Track and Field Preview: 49ers Classic

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The USC Upstate track and field teams are back in action this weekend at the 49er Classic in Charlotte, N.C.

This will be the first outdoor season event of the 2019 season, earlier today the two teams were picked to finish in the middle of the Big South Conference.

Both the men's and women's teams had productive outings at the Big South Indoor Championships last month. Adanma Uzor (Mauldin, S.C.) was named Female Field Athlete of the Meet after she won the triple jump competition with a leap of 12.05 meters. The Palmetto State native also finished second in the long jump with a pounce of 5.76 meters. Angelnique Bryant (Fort Mill, S.C.) is looking to continue her successful freshman campaign. Bryant was named the Big South Freshman of the Year after she won the 60 meter dash competition.

The USC Upstate men's track team had top showings from Tanner Saunders (Pickens, S.C.), Javin Holston, Tony Augusta (Arlington, Va.), the men's DMR team and the men's 4X400 relay team. Saunders had a pair of top-five finishes in the 400 meter dash and 60 meter hurdles event. Holston finished sixth in the 60 meters dash and Augusta had a top-ten finish in both the weight throw and shot put. The men's DMR team finished in third place at the Indoor Championships and the 4x400 team had a fourth place finish.

USC Upstate will race against a variety of schools from the Division I, Division II and Division III levels. Live stats of the competition can be found at the link provided: https://flashresults.com/2019_Meets/Outdoor/03-14_49erClassic/
