Feb. 14, 2008

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - After three weeks without a meet, the JU women's track and field team is back in action this weekend in Clemson, S.C., competing in the Tiger Invitational.

The Dolphins, who have won back-to-back Atlantic Sun indoor titles, enter the meet ranked 40th in the nation by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association in week two of their rankings.

"This meet will serve as the final preparation before the A-SUN Championship," said JU head coach Ron Grigg. "I expect to see strong performances from each of our event groups."

Junior jumpers Natasha Harvey and Shaquania Lundy lead the charge for the Dolphins, with both having already set NCAA provisional qualifying marks this year. Harvey jumped 20-9.75" in the long jump and Lundy recoreded a jump of 42-0" in the triple jump.

The Dolphins begin the A-Sun Championships on February 29 in Johnson City, Tenn.
