MILWAUKEE – The Marquette University men’s and women’s track and field teams will send those not competing at the Drake Relays this wekeend to the UW-Whitewater Drake Alternative meet on Sunday, May 1.

MU will be sending a total of 28 men and 22 women to Sunday's meet in Whitewater, Wisconsin where action is slated to begin with field events at 10 a.m. Central time followed by running events at 11 a.m.

“While running event fields will be pretty thinned out due to Drake, field events at this meet will be very good,” head coach Bert Rogers said. “The Whitewater meet is more geared towards making strides in individual events for the BIG EAST Championships.”

Last weekend, Marquette sent 69 athletes to Champaign, Illinois to compete at the Illinois Twilight. The women’s side was highlighted by a trio of personal-bests in the hammer throw as Maya Marion (50.29 meters/165 feet), Keely Knobbe (47.46 meters/155 feet, 8 inches) and Amanda Hodgson (42.68 meters/140 feet) had impressive performances. 

For the men, Joel McBride also set a personal-best in the hammer with a toss of 48.34 meters (158 feet, 7 inches), while Terrance Howard notched a win in the discus with a personal-best of 48.43 meters (158 feet, 10 inches).
