MILWAUKEE - The Marquette University men's and women's track and field teams will send 17 student-athletes to last chance meets this week in Naperville, Ill., and Louisville, Ky. Eleven runners and jumpers will head to the Gregory Invitational in Naperville on Thursday and Friday, while associate head coach Michael Koenning will take six throwers to the Cardinal Twilight in Louisville.

Action begins Thursday evening when freshmen Ryan Kaestner and Brittney Feivor will compete at the Gregory Invitational in the 10,000-meter run. Friday's events in Naperville will start for the Golden Eagles with Omo Tseumah in the women's high jump at 3 p.m., followed by BIG EAST Conference men's high jump champion Michael Saindon. All-BIG EAST performer Brett Tobin will also compete in the men's triple jump before the running events begin at 5 p.m.

Sophomore Kellie Greenwood, who placed third at the BIG EAST meet in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, will compete in the event to close out action at the Gregory Invitational on Friday evening.



A contingent featuring four BIG EAST outdoor champions will accompany Koenning to Louisville on Friday. Samantha Kennedy, a recently crowned women's hammer throw conference champ, will kick off competition at 9 a.m. Central time at the Throws Field, followed  by William Koeck and Bret Hardin in the men's hammer and Kristen Gaffey and Kirsten Walker in the women's shot put.

Freshman John Krzyszkowski, who sits 26th in the NCAA West Region in the javelin, will throw at 1:30 p.m. CT at Cardinal Park, while Gaffey will compete in the discus at the same location later in the afternoon.

Athletes competing this weekend are attempting to move up the NCAA West Region descending order list and solidify themselves among the top-48 competitors regionally. The NCAA West Preliminary Rounds of the NCAA Championships will be held on May 29-31 in Fayetteville, Ark.
