The UNB Varsity Reds track and field team is ready to hit the track. They take part in their first official meet of the 2014-15 season this Saturday November 29th from 10am to 3pm at the Gagetown Last Chance meet at Oromocto Base.
Two weeks ago first year Sydney Macdonald set new team records at a small meet in Halifax in both the 60m and 60m hurdles and will also be looking to continue and build on that momentum as she competes in the 60m, long jump and 200m on Saturday.
"Our ladies have worked extremely hard this fall and I believe they are ready to state their intentions this weekend. While we don't peak or plan for huge performances this early in the season we do want our student-athletes to see what they have got in the tank and a little competition is a great way to do that," said head coach Jason Reindl.
