CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – The Golden Eagles concluded action on Saturday at the Joey Haines Invitational hosted by SEMO.
In a meet that marked the outdoor season debut for most, it was a challenging day for all due to weather conditions that included rain.
“Weather conditions weren’t ideal for terrific performances, but I thought we competed hard,” said Marquette head coach Bert Rogers. “In terms of the meet process, such as getting work in and making improvements as we head forward, we had some solid really efforts overall.”
