FORT WORTH, Texas -- The TCU men's and women's track and field teams will compete in their second outdoor meet of the season beginning Thursday at the prestigious Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays at the University of Texas.

"It's the biggest outdoor meet in the country this week and there will be a big fan base there so we want to go there and run well," TCU track and field coach Darryl Anderson said.

The Frogs hosted the TCU Invitational last week to open the outdoor season and Megan Smith and Cameron Tabor set new school records in the discus (181-00) and hammer throw (187-6), respectively.

"From a confidence standpoint we had some athletes get regional qualifying marks out of the way," Anderson said. "It was huge. To break the ice on the outdoor season and get ourselves going was good."

Decathlon and heptathlon events began Wednesday and continue Thursday. Field events begin Thursday at 12:30 p.m. with the women's hammer, while running events begin at 4:30 p.m. with the preliminaries of the women's 400 hurdles.

"This is one of the meets that's important to us because it's in our home state," Anderson said.

The evening session begins at 7 p.m.
