WEST POINT, N.Y. – Army’s second postseason meet of the outdoor track and field season is slated for this weekend at Princeton University as the Tigers will serve as hosts of the ECAC and IC4A Championships. The Black Knights will travel 27 qualifiers for 16 individual events on top of five relays throughout the three-day regional meet at Weaver Stadium. Army’s first event will be Friday evening at 5:30 p.m., as a trio of women’s discus throwers are scheduled to compete.

Lancer Timing will provide event-by-event results throughout the weekend at its website,

Army last competed at the Patriot League Championships hosted by Lehigh last weekend. The Black Knight men claimed runner-up honors while the women finished sixth. Army combined for nine event titles, highlighted by senior Kyler Martin’s sweep of the hurdles en route to being named the men’s Track Performer of the Meet. Martin is scheduled to compete in both the 110-meter and 400-meters this weekend at the IC4As.

Other individual conference champions vying to add more accolades to their résumés are McKenzie Majchrzak (high jump), Mark Castelli (steeplechase), Shane Jones (shot put) and Clyde Wilson (800m). At last season’s ECAC, IC4A meet, distance specialist Lisa Junta highlighted the show by becoming Army’s first ECAC track champion by winning the 10,000-meter run.

Army will also look to add more names to its list of NCAA First Round qualifiers at this weekend’s competition. Six Black Knights rank within the top 48 in the East Region in seven events entering the ECAC and IC4A Championships. Senior Scott Geary leads the charge with a pair of qualifying marks, ranking 46th in the discus and 48th in the hammer. This season’s NCAA East Regional is scheduled for May 23-25 at North Carolina A&T in Greensboro, N.C.
