For the first time since 1986, the USA South Athletic Conference will sponsor a men's track & field championship. Piedmont College, under the direction of Head Coach Jeff Jenkins, was picked to win the Conference's 2019 men's track & field title in the preseason coaches poll. The Lions received six of seven first-place votes and 36 points as head coaches do not vote for their own teams in the balloting for the USA South preseason poll.
Berea College ranked second in the poll with 30 points and the remaining first place vote while Methodist University placed third with 26 points to round out the top-three.
The 2019 USA South Men's & Women's Track and Field Championship will take place April 18-19 on the campus of Berea College in Berea, Kentucky.
