BOONE, N.C. (Jan. 22, 2010) - The ETSU track and field team had a good showing at the 2011 Mountaineer Open in Boone, N.C. Saturday, as the Bucs saw 13 athletes post top five finishes.

"Jarrod, Tim, and Ifrish did a great job on the men's side, and Jasmine and Lexie helped to lead the women. We did rest a few of our sprinters and jumpers this weekend, so we are really looking forward to sending a full squad to Liberty next weekend to continue the success that we had today."
