The Horizon League announced their preseason poll for indoor track and field earlier today and Robert Morris was placed sixth with 75 total votes.

Youngstown State is the overwhelming favorite in the conference, with 10 of the possible 11 first-place votes, with Milwaukee getting one.

Youngstown State was host to the first meet of the season in the YSU Icebreaker at the WATTS as fifth-year weight thrower Keturah Hunter, the reigning conference champion, won the individual championship in the event with a toss of 18.65 meters (61’2.25″) and set a meet record and personal best.

The Colonials’ next meet will be at the Penn State Challenge on January 15.
