NEW HAVEN, Conn. - This weekend, the Bulldogs will stay in New Haven to compete against predominantly local teams at the Southern Connecticut State University Owl Invitational. The meet marks the first outdoor competition for the squad after returning from a 10-day training trip in Southern California that concluded with some strong performances at the UC-Irvine Collegiate Classic.

The first events of the day will be the women's hammer throw and men's javelin throw, which both start at 10:00am. Running events will begin at 11:15am with the men's 3,000-meter steeplechase.

Shuttles will be available to transport spectators to the SCSU track complex, about a 15 minute ride, leaving Payne Whitney gym every half hour from 8:30am until 4:30pm.

Results will be posted on the SCSU track website and on www.yalebulldogs.com at the conclusion of the meet.
