After a successful home meet last weekend that included 20 event wins, the Baylor track and field team will kick off action at the 92nd annual Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays on Thursday, and continuing through Saturday.

Get your heat sheets ready, because the Baylor track and field team is back at it for the third straight weekend of the 2019 season, as the Bears will compete at the Texas Tech Invitational in Lubbock on Friday and Saturday.

BELTON – In her first meet of the season, Annie Rhodes Johnigan already looks to be in midseason form.

Baylor track’s Kiana Horton will wear the red, white and blue singlet of Team USA for a second time this summer when she competes at the North American, Central American and Caribbean (NACAC) Senior Championships this weekend in Toronto.
