Spring Hill College’s track and field teams are nearing the conclusion of a pandemic-altered 2021 season.

The men’s and women’s teams will conclude its season with a pair of meets in April -- the University of Mobile Invitational on April 17 in Gulf Shores; and the Mississippi College Twilight Meet on April 23 in Clinton, Mississippi.

This track season was compressed following the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association decision to eliminate post-season tournaments and meets because of the continuing threat of COVID-19.

SHC track, coached by Craig McVey, began competition in the spring of 2013.

The Badger men last competed April 2 and 3 at the Southern Mississippi (USM) Invitational. Freshman John Abate of Orange Park, Florida, set a new school record in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 15.59 to surpass Maurice Abdur-Rahim's 2013 mark of 15.92.
