A total of 65 student-athletes will head to New York for the Golden Eagles. The action begins Friday morning at 8 a.m. Central time with the women’s pentathlon before shifting to the men’s heptathlon at 10:15 a.m. CT.

Saturday’s events will determine the BIG EAST Indoor Championship with track finals beginning at 9:20 a.m. CT. The event concludes with the awards ceremony scheduled for 1:40 p.m. CT.

The women’s team is going for its third-straight indoor championship after finishing 24 points clear of runner-up Villanova last year. The Golden Eagles feature a strong contingent of field athletes entering Friday as Marin McClowry (high jump), Julie Clayton (pole vault), Terica Harris (long jump, triple jump), and Maya Marion (shot put) all lead their respective events with the season’s top BIG EAST mark.

Harris is the lone returning event champion for MU after sweeping both the long and triple jumps a season ago.

On the track, Cassy Goodrich will be one to watch for in the 400 meters, Gemma Tedeschi in the pole vault and Maya Marion in the shot put.

The men are seeking their first team title after three-straight runner-up finishes, including finishing behind DePaul by a measly 11 points in 2017. The team returns a pair of individual champs in William Ford (pole vault) and Daniel Armstrong (high jump).

Also returning after redshirting last season is Joel Swanberg, who claimed three podium finishes with two titles (heptathlon, pole vault) in 2016. For his career, the senior has made the podium nine times with six individual BIG EAST victories.

Like the women’s side, the men also feature a strong list of field athletes who currently lead the conference standings: Armstrong (high jump), Swanberg (pole vault), Terrance Howard (weight throw), and William Eggers (heptathlon). On the track, Joshua Word (60 meters) and Mathew Peter (60 hurdles) rank second by a slim margin.
