ATLANTA, Ga. - For the first time in history, the ASUN Conference Indoor Track & Field Championship will feature a broadcast element as the league office has partnered with Liberty University and its on-campus broadcast studio to air a Championship Studio Recap Show on ESPN+. The live recap show is set for Saturday, Feb. 23rd at 7 PM ET once the conference meet concludes.
Hosted by Mike Hagen and Todd Patulski, the ASUN Indoor Championship Studio Recap on ESPN+ will feature footage from throughout the championship including interviews from trophy winners and the league's Championship's Most Valuable Performers. The hour-long studio recap expands the league's ESPN championship coverage to a 12th sport and is the first-ever ASUN Track & Field broadcast on the ESPN family of networks.
The ASUN Conference Indoor Track & Field Championship enters its 14th year of competition and its second-straight season at Liberty's Indoor Track & Field Complex. Last season, Jacksonville captured the women's title for the 12th time in program history, while Kennesaw State earned its seventh-straight conference trophy on the men's side.

Friday's action begins at 9:30 AM ET with the men's heptathlon and concludes on Saturday at 5:30 PM ET with the awards presentation.
The ASUN's partnership with ESPN first began in 1989 with the airing of the league's Men's Basketball Final and has grown exponentially through the conference's ESPN On-Campus Initiative, which began in the fall of 2012. Since its inception, ESPN has collaborated with the ASUN to adopt the conference-wide on-campus production model.
