The Bucs are less than a month away from the Big South Outdoor Track & Field Championships that will be held at CSU on May 10-12.

Saturday's meet continues CSU's training schedule as the Bucs continue to get ready for the conference postseason. CSU will have one final outdoor meet on April 22 with the Bucs traveling to Columbia, S.C. for the University of South Carolina Invitational.

CSU closed out last weekend's UNF Invite with Jacob Moore, Danielle Burnett, Milan Williams, and the women's 4x100 'A' team all finishing on the podium at Hodges Stadium.

Moore earned his way onto the podium with a strong throw in the men's hammer throw event to finish second overall in the field. Moore's distance of 51.32m was the longest throw in round one. He finished behind Fairleigh Dickinson's Nicholas Todaro to place second in the event.

Burnett was eight-hundredths of a second from the crown in the women's 400m dash as the CSU senior was narrowly edged at the line by Florida A&M's Mia Lewis. Burnett finished second overall on the day to lead the Bucs in the event.

Williams finished on the podium in the women's hammer throw event. The freshman thrower reached 51.92m on her second throw of the event to finish third overall in the field.

The women's 4x100m relay 'A' team of Robinson, Pilgrim, Davis, and Coleman finished third overall in the event with a time of 46.14.

Frankie Thomas nearly joined them on the podium in the men's high jump, finishing fourth overall in the event. The freshman reached 2.00m for the second time in the 2017 season to tie with Bethune-Cookman's Kelton Williams.
