NEW HAVEN, Conn. - This Saturday, the Bulldogs will compete in their first meet of 2009, after a five-week break from competition. At the first competition of the indoor season--held in December--the Bulldogs performed well, with five athletes meeting the qualifying standards for the IC4A Championships. The team hopes to build on these strong initial performances, and carry momentum into the rest of the season.

The first men's event of the day will be the weight throw, which will commence at 9:00 a.m. The first running event of the day will be the mile run, which is set to start at 12:20 p.m. The competition will close with the men's 4x400-meter relay, to be held at 5:45 p.m.

Buses will be available to transport spectators to and from Coxe Cage, and will leave Payne Whitney Gym every 15 minutes starting at 7:30 a.m. Results will be available on www.yalebulldogs.com at the conclusion of the meet.
