annual three-day event will be contested at Walter P. Ledet Track & Field Complex on the campus of Northwestern State  University.

The meet gets underway at 11 a.m. on Friday with the first four events of the heptathlon (100m hurdles/high jump/shot put/200m), discus  (3:30 p.m.) and 10,000 meters (6:30 p.m.). The final half of the heptathlon (long jump/javelin/800m) then will be contested beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday, while field competition (high jump/shot put/long jump/javelin) will commence three hours later. The running preliminary heats are scheduled to start at 3 p.m. and the 3,000m steeplechase (5:40 p.m.) will wrap up the second day of action. The meet will conclude on Sunday with the triple jump (11 a.m.), hammer (1 p.m.), pole vault (3:30 p.m.) and running event finals that start at 3:05 p.m. (click here for complete meet information or here for real-time results).

UTSA enters the weekend at the top the conference standings in two events.

Leading the way is freshman Grace Williamson, who clocked a 2:09.35 in the 800 meters two weeks ago at the Bobcats Invitational. Meanwhile, the Roadrunners all-freshman 400m relay quartet of Laura Oseghae, Krystal Wynn, Greneshia Wright and Jhorden Hunter circled the track in 45.90 in San Marcos on April 30. All told, UTSA has six athletes that rank among the top three in the conference rankings.
