CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Bucs will get a taste of the environment they'll be racing in for next week's Big South Championship at the Eagle Twilight on Wednesday afternoon. The meet, hosted by Winthrop, will be at the same track at the conference championship that starts a week from Wednesday. This will be the last competition for the Bucs before the big meet.
The Eagle Twilight meet will begin at 4pm on Wednesday with the hammer throw. Track events will get underway at 5:30pm with the 2K steeplechase.

One week away from the conference championship, the Bucs will look to their upperclassmen for leadership down the stretch. Thankfully for CSU, their seniors are among the best athletes in the Big South. Senior Josiah Scarlett is currently in the conference's top 3 in the 400 hurdles and in the top 20 for the 400. Fellow senior Joshua Paramore leads the conference in the 100 and is second in the 200 with wind aided times.
Winthrop's Irwin Belk Track opened in 2005 as part of the school's track and soccer complex. The Mondo rubberized track surrounds a large field area for all the jump and throw events. The track will also host next week's Big South Championship for the third time in its existence.
