Promotions Set For LSU Invitational Meet
BATON ROUGE – New Orleans-based band TheBoldPointe will bring a piece of JazzFest to the Bernie Moore Track Stadium with a live performance from 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. CT, and one lucky fan will be drawn as the winner of a $500 Academy Sports & Outdoors gift card to highlight the promotions on offer for Saturday’s LSU Invitational meet.
LSU hosts many of the best programs with Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, Miami and Texas A&M scheduled to compete beginning at 9 a.m. in the field events and 11:30 a.m. on the track.
The winner of the $500 Academy Sports & Outdoors gift card will be drawn at approximately 3:15 p.m. following Senior Day recognitions on the infield. Fans have entered their names for the drawing at each of the first two home meets this outdoor season, and will have one final opportunity to do so on Saturday by visiting the Fan Zone table on the main concourse of the Bernie Moore Track Stadium.
