    JONESBORO, Ark. (12/8/23) – After a successful opener in Boston last week, the Arkansas State track and field teams are set to compete in the Crimson and Gold Invitational Saturday in Pittsburg, Kansas.

    Six distance runners got the season underway last week, but the rest of the A-State contingent will have a chance to compete for the first time this season. Action begins at 10:30 a.m. on the track with the men’s 5000 meters, while field events commence at noon with the men’s weight throw.

    A-State’s final event of the day – the women’s 3000 meters – is slated to begin at 9:45 p.m., while the men’s high jump and pole vault competitions will be the final field events at 5 p.m.

    THREE THINGS TO NOTE:

    1.     RECORD-BREAKING OPENER: Jacob Pyeatt wasted no time in continuing the trend of school records falling seemingly every week. Last Saturday in Boston, Pyeatt broke his own record in the men’s 5000 meters with a time of 14:14.63.

    2.     FAMILIAR LOCALE: Arkansas State is back in Pittsburg to open the season for the third year in a row and for the fourth time in the last five seasons. That lone season during that span, A-State hosted the Kickoff Klassic to begin the 2020-21 campaign.

    3.     DEBUT DAY: A total of 30 student athletes listed in A-State’s entries this Saturday are slated to make their track and field debut in the Scarlet and Black – 16 women and 14 men.

    NEXT UP

    After competing Saturday, Arkansas State will break for the holidays before returning to action Jan. 12-13 at the Commodore Challenge in Nashville, Tennessee.
