After the Hurricane Collegiate Invitational, the Kansas State track and field teams have their eyes on the ESU Relays against Emporia State.

At the Hurricane Collegiate Invitational, the K-State placed sixth out of eight teams.

The field events will begin at 11 a.m. with the hammer throw, discus and javelin. The pole vault, high jump and long jump will start at 11:30 a.m. The triple jump will start once the long jump is complete, and the shot put will start at the conclusion of the trio of 11 a.m. throws.

The running events are scheduled to begin at noon with the 300 meters. The end of the running events is scheduled to conclude at 7:20 p.m. with the men’s and women’s 4X400m relays.

K-State will then compete in the Jim Click Combined Events in Tucson, Arizona, on April 6-7.
