The Liberty men's track and field team, shown here celebrating its 2006 indoor conference team title, is shooting for its 10th-straight championship.

Fans of the Liberty men's and women's track and field teams can follow the Flames' progress at Saturday and Sunday's Big South Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships through live results and video streaming, both of which will be available through the conference website. 

The women's pentathlon 60-meter hurdles will kick off the two-day meet Saturday at 8:30 a.m. (A full meet schedule may be accessed here.) As soon as action gets underway, results will be posted here as events are completed. 

Both days of competition at Clemson will be video streamed through the Big South EDGE, for a cost of $3.95 per day. More information on this feature is available here

The Liberty men's track and field team has won every Big South indoor team championship since the conference meet was first held in 1998. Another title this year would mark number 10 in a row for the Flames and would be the 50th Big South championship garnered by the Liberty men's and women's track and cross country program as a whole. 

Juniors Jon Hart (Wyomissing, Pa.) and Josh McDougal (Peru, N.Y.) headline this year's men's track and field team, as the duo has combined to capture the past three Big South Men's Indoor Track Athlete of the Week honors. 

Hart set a school weight throw record at last Friday's Liberty Quad and provisionally qualified for the national meet. Meanwhile, McDougal has set a Tolsma Indoor Track Center record at 3,000 meters and a school and Big South mark at 5,000 meters already this season, earning provisional national qualification in both events. Additionally, he was last season's Men's Outstanding Track Performer at the indoor conference meet. 

On the women's side, senior Arlene Zelinskas (Dayton, Ohio) has been enjoying a record-breaking campaign thus far. She will attempt to help the Lady Flames unseat Coastal Carolina, the defending Big South champion. 

The Women's Outstanding Track Performer at the 2006 Big South Indoor Track and Field Championships, Zelinskas has set school records in the 55-meter hurdles, 60-meter hurdles and the pentathlon this season. She also eclipsed the existing Big South Conference records in the latter two disciplines, although her 60-meter hurdle mark has since been bettered by Coastal Carolina's LeAuna Sistrunk.
