BLACKSBURG, Va. (Feb. 4, 2010) - A pair of ETSU top sprinters will head up to Blacksburg, Va. this weekend as senior Duronal Monal (Belle Glade, Fla.) and junior Mike James (Palm Bay, Fla.) compete in the Virginia Tech Elite Meet inside the Rector Field House.

The Buccaneer scholar-athletes will go head-to-head against runners from Florida State, Florida, Clemson, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Kentucky, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Wake Forest and the host Hokies.
