SAN ANTONIO – Taking on the second competition of the 2024 outdoor season, the UTSA track & field teams are headed to College Station this Saturday, March 23, for the Texas A&M Invitational on Saturday at E.B. Cushing Stadium.

A single-day event at the home of the Aggies, competition will get under way at 12:30 p.m. on March 23, opening with the women’s hammer throw and continuing in half-hour increments through 15 total field events that conclude at approximately 7 p.m. on the women’s triple jump. Running events will open the evening portion with the 4x100-meter relays at 5:30 p.m., concluding the day near 9 p.m. with the 4x400-meter relays.

The Roadrunners will be in competition with athletes from six programs, including Little Rock, North Texas, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas A&M-Kingsville and UT Rio Grande Valley.

UTSA just kicked off its outdoor season last weekend in a two-day affair at the Park West Athletics Complex, hosting the annual UTSA Invitational. The Roadrunners delivered 41 top-10 finishes in the meet, with 18 total medals, including five first-place performances. Highlighting the group, Brice Chabot earned gold in the men’s 200-meter with a top-three in the NCAA 20.49, just ahead of Dennis Phillips’ second-place 20.54 clocking – fifth in the nation. Phillips also earned the win in the 100-meter with a 10.20 time, also third in the nation. Dahlia Barnes registered a career-best women’s long jump measurement of 5.76m (18-10.75). UTSA’s 4x100-meter relay squad of Gabriel Binion, Chabot, Oliver Swinney and Phillips produced a combined 39.72 for the fourth-fastest time in the UTSA top-5, winning the relay event with the eight-best NCAA time. Victor Charo also grabbed gold in his first career win, beating out the 800-meter field with a career-best 1:52.16 that leads the American Athletic Conference.

The Texas A&M Invitational will be held at E.B. Cushing Stadium on Texas A&M’s west campus. Just five years old, the state-of-the-art facility seats 2,200 and features an IAAF certified Beynon track surface with wide turns. In addition to the nine-lane oval, there is a nine-lane sprint and hurdle runway inside the oval. Field events held inside the oval include high jump, pole vault, long jump, triple jump and shot put. The stadium is adjacent to the Anderson Track and Field Complex to be used for longer throws.
