Track and Field: Ohio heads to Notre Dame for another big meet

Ohio looks to rebound in another crowded meet Friday and Saturday at Notre Dame in the Meyo Invitational. 

The Bobcats are coming off a meet where they were challenged by a crowded field of tougher competition at Marshall. This tougher competition led to normally high finishers like Olivia Mayfield and the “A" 4x400 relay team to finish farther back in the pack.

Mayfield looks to improve on the 10th place finish last week after not finishing lower than third in any other meet this season.

The "A" relay team comprised of Emily Deering, Marissa Handle, Erin Stewart and Gracie Huffman will look to bounce back after finishing ninth in the last meet after not finishing lower than fifth in any other meet this season. In the individual 400-meter dash, the members of this relay team came in lower than normal as well, so as a group and individually this unit will look to rebound.

The Bobcats will look to continue to build off the solid performances they got at Marshall from Jordan Porter who came in fifth in the shot put, Alyssa Atkinson who came in fifth in the mile and Christina Seas who came in sixth in the 5k.

When Ohio heads to Notre Dame, it will be for yet another crowded meet that contains athletes from 42 schools including some from top conferences like the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Big Ten. 

Within this crowded field of competitors will be athletes from Mid-American Conference schools like Central Michigan, Toledo, Miami, Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan and Northern Illinois.

Competing against athletes from these top conferences and from MAC rivals will be big for the Bobcats as they look to get qualified for the MAC meet as the indoor season begins to hit the stretch run.
