Lubbock, Texas - After a weekend off, Red Raider track and field will return to action this weekend at the NCAA Midwest Regional Championships, in Austin, Texas. Tech will return to Mike A. Myers Stadium for the second time this season for the two-day meet. Field events will begin at 1 p.m. on Friday, May 26 and the running will start at 4 p.m. On Saturday, field events begin at 1 p.m. with running events starting at 5:30 p.m.

Defending their 2005 Regional titles will be Marlon Odom (110M hurdles), Bryan Scott (400M Hurdles) and Lacy Wilson (high jump). The top five in each individual event and the top three relay teams will earn automatic advancement to the NCAA Championships, in Sacramento, in June. At-large bids will also be given out based on season performance.

The men's squad is currently ranked No. 17 by the USTFCCCA. Individually in the Trackwire 25 Dandy Dozen, Odom is seated sixth and Shawon Harris is No. 8 in the 110M hurdles.

On the women's side, in the Dandy Dozen, Althea Chambers, the 2006 Big 12 800M Champion, is ranked ninth in the 800M and Wilson is seated at No. 4 in the high jump rankings.

In the national rankings, Harris (fourth), Odom (fifth) and Daryl Burgess have maintained their places on the 110M hurdles list. Harris and Bryan Scott are seated at 14th and 16th, respectively, in the 400M hurdles rankings. The men's 4x400M also has the fourth-fastest time in the nation.

In the field events, Sage Thames is ranked 11th in the pole vault and Bobby Evers is sitting at 15th in the long jump.

On the women's side, Wilson is No. 4 in the nation in the high jump, Sabrina Taylor is seated at 15th in the long jump, in the discus D'Andra Carter is ranked 16th and Chambers is No. 23 in the 800M.

This season's squad is continuing to tear through the Tech track and field record books. A total of 12 records have been set in six events. At the 2006 Big 12 Championships, three more records fell on the women's side.

Carter re-set the discus record to 179'-5", after previously breaking the record twice. Tia Barginear continued her dominance in the 400M hurdles, setting a new school record of 1:00.74, also her first regional qualifying time of the season. Taylor made her first stamp on the record books. She broke Tori Polk's long jump record of 20'-9.25" with her leap of 20'-11.25", also a personal best.
