DMR Finish at 2013 OVC Indoor Championship

Had the opportunity to mange the timing and results for the Ohio Valley Conference Indoor Track & Field Championship a couple weeks back. There were tons of outstanding races, and races with closer finishes than the Men’s DMR, but none more exciting. Take a look…

Track Season is Back

I’m lucky enough to work on a college campus and stay involved with the track & field team. I was an athlete for EIU from 2005-2010 – so even though I don’t compete anymore, I stay involved with the team by volunteering at the home meets. I manage the timing, results and scoreboard.

The team had their annual “Turkey Trials,” an inter-squad meet just before the Thanksgiving break. Its a pretty small meet, so it was just me and Coach Akers running the show. Its a good opportunity for the athletes to get a taste of competition after training for months, a good measuring stick for coaches, and a good chance for me to make sure the timing system is ready for indoor season.

Our first home meet is the annual EIU Early Bird, which is usually the 2nd Friday of December.
