Events to Watch

Men's 60-Meter Dash

All eyes will be on Greg Henderson as he looks to sweep the 60 and 200 meter dashes for the third consecutive meet. Henderson will also be looking to improve upon his standing for the IC4A Championships in two weeks.

Women's 60-Meter Dash

The Keydet women's program was not known for its sprinting ability...until the current junior class arrived at VMI. Kerisha Goode, Mia McClain, Bria Anderson and Yaa Agyepong-Wiafe all rank in the top 10 in the SoCon in this event and will be key to VMI's hopes at the SoCon Championship next weekend. In the meantime, all except Goode are entered in this event at Tech.

Women's Long Jump

Last season, this was one of the better events for the Keydet women, but the sprints have taken precedence so far this year. Still, Bria Anderson and Julia Logan both rank in the top eight in the SoCon and will be looking to move up conference placement here.

Next Time Out

The VMI men's team returns to action March 3, when it begins the IC4A Championships, while the women's team is next in competition at the SoCon Championships in Johnson City, Tenn. Feb. 25-26.
