Texas will lead a loaded field into Birmingham, Alabama this weekend for the Auburn Indoor Invitational Indoor Track and Field Meet.

The No. 4 ranked Longhorns will face other top 10 teams, with No. 5 Clemson, No. 6 UCF and No. 9 Florida State competing. Alongside those teams are more high profile programs such as Auburn, Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Samford and Tennessee.

This will be the second competition for Texas this season following the Leonard Hilton Invitational in Houston last weekend. Sophomore Marielle Hall took first place in the mile and was on Texas’ distance medley with Morgan Snow, Julie Amthor and Katie Hoaldridge. Texas also won the 4×400 relay along with having dual-winners in the high jump with Shanay Briscoe and Victoria Lucas each reaching 1.76 meters.

The meet will begin with the field events at 11 a.m., continue with the running events with the 60-meter prelims at 12 p.m., and will conclude with the 4×400-meter relay at 6:40 p.m.
