SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Santa Clara track & field finishes up its regular season on Saturday at the Portland Twilight and Oxy Invitational. The Broncos, racing for the fifth time in as many weeks, are slotted for three events at Eldon Fix Track in Portland and eight events at Bill Henry Track in Los Angeles.
"We really like going to Oxy," associate head coach Pete Cushman said. "It's a fast track, the fields are always very strong and we've had a good history there with great performances. This will be a last opportunity for a lot of our athletes and we want to make the most of it. If we want anyone joining Joey at prelims, we will need to do it this weekend."
