Murray State Track and Field competed in the OVC Indoor Championships in Nashville, Tennessee last weekend and placed fourth.

The Murray State track and field team finished its indoor season by finishing fourth in the OVC championships in Nashville, Tennessee, last weekend. Murray State finished behind Tennessee State, Eastern Illinois and Eastern Kentucky.

Murray State track and field Head Coach Jenny Swieton said she wants the team to continue building on the positives and keep the momentum going into the outdoor season, which begins March 25 at Vanderbilt.

“We are glad we saw improvement this season but it is also important to remember we are not where we want to be yet,” Swieton said.

Swieton was also impressed by how well the freshmen handled their first conference championship and is ready for the next step into outdoor. She said the focus for her team over the next few weeks will be how they can improve.

“In some ways the indoor championship is like taking a 100-level class and outdoor is the 200-level equivalent. We still have a lot to learn but we are ready for the step,” Swieton said.
