Feb. 23, 2010

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) -- The 2010 Atlantic Coast Conference Men's & Women's Indoor Track & Field Championship will get underway Thursday, February 25 at Rector Field House on the Virginia Tech campus. Live coverage from the three-day event in Blacksburg will be carried on theACC.com on Friday and Saturday.

Virginia Tech will be playing host to the championship for the third time since joining the league in 2004. Host institutions have won the men's championship a total of seven times, but none have accomplished the feat since Maryland in 1979. North Carolina is the only women's team to win the league title on its campus (2003).

In addition to seeking a conference title, ACC student-athletes will be in search of either provisional or automatic qualifying times in hopes of earning a berth to the 2010 NCAA championships.

Live coverage can be seen at theACC.com on Friday beginning at 3 p.m. and on Saturday beginning at 12 p.m. In addition, live results can be found by visiting the official championship website: http://www.theacc.com/championships/10-itf-championship.html.
