Feb. 6 | Murfreesboro, Tenn.

STARTING LINE: The Tennessee State women’s track and field team makes the short trip to Murfreesboro, Tenn. to take part in Saturday’s MTSU Invitational.

ABOUT THE FIELD: The women’s field includes TSU, Austin Peay, Middle Tennessee, Eastern Kentucky, Belmont and Chattanooga.

LAST TIME OUT: The Tigerbelles were last in action on Jan. 22-23 in Bloomington, Ind. at the Gladstein Invitational. Competing in the pentathlon for the first time this indoor season, Clairwin Dameus set a new personal record with 3,898 points. The senior won the long jump and 60m hurdles as part of the pentathlon.
