Wildcats Prepare for Pair of Meets this Weekend


LUBBOCK, Texas & SEATTLE, Wash. – For the second time this season, Arizona Track & Field will send competitors to a pair of away meets this Friday and Saturday. Both the Texas Tech Jarvis Scott Open in Lubbock, Texas and the Husky Invitational in Seattle, Wash., are two-day meets that will begin on Friday for the team. The majority of the Wildcats will head to Texas, while the distance squad returns to Seattle.
 
“Every sport designs their training and schedules based upon peaking at the right time,” said Head Coach Fred Harvey. “Our next three competitions at Texas Tech, the University of Washington, and the USA Championships are in place for that reason. We are mentally and physically fit and our expectations are to have the highest level of performances and personal bests of the indoor season. No excuses. The facilities are top of the line, as well as the competition, and we are ready for the challenge.”
 
The Texas Tech Jarvis Scott Open begins at 2:00 p.m. MST on Friday and at 9:00 a.m. MST on Saturday. Both days of competition can be streamed on ESPN+ ($). Live results for both days can be found here.
 
The Husky Invitational gets started at 2:30 p.m. MST on Saturday and 10:00 a.m. MST on Friday. The Wildcats will not be competing in any field events at the competition. Live results for both days can be found here.

It was the second consecutive week that the pair finished one and two in the event. Landa posted a season best throw and Michelini had a personal best throw, which helped catapult the event group to the number one ranking in the nation in this week’s USTFCCCA Event Squad Rankings. Landa’s mark ranks 15th in the nation and Michelini’s ranks 19th. The weekend also included 17 new individual personal bests for the Wildcats.
 
Last time that Arizona’s distance crew competed in Seattle, Wash., the team saw a trio of personal bests from Sailor Hutton, Kara Mickelson, and Cade Russo. That came in the opening weekend of the indoor season at the University of Washington Preview.
