1800 from 15 States and Canada set to Compete at Volunteer Track Classic Apr 16, 2009

For over 45 years the Volunteer Track Classic has been a fixture on the Southeastern high school track and field schedules. This year should be no different.  A National Scholastic Sports Foundation (www.nssf.org) Select meet, the 2009 Vol Classic will see the inclusion of collegiate competition as the UT Lady Vol  College sections bring in the 2009 NCAA Indoor Champion Lady Vols, Alabama, Ohio State and Carson Newman College.  On the high school side the action should be great on the track as well as the field as numerous nationally ranked teams and individuals start competition Friday at 5PM.


 An old-fashioned dual meet with Texas A&M and a trip to New York City highlight the indoor slate, and a trio of home events and the annual trek to Philadelphia for the Penn Relays headline the outdoor itinerary on the 2009 University of Tennessee women’s track & field schedule, released Tuesday by Lady Vol Head Coach J.J. Clark.
