FRESNO, Calif. -- The Fresno State track and field team opens their outdoor schedule Saturday afternoon with a dual meet against Cal Poly. Throwing events will begin at 12:00 p.m., at Warmerdam Field on the campus of Fresno State and then the meet will move to Veteran's Memorial Stadium with the jumping events beginning at 2:00 p.m.
For the Bulldog men, it will be the first meet of the 2014 season for many of them. The only competition they have had so far this year was if they competed in the Run for the Dream at the Save Mart Center.
"Our men are really excited," Fresno State head coach Scott Winsor said. "We're excited as a coaching staff because we have a great group of guys ready to compete."
The opportunity is there for the men to have a special season with the group of guys that has been assembled by the coaching staff. There is enough talent that the staff is very optimistic about what could happen this season.
"There is some excitement on the guys side, and I think if we can stay healthy throughout the season - even though we are outnumbered (by other teams) - we have a number of guys that can do some damage in the conference," Winsor said.
On the women's side, they were given a few days to rest after the Indoor Mountain West Championships, but are now ready to get back after it in the outdoor season.
"I think we get better as we move to the outdoor season on the women's side," Winsor said. "I think we are just a better team outdoors with more events that are better for us. We are just very excited going to the outdoor season."
Admission and parking are free on Saturday at Fresno State and at Veteran's Memorial Stadium.
