      JONESBORO, Ark. (12/8/22) – Another highly-anticipated indoor track and field season begins Friday for the Arkansas State track and field teams, which are set to compete in a pair of meets in Pittsburg, Kansas.

      A trio of athletes get things started for the three-time defending Sun Belt Conference champions at the Boo Rogers Combined Events, beginning Friday at the Robert W. Plaster Center.

      Isabel Daines competes in the pentathlon, while newcomers Patryk Baran and Colby Eddowes compete in the first four events of the heptathlon before finishing the seven-event competition on Saturday. Action begins at 1 p.m. Friday with the pentathlon 60-meter hurdles.

      In addition to the final three events of the heptathlon, which begins at 9 a.m., Saturday will also see over 40 A-State athletes compete in the Crimson and Gold Invitational. Action begins at noon with the men’s weight throw and women’s shot put, while the first event on the track for Arkansas State will be the women’s 60-meter hurdles.

      3 THINGS TO NOTE:

      1. FAMILIAR PLACE: This weekend marks the second straight year and third time in the last four seasons Arkansas State has opened the indoor season at Pittsburg State.
      2. HELLO, THERE: Out of 44 athletes slated to compete for Arkansas State this weekend, 14 are set to compete in their first track and field meet in the Scarlet and Black.
      3. RECORD WATCH: Keep an eye on the heptathlon record this weekend. A-State brought in a pair of talented multi-event athletes in Patryk Baran and Colby Eddowes in the offseason. Will Oliver set the current school record of 5,423 in 2013.
