Princeton Weather

From the top row of the bleachers at Princeton's Weaver Track & Field Stadium, LibertyFlames.com will provide live blog coverage of all three days of the 2012 IC4A/ECAC Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships, weather permitting.

I write "weather permitting" due to the lack of an enclosed press box at this facility. If we get any prolonged rain, I will have to discontinue the blog until it is safe to resume using my laptop computer.

Today will be a full day of action for the Flames and Lady Flames, with 11 Liberty athletes in action during approximately 10 hours of competition.

The first part of the day will feature Christina Mitchell beginning defense of her ECAC heptathlon title and Big South champion Jacob DeValve competing in the IC4A decathlon.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m., the trio of Mychelle Cumings, Jennifer Nicholson and Jocelyn Williams will compete in the ECAC discus.

Distance races will take over the track at 7 p.m., and Liberty's Khristina Kanagy, Pedro Carela, Josh MacDonald, Caleb Edmonds, David Ricksecker and Ngetich Kipchirchir are all slated to compete.

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!
