    CARBONDALE, Ill. - The Saluki track & field team will make their way to Cape Girardeau, Mo., this Friday and Saturday for the Joey Haines Invitational.

    Southern Illinois will be joined by four other schools at the Stuber Track Complex. Though small, the field will include top-level competition from Memphis and host Southeast Missouri State. Also at the meet will be Arkansas State and Murray State.

    The meet is scheduled to get underway on Friday at 3:30 p.m. with the men's and women's hammer throw. The meet will continue Saturday morning, as the women's long jump kicks off the action at 10 a.m. Running events begin at 11:30 a.m. with the women's 5000 meter run.

    The Saluki women's team won last year's Joey Haines Invitational by scoring 171.5 points, easily defeating second place Lincoln (Mo.), which scored 86. For the men, they will be looking to improve on last year's second place finish, when they fell to Memphis by a slim 8.5 point margin.
