Track and Field Preview: Adidas Winthrop University Invitational

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – For the second consecutive week the USC Upstate track and field team will be in action, this weekend the Spartans make the short jaunt over to Rock Hill, S.C. to compete in the Adidas Winthrop University Invitational.

Last weekend the Spartans had a strong showing at the 49er Classic in Charlotte, N.C. Five Spartans finished the weekend with top-10 finishes in their respective events and both the men's and women's 4x100 meter relay teams finished in the top-10.

Big South Indoor Freshman of the Year Angelnique Bryant (Fort Mill, S.C.) continued an impressive rookie campaign with a second place finish in the 100 meter dash. Big South Indoor Field Athlete of the Year Adanma Uzor (Mauldin, S.C.) showed once again why she is one of the best in the Conference. The sophomore finished in the top-three of the Long Jump competition.

Once again the Spartans will be competing against a wide range of teams across the Division I, II and III levels.
