On Satruday, December 2, the men's track and field team challenged the program's alumni in the annual Blue-White Alumni Meet held at URI's Mackal Field House.
After an exciting day of competition, the event moved into the Alumni Center on Upper College Road where approximately 120 student-athletes, alumni and guests attended the post-meet reception. There, the alumni contingent presented Head Coach John Copeland, who has been at URI for the last 25 years, with a donation of over $8,000 towards the present team. Senior Associate Athletic Director Lauren Anderson represented the athletic department at this event.
The men's track & field squad will officially open its indoor season on Friday, January 12, 2007, when it hosts the Rhody Collegiate Open, slated to begin at 3:30 p.m.
