DAVIS, Calif. —
The UC Davis men’s and women’s track and field squads will begin their 2018 campaign at home on Jan. 27 as the Aggies host a high school indoor state qualifier, and will conclude, at the latest, on Jun. 9 at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore., as officially announced by the track and field coaching staff. In between those events, UC Davis will have another home meet on the second week of April, a few meets in Southern California, and one travel trip to Tempe, Ariz., to highlight the 2018 schedule.

UC Davis will kick-off its 2018 slate by hosting a high school indoor state qualifier competition on Jan. 27, which will be an open competition for both college student-athletes and unattached individuals.

On month later (Feb. 22-23), the Aggies will attend the 33rd Chico State Multi-Event Classic in Chico, Calif. For the following weekend, both squads will make the trek to Berkeley, Calif., for the Cal Opener on Mar. 3.

After the Cal Opener, the UC Davis squads will reunite as they stay at home to host the Aggie Open on Mar. 10, before being divided up on the weekend of Mar. 16-17. On those dates, some of the athletes from each squad will stay local to participate in the Hornet Invitational at Sacramento State, while the remainder of the Aggies will be on the road as they travel to Los Angeles, Calif., for USC’s Trojan Invitational.

The UC Davis track and field team anticipates a packed weekend from Mar. 30 to Apr. 1 as the squads are dispersed amongst four different events, two of which will take place in Northern California locations, while the other two will be taking place in Southern California locations. For the Northern California competitions, the student-athletes will either participate in the San Francisco State Distance Carnival, or the Sanford Invitational, the only event that weekend overlapping into the first day of April. For the Southern California competitions, the rest of the student-athletes will either be competing in Cal State Fullerton’s Titan Invitational, or against UCLA.

On Apr. 6-7, the Aggies will make their first trip outside of California this season to visit Arizona State’s campus for the Sun Angel Classic before staying at home the next weekend to host the Woody Wilson Classic on Apr. 13-14.

The Aggies will then prepare for another busy week of competition as they head to Azusa Pacific during the week (Apr. 18-20), where multis competition will take place during the first two days of this event, and on the last day of this event, Azusa Pacific will host the Brian Clay Invitational. Overlapping with the Brian Clay Invitational will be the first day of the Beach Relays, which will be hosted by Long Beach State on Apr. 20-21.

On Apr. 27, the UC Davis squads will head over to Sacramento State’s track to compete in the annual Causeway Classic dual track and field meet. Last year at Causeway Classic, the UC Davis women’s squad secured an 110-81 win over Sacramento State, while the UC Davis men’s squad lost the meet by a final of 102-89.

Entering into the month of May, the UC Davis track and field teams will go to Northridge, Calif., to compete in the Big West Multi Championships, starting on May 4, and concluding on May 5. One week later (May 11-12), the Aggies will head back to CSUN to compete in the Big West Track and Field Championships.

Entering into post-season competition, both squads will have a chance to make yet another trip over the Causeway to participate in the Division I NCAA West Preliminary Round, which will start on May 24, and end on May 26. Following that, the NCAA Outdoor Championships this year will cover the dates of Jun. 6-9, and will be held at the Hayward field in Eugene, Ore.
