BATON ROUGE, La. - A quick trip to Baton Rouge, La. awaits the Tulane track and field program on Friday (Feb. 17), as 14 student-athletes will compete in the final tune-up before the championship portion of the schedule starts. The Green Wave will kick off competition inside the Maddox Field House at 3:00 p.m. with the long jump.

Hilary Woods will look to carry on her steady improvement in the 60 meter and improve her seed entering next week's Conference USA championships. The sophomore currently ranks 28th in C-USA in the 60 meter event with a career-best time of 7.72. Her three races of 7.78 seconds or better have tied or eclipsed her best time from her rookie campaign.

The distance group will see their most extensive competition of the indoor campaign on the Maddox Field House oval. Johanna Gretschel enters the mile run with a season-best time of 5:23.68, while Emmi Aguillard will run the event for the first time in 2012. Paige Callahan will look to lead the pack of 3,00 meter participants, with Aimee Arceneaux and Katherine Crabtree also taking part in the race.



Freshman Tiffany Kenney will continue her preparations for the pentathlon at the Conference USA championships with a pair of events at the LSU Twilight. Kenney will enter the blocks in the 60-meter Hurdles and take to the runway in the long jump on Friday evening.

In the long jump, senior Raquelle Collins will attempt to move up on the C-USA indoor lists in her final tune-up before the championships. The New Iberia, La. native sits in tenth among her conference constituents in the event with a season-best leap of 5.76-meters and is just two-tenths of a meter from moving into the top six.

Next weekend, Tulane will head to Birmingham, Ala. to compete in the 2012 Conference USA Indoor Championships at the Birmingham CrossPlex. The event begins on Saturday, Feb. 25 and concludes on Sunday, Feb. 26.
