WEST POINT, N.Y.  – Army track and field will host Binghamton, Columbia, Middlebury and Patriot League foe Colgate on Saturday in a five-way team-scoring meet at West Point’s Shea Stadium. The event marks the final home competition of the season for the Black Knights, as Army will recognize its 17-member senior class prior to the day’s first event at 11:30 a.m.

The men’s hammer throw and javelin and women’s shot put will be the first events contested, all slated to begin at noon. The first running event will be the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase at 1 p.m. A scoring system of 10-8-6-4-2-1 will be utilized to determine team winners.

Army hosted a six-way team-scoring meet during the indoor season which also included Binghamton in the field. The Black Knight men claimed the team crown while the women placed fifth.

Army is coming off a pair of narrow Star Meet losses at Navy last Saturday. Despite the team score setbacks, the Black Knights recorded 14 IC4A or ECAC Championship-qualifying marks, including senior Mary Prakel’s Academy-record time in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Freshman Megan Gemar earned her first career Patriot League Rookie of the Week certificate on Monday following her winning height (3.72m) in the pole vault which listed second in program history.  

Following Saturday’s competition, Army will prepare for the always competitive Princeton-hosted Larry Ellis Invitational April 19-20. The Larry Ellis Invitational is one of two regular-season meets remaining on Army’s schedule, with postseason competition beginning on May 3 at the Patriot League Championships.
