TCU Releases Indoor & Outdoor Schedules

Track and field head coach Darryl Anderson announced the teams’ 2017-2018 schedules. The Horned Frogs will travel to meets hosted by the Big 12, SEC and Pac-12 schools and will compete against programs from all Power Five Conferences.

“We were looking at the level of competition,” Anderson said. “We want to see every Power Five Conference before the postseason and run against the best of the best.”

The men’s team will be returning most of last season’s athletes, and the women’s team will be featuring several newcomers.

“Our men’s team is almost 99% intact from last year with some additions,” Anderson said. “On the women’s team, we’ve got some younger girls coming with some good credentials, and we want to get them started immediately.”

TCU will open the indoor season Dec. 9 at the Texas A&M Invitational, where they will return four weeks later to run again. TCU will also compete in Texas Tech’s new facility and return to New Mexico, where they appeared last year.

Indoor postseason begins in Iowa, Feb. 23 at the Big 12 Indoor Track & Field Championships. Two weeks later, March 9-10 qualifying Frogs will travel to College Station for the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championship where they will conclude the indoor season.

Following the conclusion of the indoor season, March 16-17 the Horned Frogs will host the TCU Invitational to kick off their outdoor season. Throughout the outdoor season, TCU will travel to several Power Five schools to compete at meets such as the Texas Relays, Arizona State’s Sun Angel Classic, Florida’s Tom Jones Memorial and the Arkansas Invitational.

To kick off the outdoor postseason, TCU will compete at the Big 12 Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Waco, TX May 11-13. Two weeks later, the Horned Frogs will travel to Sacramento, California, for the NCAA Outdoor Regionals May 24-26. To conclude the season, qualifying individuals will travel to Eugene, Oregon, to compete at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships June 6-9. TCU sent four individual athletes and three relays to the national championships last season.
