Marquette track & field is less than a month away from the start of its indoor season.
Here are the five players from each team to keep your eye on:
Senior sprinter Brown-Carr has had a storied career at Marquette. The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native holds the school record in the 400m dash and played a crucial role in the 4x400m relay team’s Big East Title in 2022.
Sprinter Braden is coming into her junior season after an All-Big East sophomore outdoor season. She recorded a 55.24 seconds in the 400m, which gave her both all-conference honors and the No. 5 400m time in program history. The Villa Park, Illinois native also holds the No. 5 all-time 300m time (40.76 seconds) and No. 7 all-time 500m time (1:16:63) at Marquette.
