"This is our second meet of the season, and we are expecting to see a good performance from our teams," Taylor said.

Next up after this weekend, the ASU teams will participate in Darton College's Cavalier Classic on Sept. 17 and the Morehouse College Invite on Sept. 24. The ASU women will defend their championship title in November at the annual SIAC Championships.
