Posted on February 10th, 2020 by

SAINT PETER, Minn. – Gustavus track and field junior Taylor Rooney (Jr., Andover, Minn.) is set to compete in the 60m hurdles at the United States of America Track & Field (USATF) Championships at Albuquerque, N.M. on Friday. Rooney is the first Gustavus athlete to compete at the USATF Indoor Championships. He is also the first Gustie to compete at a U.S. Championship event since Lisa Brown competed in the javelin at the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials.

Rooney will be competing against some of the top athletes in the world, including Jarret Eaton who finished second in the world during the 2018 World Championships, and Daniel Roberts who is represented by NIKE and took first place at last year’s USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in the 110m hurdles.

You will be able to watch a replay of Rooney’s race on NBCSN Friday night at 8:30 p.m. CST or watch here. If Rooney places high enough on Friday, he will compete at 3 p.m. Saturday, which will be televised on NBC.

This post will be updated if there becomes an option to watch Rooney’s Friday race live.
