Track & Field Aims for 5th Straight Conference Championship Win This Weekend

The Golden Tigers track and field team will compete in the Southern States Athletic Conference Championship this Friday and Saturday, April 21-22, in Mobile, Alabama.

The team has won the conference championship for the last four years, every year Brenau has had a track and field program. Athletic Director Mike Lochstampfor said it would be “a significant achievement” for Brenau to continue to win consecutive championships every year since the inception of the program.

Five SSAC track and field teams will compete in the conference finals this weekend: Brenau, Dalton (Georgia) State College, Loyola (Louisiana) University, William Carey (Mississippi) University and University of Mobile (Alabama).

“We feel good about our chances,” Head Coach Byron Kramer said, “but we know that it is not a foregone conclusion, since several of our opponents have improved this year. We have worked hard and will be ready.”

Updates throughout the championship will be posted at http://www.ssacsports.com/sport/0/17.php. Please join us in wishing Coach Kramer and the team good luck this weekend!
