MILWAUKEE - The Marquette University men's and women's track and field teams continue indoor action Feb. 7-8 at the Meyo Invitational and the UW-Parkside Track and Field Classic.

Marquette's runners and jumpers will compete at the Meyo Invitational in Notre Dame, Ind., while the throwers head to Parkside at the Frank Petretti Fieldhouse in Kenosha, Wis.

"The runners and jumpers are looking to take advantage of the big meet setting this weekend at Notre Dame," Marquette head coach Bert Rogers said. "The Meyo Invite is always a fun meet with national-level competition. Notre Dame's large track is conducive to fast times and that is what we are expecting. The throwers are looking to get some good technical work done in a smaller scale setting at UW-Parkside on Saturday. This begins their buildup to BIG EAST."

Events at the Meyo Invitational kick off Friday at the Loftus Sports Center with the women's pole vault and women's long jump at 3 p.m. Central time. Action continues Saturday, beginning with the women's triple jump at 10 a.m. CT and concluding for MU with the men's 200-meter run at 1:15 p.m. CT.

Alison Parker returns to action in the mile at Meyo, after setting a program freshman record of 2:12.20 to win the 800-meter run at the Jack Jennett Invitational on Feb. 1. Freshman Oumaru Abdulahi will also look to build on his recent success after jumping a BIG EAST Conference-best 2.10 meters to win the men's high jump at the same meet.

Senior Caryle Schuh returns to Notre Dame after setting the women's long jump program record at the Blue and Gold Invitational this past December with a mark of 6.06 meters (19 feet, 10.75 inches). The Appleton, Wis. native is set to compete in the 200-meter as well.

The Marquette throwers begin competition at the UW-Parkside Track and Field Classic Saturday at 10 a.m. with the weight throw, and round out the day's action with the shot put.

Junior Will Koeck has started off the indoor season with a bang by shattering the Marquette program record in the weight throw at the Jack Jennett Invitational with toss of 20.11 meters (65 feet, 11.75 inches). Koeck now touts the top mark in the BIG EAST this season and ranks 24th in all of NCAA Division I.

Koeck, the reigning BIG EAST Conference Men's Field Athlete of the Week, will compete in the weight throw and shot put at Parkside.

MU has garnered two of the first three BIG EAST Men's Field Athlete of the Week awards in 2013-14, with redshirt junior Bret Hardin capturing the first men's award on Jan. 22. He will also join Koeck in both the weight throw and shot put.
