MINNEAPOLIS – Just a week after closing out the indoor season at the NCAA championships, the Minnesota men’s track and field team returns to action this weekend for the start of the 2013 outdoor season.
The Gophers will bring a full squad of 34 competitors to the Baldy Castillo Invitational in Tempe, Ariz., this weekend. Arizona State hosts the Friday-Saturday meet with Texas A&M and Kansas State also on deck to compete.
Arizona State will provide live stats and a running blog (Saturday only) on TheSunDevils.com. Gophersports.com will have updates following each day of competition.
