ANNAPOLIS, Md. – With eight-straight Indoor Star Meets victories under its belt, the Navy women’s track & field squad shoot for its ninth-straight against Army in the N-Star meet on Saturday at Wesley A. Brown Field House. The meet is schedule to begin at 2:30 p.m., which is 30 minutes after the men’s competition.

Navy has won eight-straight Indoor N-Stars (2006-13) and extended its indoor series lead to 14-12-1. Navy has swept the indoor/outdoor series in women's track and field in each of the last five seasons and will have the opportunity to continue the sweep streak on Saturday.

Navy defeated Army, 97-84 at last season’s indoor meet. The Mids placed first in eight events and took the top-two spots in long jump, triple jump, shot put and weight throw. Returning for Navy to defend their first-place finishes from last year will be Teronda Brown (shot put), Maressa Guynn (weight throw), Sarah Barnum (triple jump), Ashley Welker (800m).

Head coach Carla Criste is 13-7-1 against Army in indoor track and 27-14-1 overall. Criste has led the Mids during a streak of 10-straight wins (combined indoor and outdoor) and will look to make it six-straight season sweeps in 2014.

On Jan. 18, Navy women's track & field totaled 111 points for a second-place finish at the Terrapin Invitational. Senior Maressa Guynn (Uniontown, Pa.) recorded the Mids first ECAC-qualifying performance in the weight throw. Following her ECAC-qualifying throw, Guynn was named Patriot League Field Athlete of the Week.

Navy will next host the Multi-Madness meet on Tuesday, February 11 at 4 p.m. in the Wesley A. Brown Field House.
