Irish On The Road This Weekend

Jan. 31, 2014

NOTRE DAME, Ind. — After strong performances at last weekend’s Notre Dame Invitational, the men’s and women’s track and field teams will be on the road this weekend. Part of the team traveled to Albuquerque, N.M., for the New Mexico Team Invitational today, while others will spend the weekend in Bloomington, Ind., for the Indiana Relays.

Last year at Indiana, the Irish claimed six victories and posted 35 top-five finishes. This is Notre Dame’s first trip to the New Mexico Team Invitational.

Head coach Joe Piane has said that these events are meant to get athletes qualified for both the ACC and NCAA Championships and to help them continue to improve before bigger meets later in the season.

Both events are two-day affairs, and results will be posted here at
