TAMPA - The Bulls will start their outdoor season in front of familiar faces at Friday's USF Open.

USF's competition will include Nova Southeastern, Central Michigan, Florida Southern, Florida Memorial, Florida Tech, Warner, Edward Waters, St. Leo, Tampa, Webber and Penn State-Behrend. Action begins with the field events at 11 a.m.

"It's always nice for the kids to be able to compete in front of the home crowd and get out there on their home track. They always compete very well at home," USF head coach Warren Bye said.

The Bulls made program history the last time out on the track when they posted USF's best-ever finishes at the Big East Indoor Track & Field Championships. The USF men finished third and the women's squad placed fourth Feb. 17 in Geneva, Ohio.

"It's a good confidence boost for the kids coming into the outdoor season," Bye said.
