Meet Information

BUIES CREEK, N.C. – The Fighting Camels' indoor track regular season has come to a close, and CU is gearing up for the Big South Indoor Championships this weekend. The conference meet is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 25-26 in Winston-Salem, N.C. at the JDL Fast Track, where the Camels have competed four times this season.

Campbell has broken eight indoor school records this season and currently holds 16 of the top marks in the Big South this year, and the Camels hope those marks will translate at the conference meet. The conference will awards points to the top-8 finishers in each event, and the men's and women's team with the most points at the end of day two will be crowned champions. For a breakdown of how the meet will be scored, view the chart below.

Last year, the Liberty men's and women's teams took home team titles with 258 and 178.5 points, respectively. Campbell's men and women each finished third overall with 87 and 108 points, respectively. The closest Campbell has come to a Big South team title was when the men's team logged back-to-back runner-up finishes in 2014 and 2015.

The Camels will begin the meet Saturday at 2:30 p.m. with the women's long jump and end day one with the men's DMR at 6:35 p.m. Day two begins at noon with the women's high jump and will end after the men's 4x400m relay, scheduled for 4:45 p.m. A full breakdown of the schedule, as well as meet/conference records can be viewed at the 'Meet Information' link above. Live results will be provided at the 'Live stats' link throughout the weekend, and updates will be provided from @GoCamelsRun on Twitter.

Following the meet, the Camels will await final results from across the country to see if any athletes qualify for the NCAA Indoor National Championships. Senior Amon Terer is the only Camel that would currently qualify as he ranks 6th in the country in the men's 5K and 13th in the 3K. Freshman Amon Kemboi currently ranks 18th in the 5K and 23rd in the 3K.
