ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech men’s and women’s track and field teams will travel to South Bend, Ind., to compete in the Meyo Invitational, Friday-Saturday, on the campus of Notre Dame. The meet is slated to begin with the men’s and women’s long jump on Friday at 5 p.m.
Former walk-on and senior Eric Massey improved on his school record in the men’s weight throw last weekend with a personal-record mark of 62 feet, 2 ¼ inches, to capture the event.
For the women, junior Ashlee Kidd established a NCAA Provisional time of 53.89 in the 400 meters (4th in NCAA) to finish in first place.
