Edinboro will be competing in its lone home meet of the year on Saturday as they host the Lake Erie Storm for the Rag Relays.

The Rag Relays are held annually in the fall at Edinboro, and consist of three-member teams with each member running four 1,500m legs.  All times are accumulated and added together to create the final finishing time. This will be the first year of the event under new head coach Rick Hammer.

The Fighting Scots are coming off a strong showing at the Wisconsin-Parkside Midwest Open, in which Dustin Thomas was the top finisher for the Fighting Scots.

Last year, the top trio on the men's side in the Rag Relays consisted of returning seniors Bryan Deibel and Dylan Stevens.
