Piedmont Chosen as USA South Women's Track & Field Favorite

For the first time in USA South Athletic Conference history, the League will sponsor a women's track & field championship. Piedmont College, under the direction of Head Coach Jeff Jenkins, was picked to win the Conference's 2019 women's track & field title in the preseason coaches poll. The Lions received six of ten first-place votes and 77 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 72 points and three first place votes while Methodist University was third with 62 points. Rounding out the top-four of the rankings was Covenant College who accumulated 59 points and the final first place vote.

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.
