BOCA RATON, Fla. - The Florida Atlantic University track and field contingent will compete over four days this weekend in El Paso, Texas, at the 2017 Conference USA Outdoor Championship meet.

The championships, held at Kidd Field on the campus of UTEP, start on Thursday with Frida Thorsås competing in the first half of her heptathlon. The heptathlon will conclude Friday, and Christina Schultz will run the 10,000 meters that night as well. On Saturday, several Owls are scheduled to run in seven different preliminary races, and the finals for those that qualify (as well as Thorsås in javelin and two other meet-ending races) wrap the competition Sunday.

"We feel excited and ready for the C-USA Outdoor Championships," said Head Coach Alex Smolka. "El Paso is slightly unique for us because of the altitude and dryness, but we feel we have trained extremely hard and we are well prepared to perform well this weekend."
