"This spring we are hoping to continue the momentum from last spring and this past fall," head coach Adam Ward said. "Last track season and this past cross country season were great for our programs. This schedule should prepare us well for the type of competition we will face later at conference and trying to qualify for the NCAAs later in May."
Augusta University begins its sixth season of outdoor track and field after introducing the programs for the 2013 season.
