TUCSON, Ariz. – This Friday, the University of Arizona Track and Field program will travel to Flagstaff, Ariz. to compete at NAU Friday Night Duels, the team’s first indoor meet of the 2020 season.

“I am very excited to see what this section of the team can accomplish in their opening competition,” said head Track and Field coach Fred Harvey. “We will not compete any of our distance athletes and a number of athletes competing will run events to help our team’s final development at the Mt. Pac’s and NCAA Championships. We will only get a partial view of what we are going to be later, but based upon our fall training and the results of the Red-White-Blue meet, the Friday Night Duels will be very exciting and a great test for the team.”

Eleven Wildcats will be making their Arizona Track and Field debut on Friday: Anna Foreman, Sarahvaughn King, Aoife Martin, Athena Montgomery, Gracie Reinholz, Morgan Rhett, Donovan Jordan-Scott, Tanner Kippes, Israel Oloyede, Trent Stimac and Naseem Woods.

Competition is set to begin with field events at 2 p.m. followed by running events at 4:30 p.m.

A complete recap of the meet will be posted to ArizonaWildcats.com. You can also follow @ArizonaTrack on Twitter throughout the day for live updates.
