CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Virginia men's and women's track & field teams will return to action this week (Jan. 23-24) as they travel to Kentucky for the Rod McCravy Memorial Meet Friday and Saturday at the Nutter Field House. Competition starts each day at 10 a.m. with the men's heptathlon. Friday's field events begin at 3 p.m., with track events starting at 6 p.m. Saturday's field events begin at 11 a.m., with track events starting at noon.
Live results of the meet will be available on VirginiaSports.com. There will be live coverage of the meet on SEC Network Plus on Saturday from noon until 4:30 p.m. Cable and satellite subscribers of the SEC Network can log-on to watch SEC Network Plus events on ESPN3.com and the WatchESPN app.
The meet will feature one of the strongest fields in the nation prior to the NCAA Championships. The Cavalier women will compete against seven of the top nine teams in the nation (No. 1 Florida, No. 3 Oregon, No. 4 Georgia, No. 5 Texas, No. 6 Kentucky, No. 7 Arkansas and No. 9 Florida State), while the Cavalier men face six of the top 11 teams nationally (No. 1 Florida, No. 2 Oregon, No. 3 Arkansas, No. 8 Texas, No. 10 LSU and No. 11 Georgia).
Among the Cavaliers scheduled to compete are sophomore Jordan Young (Windsor, Ontario), who set the school record in the men's weight throw last week at the Virginia Tech Invitational, and senior Jordan Lavender (Nashville, Tenn.), who set the school record in the women's 200m and 400m during last year's indoor season. It will be the season debut for two Cavaliers that won ACC titles last spring, sophomore thrower Filip Mihaljevic (Livno, Bosnia and Herzegovina) and junior distance runner Kyle King (Yorktown, Va.). It will also be the season debut for the Cavalier men's distance medley relay, an event Virginia won at last year's Rod McCravy Memorial Meet, breaking the facility record.
Virginia will return to action next week (Jan. 30-31) with the John Thomas Terrier Invitational in Boston, Mass.
