Senior Kymmalett Ross will open the meet for the  Govs, serving as Austin Peay State University’s lone Thursday competitor; she will run the open 200m dash event to kick off the collegiate portion of the track schedule, 2:00pm (ET)

Junior Myiah Johnson opens a busy Friday for APSU, with her 100m hurdles effort slated to begin at 12:15pm. The field events get started at 1:00pm, with junior Chancis Jones‘ nod in the long jump invitational—the Chattanooga native is one of 15 athletes to gain admittance to the invite field.

The Govs close Friday with an appearance from junior Kaylnn Pitts—she ends APSU’s Friday at 5:00pm with a long jump attempt, and will be the Govs lone Saturday competitor in the triple jump, slated to begin at 4:00pm.
