HARRISONBURG, Va., May 9, 2012 - One week after winning its first Colonial Athletic Association Championship the James Madison track and field team is heading to Princeton, N.J. to compete in the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships.
Throughout the season, Madison has qualified 12 athletes to compete in 12 individual events as well as having qualified all three relays for ECAC competition. The Dukes hope their recent CAA success will carry over to ECACs.
"Right now we're still coming down from winning the CAA title," head coach Ta' Frias said. "We're starting to refocus on this weekend's meet and we're looking forward to having a good showing. In the recent past we have been able to hold steady in the top 10 at ECACs and we hope to continue that trend this year. Our goal is to advance as many athletes to finals as possible and hopefully we can get some scoring marks out of them."
Competition begins at the William Weaver Track and Field Stadium in Princeton, N.J. on Friday, May 11 at 5:30 p.m. and will continue through Sunday afternoon.
