SBC track championships

UTA hopes to claim its third title of the year when it competes in the Sun Belt Conference (SBC) Outdoor Track and Field Championship Friday-Sunday, May 12-14, at Maverick Stadium, 1307 W. Mitchell St.

Admission is free on Friday. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for ages 6-17 Saturday and Sunday at utatickets.com. Admission is free all days for ages 5 and younger and those with a student ID from an SBC school.

A win will be the Mavericks’ 10th overall outdoor title and complete the triple crown in track and field events for this season. UTA’s men’s team won the SBC cross country and indoor track titles earlier this season. The Mavs last won a triple crown in the 2013-14 school year.

Going into the competition, the UTA men have the fastest time in the 4x400 relay, and the women have the third fastest in the 4x100 relay. Top individual contenders include Helen Falda, top, pole vault; bottom from left, Craig Lautenslager and Michael Guerrero, men's 5,000 meter and the 10,000 meter; and Tamerah Gorham, women's 800 meter.
