While her staff in the NEC sports services department continued preparation for the upcoming fall championship season, assistant commissioner Michelle Boone was looking ahead to winter.
Boone, who is in her fourth academic year of service, was finalizing plans for the 2012 Northeast Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships.
Boone announced that the NEC has reached an agreement with the Prince George’s County Sports & Learning Center that will bring the annual event back to the Maryland-based facility for the 12th year running. The 34-event (17 men, 17 women) meet will unfold on February 11 & 12, 2012 at the top-tier venue in Landover, MD.
“The PG County Sports & Learning Center has provided a first-class championship site for our track & field student-athletes for over a decade now and we are pleased to work with them on yet another NEC event,” said Boone. “The facility has plenty of space to sufficiently accommodate our 700-plus competitors and a great Mondo surface.”
The two-day meet schedule will begin approximately 9:30 am on Saturday, February 11 and conclude on Sunday, February 12 with the final event – the women’s 4x400m relay – going off at 4:10 pm.
Single-day admission for adults will be $10.00 with a two-day pass available for the discounted rate of $15.00. All tickets will be sold at the door and NEC students will be admitted free upon presenting a valid Student ID card.
Central Connecticut is the defending men’s team champion and Long island has taken the last two women’s team titles.Post-meet Interviews from the 2011 NEC Indoor Track & Field Championships…
