At some Track and Field events, there can be 10 minute delays between heats, 15-20 minutes between events. This was not the case with Austin Peay’s meet. Heats were constantly going. Next events were quickly setup. Even hurdles, normally the longest to setup was done quickly and efficiently. The result was a meet with something constantly going on without any real down times.

“I believe this year was one of the better run meets that we have done” said Molnar. “I want to give congratulations and thanks to the members of the APSU Track and Field team that came out to help today along with all the other volunteers. Job well done.”
