DURHAM, N.C. – In its final weekend before the ACC Outdoor Track and Field Championships, Duke will make the short trip to North Carolina's Belk Track in Chapel Hill, N.C., to compete in the 2013 Joe Hilton Invitational April 13.  Over 30 Blue Devils from all event areas will compete in the one day meet.

Several multi-event athletes will use the meet to do some fine tuning in several individual components including the men’s discus.  Redshirt junior Curtis Beach, sophomore Ian Rock and freshman Robert Rohner will join throwers, senior Austin Gamble and sophomore Stephen Boals, in the event.  Beach will also compete in the 200 meters with senior Marcus Wright while Rock races in the 110m hurdles and Rohner is signed up for the men’s pole vault with junior Justin Amezquita.

On the women’s side, juniors Miray Seward and Hannah Goranson along with sophomores Karli Johonnot and Baily Murphy will race in the women’s 100m hurdles.  Seward and Johonnot will remain on the track to compete in the 200m later in the afternoon, while Murphy will run the third leg of the women’s 4x100m relay.

Murphy, senior LaCresha Styles and sophomores Elizabeth Kerpon and Lauren Hansson will attempt to break the 4x100m relay school record for the third time this season.  The quartet was the first team in school history to break 46 seconds last weekend at the Duke Invitational.  Kerpon and Hansson will be joined by sophomore Alexis Roper in the open 400m later in the afternoon.   

In the middle distance events, sophomore Abby Farley will race in the women’s 800m, while Jon Michael Hilsheimer and Matthew Marriott will compete in the men’s race. 

Off the track, freshman Megan Clark and junior Emily Mattoon will participate in women’s pole vault Saturday afternoon.  Both women have made their mark on Duke’s record books ranking third and fourth, respectively, on Duke’s all-time list. 

In the throwing events, redshirt sophomore Kyler Shumway and freshman Michael Foley will compete in the men’s hammer throw.  Foley, who has only competed in two meets in his Duke career, broke the school record last weekend by earning a mark of 189-4 (57.72) on his fifth attempt. 

On the women’s side, redshirt junior Michelle Anumba will participate in the women’s shot put.  The Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., native looks to improve on her season-best mark of 54-11.50 (16.75) that she earned last weekend.  Junior Erica Brand will wrap up the Blue Devils on the field in the women’s discus. 

A complete list of Duke participants is below and complete recap of the action will be available at www.GoDuke.com at the end of the competition.
