OU Track & Field: John Jacobs Invitational
University of Oklahoma Vice President and Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione and Head Track and Field Coach Jim VanHootegem announced the 2019 OU track and field schedule
VanHootegem said both the indoor and outdoor schedule will feature strong competition at several high-quality meets “We're headed to great facilities and seeking great competition. We try from year to year to make sure we are going against all other conferences and the top teams in the nation. That is kind of the basis of our schedule."
OU gets the opportunity to host the Big 12 Outdoor Championship for the first time since 2011. The outdoor conference meet is slated for May 10-12 in Norman.
Oklahoma completed a resurfacing of the Mosier Indoor Facility and John Jacobs Track over the summer, “We obviously have a new track and we're excited about it. Our kids are enjoying it. I think they feel good about it and what we've done to our facility and they enjoy training on it and are ready to go.”
