A comment from Alabama track and field head coach Dan Waters on this weekend's competition:
"The Indiana Relays will be a good test for our team. It's our first road trip of the season and I am hoping our team will deal with it well. This is a large meet with a lot of competitors, so that will be different from our first two meets as well. I like the closeness of our team at this point. We have a lot of new people on our team; so much of the group is going through the same process together. We've improved over the first couple of meets and I hope to see more improvement this weekend."
