DETROIT, Mich. -- The latest edition of women's indoor track & field begins Saturday (Dec. 8) at the University of Findlay's Oiler Open. Led by head coach LaCema Womack, the Mustangs' women's indoor team is primed for a season of record-breaking performances with a couple of talented freshman taking their marks.
Mercedesz Brown (Redford, Mich./Thurston) is one of the upstart freshmen Womack is hoping makes a splash as she enters her first season of intercollegiate indoor track. Brown, a former soccer standout, will enter 60m dash and 200m dash at Saturday's Oiler Open.
"Mercedesz will be entering the season on the sprints side with her past high school soccer speed experience accompanying the base training she received during cross country season. Based on her dedication toward training and practice, I am confident this new experience will pay off with competitive times for this meet and many to follow," said Womack of Brown's ability.
Another up-and-coming talent for the Mustangs is fellow freshman Devin Willis (Flint, Mich./Carman Ainsworth). The former Flint area star enters her first season of college track & field at the Oiler Open. Willis will enter the 300m event.
A full recap of Saturday's event will be available once results are posted by the host University of Findlay.
