NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State track and field teams will have plenty of chances to compete locally and regionally during the 2017-18 indoor and outdoor seasons. Including NCAA Regional and National Championships, the Tigerbelles and Flying Tigers will visit 10 states this season.

“This year, we’re excited about the direction we’re going with our schedule,” Tennessee State Director of Track and Field Chandra Cheeseborough-Guice said. “We have some new meets on the schedule this year, like our one in West Virginia.
