AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn track and field will head to Clemson, S.C. Friday and Saturday to compete at the Bob Pollack Meet.
The Tigers are one of 11 teams competing this weekend alongside two other fellow SEC teams in Alabama and Tennessee. Clemson, Georgia Tech, Louisville, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and J.C. Smith make up the other eight teams in the field.
"I'm really looking forward to this weekend," Auburn head coach Ralph Spry said. "After our first two competitions, I like where we are. I think we did some good things early on. This weekend we are most likely bringing everybody. I think it will be a great competition. There will be some great teams there, and Clemson has a really great facility."
Auburn will look to build off consecutive successful weekends in Nashville heading into the meet. Over the past two weeks, the Tigers have compiled 38 personal records and 12 wins.
"I expect to have some really good marks this weekend," Spry said. "We've got a lot of young kids and we're trying to see how they are progressing in all their areas. This presents a really great opportunity to compete well. I'm looking forward to it and it should be exciting."
The Bob Pollack Meet begins Friday at 3:30 p.m. CT with the men's long jump kicking off the field events and the women's 60m hurdles getting things started on the track. Live Results can be found here.
