HONOLULU—The University of Hawai’i track and field team will have a quick turnaround with its second meet in as many weeks as they’ll compete in the Cardinal Classic at Stanford University on Saturday.
Initially, the Rainbow Wahine were set to travel to another meet in San Francisco, California. Still, due to the facility issues, an audible was called last weekend, followed by a decision early in the week to send UH elsewhere.
The ‘Bows are coming off a promising meet to start the outdoor schedule from a week ago in the Ben Brown Invitational. UH battled wet and cold conditions to log personal records in field events. At the same time, sophomore high jumper Lilian Turban and sophomore long jumper Caitlin Simmons picked up first-place finishes to lead the way over the two-day event.
The Cardinal Classic has top-tier programs, including Stanford, California, BYU, and San Jose State. The meet will also include Big West foe UC Davis throughout the one-day event.
Field events will kick start the day at 6:30 a.m. HT with the women’s long jump, followed by the pole vault and javelin throw. The women’s shot put will round out field events at 1:45 p.m. HT. Regarding track events, the 4 x 100m will get the day going at 9 a.m. HT. With the exception of the other relay schedule for 3:45 p.m. HT, UH will emphasize the 100m and 200m events; both are scheduled for the middle of the day.
