The Northern Arizona track and field program will host the Friday Night Duals meet on Friday starting at 3 p.m. in the Walkup Skydome to start the first of four meets that the Lumberjacks will host during the 2019 indoor season.
All Lumberjacks home meets this season will be free to attend.
Teams scheduled to compete on the men's side include Arizona, Arizona State, Bloomsburg University, Grand Canyon University, Southern Utah and UCLA.
Women's teams will be comprised of Arizona, Arizona State, Bloomsburg University, Cal St. Los Angeles, CSU Bakersfield, Grand Canyon University, Southern Utah, UCLA and UNLV.
Northern Arizona enters the weekend having already competed in one meet this season. In early December, a small selection of sprinters and distance runners made the trip to Bozeman, Montana, for the Bobcat Preview hosted by Big Sky Conference opponent Montana State.
A few notable events for the Lumberjacks during that meet included the women's relay team comprised of Clarissa Maxey, Jasmine Malone, Miracle Onyemaobi and Helena McLeod dominating the 4x400-meter relay finals to finish in first place on a time of 3:52.90.
"It is important that we do not put too much pressure on timing," Malone said. "Instead, we would rather focus on our efforts and performances. I'm hoping all of us as a team can show that we are ready."
Friday Night Duals will be the first official competition that the throwers event groups will participate in for the 2019 indoor season.
