The Bucs were picked third overall in the conference's preseason poll as voted on by the conference's head coaches. CSU was picked to finish behind Campbell and Hampton among the top three in the rankings.
CSU returns to a familiar venue for the Buccaneers. Charleston Southern was at the Liberty Elite Invitational on February 2nd for the one-day event.
The Flames added the state-of-the-art indoor track facility to its list of numerous new athletics complexes in recent years when the Liberty Indoor Track Complex opened in January 2017. The track itself is the facility's most dynamic feature and one of only a handful of indoor tracks in the U.S. to offer a six-lane, 200-meter, hydraulically banked oval.
The two-day event is set to start on Friday, February 15, with the first four events of the Heptathlon beginning with the 60m dash at 10:15 a.m. The field events from the first day start with the pole vault at 1 p.m., while the track events start with the mile run at 2:20 p.m.
