FORT WORTH, Texas
– The TCU men’s and women’s track and field teams will get a jump on the 2017 season as they open the indoor campaign at the Reveille Invitational in College Station on Saturday, Dec. 10.

Action at the Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. The Horned Frogs will compete against Houston and Texas A&M.

The Return
Senior Jalen Miller, who took home third in the 60 meters at the 2015 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships, will make his return to the track after sitting out last year due to injury. Miller, competing for Ole Miss at the time, clocked in at 6.57 in the 60-meter finals in a race that gave TCU’s Ronnie Baker his first of two gold medals in the 60.

Relay Staple
With the return of two First-Team All-Americans in senior Raymond Bozmans and sophomore Darrion Flowers, TCU will look to keep the relays a Horned Frog tradition this year. The additions of Miller, junior transfer Emeilo Ferguson, and freshmen Jostyn Andrews and Ryan Champlin have added solid depth to an already strong sprinting squad.

She Went The Distance
Sophomore Brenley Goertzen emerged as one of the best distance runners in the Big 12 throughout the 2016 cross country season. She earned bronze at the conference championships behind a time of 20:35.1. Goertzen then placed sixth at regionals, becoming the first Frog since 2012 to earn a bid to the NCAA Championships.

Leap Frog
Junior Scotty Newton will lead the way in jumps on the men’s side. He earned a bid to nationals for the second-consecutive season in the triple jump last year and took home silver in the triple jump at the Big 12 Indoor Championships.

Keep ‘Em Coming
TCU has crowned an NCAA champion in each of the last four years:
* 2016: Ronnie Baker (60 meters)
* 2015: Ronnie Baker (60 meters)
* 2014: Lorraine Ugen (long jump)
* 2013: Charles Silmon (100 meters), Lorraine Ugen (long jump)
* Only one other school in the Big 12 has claimed gold in each year since 2013 (Texas).
