MILWAUKEE - The Marquette University men's and women's track and field teams will host open tryouts for sprinters, jumpers and hurdlers on Wednesday, Sept. 4 through Friday, Sept. 7 at the Melvin "Bus" Shimek Memorial Track and Field Facility at Valley Fields.
All practices will start at 3:30 and students planning on trying out must attend each tryout date to be considered for a spot on the team.
Following all three practices, the coaching staff will consider each athlete's performance in tryouts when considering for a roster spot. For questions about sprints and jumps contact head coach Bert Rogers at (414) 288-5106 or by email.
Tryouts for the throwing events will be head Tuesday, Sept. 3 through Friday, Sept. 6. Students trying out will receive 2-3 individual throwing sessions that must be arranged with associate head coach Michael Koenning by contacting him at (414) 288-5787 or by email.
There will be no tryouts for distance events as cross country is already in season and the roster is set for track and field for the season.
