BOULDER - The University of Colorado track & field team will host the inaugural Jerry Quiller Classic, March 15-16, at Potts Field.

The meet, which had previously been the Potts Outdoor Invitational, has been named in honor of the former CU track and field and cross country coach Jerry Quiller, who passed away in 2012 after losing a battle against multiple myeloma.

Quiller served as the head coach for the Buffs from 1985-1995. In that time, he coached the Buffs to three Big Eight Conference Cross Country titles and made a dozen (men and women) appearances at the NCAA Championships. He was named the league's coach of the year five times in that span and directed 19 All-Americans (13 men and six women), including Olympians Adam Goucher and Alan Culpepper. In 1994, CU's men placed second and the women were fourth at nationals, earning him national coach of the year accolades.

Colorado will compete against several Front Range schools this weekend. Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State, Air Force, Metro State, Northern Colorado and UC-Colorado Springs, along with South Dakota School of Mines will make up the majority of competitors with CU, but there will be several other athletes competing unattached or as a member of a club. The invitational is a non-team scoring meet.

The hammer throw and javelin will be the only events contested on Friday; starting at 2 p.m. Saturday's events will start at 11 a.m. and will wrap up around 3:45 p.m.

The Jerry Quiller Classic is the first of two meets CU will host this spring. The Buffs will also host the CU Invitational April 12-13. Both take place at Potts Field on 30th and Colorado. Admission is free. The forecast for Friday is mostly sunny with a high of 70 degrees and Saturday has a high of 56 degrees and a 30 percent chance of rain (as of Thursday afternoon).
