From a tent overlooking the southwest corner of Drake Stadium, LibertyFlames.com will provide live blog coverage of the first two days of the 2011 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

Liberty's Elliot Galeone and Kolby Shepherd will both be in action today in steamy Des Moines. Galeone will throw the javelin at 4:05 p.m. Eastern and Shepherd will pole vault at 6:35 this evening.

With the javelin competition area located outside of Drake Stadium, I will leave my computer to watch Galeone compete. Then, I will return to recap his performance and cover Shepherd's progress in the pole vault.

While I am on site at the javelin, I plan to post periodic updates via the Liberty Flames Twitter account (twitter.com/libertyflames).

I will again be using the interactive CoveritLive blog interface. This format allows readers to submit comments and questions throughout the day, as you follow your favorite Flames and Lady Flames.

Without further ado, go Liberty!
