Track and Field:

In its first meet of the 2012-13 indoor track and field season, the DePaul Blue Demons were led by a young core that included a assembly of freshman along with some Blue and Gold Invitational veterans.

Among some of the more notable performances on the women’s side at the Notre Dame-hosted event was University Park native and freshman Tayler Whittler, who picked up BIG EAST Conference qualifying times in her collegiate debut when she ran a second-place time of 25.14 in the 200-meter dash. Whittler also notched a 7.83-second, fifth-place time in the 60-meter. Click Here for the full story.
