MADISON, Wis. -- Five home meets highlight the Wisconsin women's track and field team's 2013 schedule, which was announced Wednesday by head coach Jim Stintzi.

UW will host four meets during the indoor season. The Badger Track Classic opens things for the Badgers on Jan. 12, with the annual Wisconsin Elite Invitational the following weekend, Jan. 18-19.

In addition to their four home events, the Badgers will take part in three of the nation's top indoor meets in February. That stretch begins with the Meyo Invitational in South Bend, Ind., on Feb. 1-2, followed a week later by the Husky Classic in Seattle, Wash.

The Red & White Open is set for Feb. 15 and serves as UW's final tune-up for the Big Ten indoor championships, which take place the following week at a neutral site, the Spire Institute in Geneva, Ohio, Feb. 22-23.

A final opportunity to qualify for national championship competition follows a week later, as the Badgers host the Wisconsin NCAA Qualifier on March 1. The 2012 NCAA Indoor Championships are set for March 8-9 in Fayetteville, Ark.

UW will begin the outdoor season by traveling to California for eight of its first 13 meets. These meets include the prestigious Mt. SAC Relays, April 18-20, and the Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational on April 28.

UW then hosts the annual Wisconsin Twilight Invitational on May 4 before competing in the Big Ten Outdoor Championships in Columbus, Ohio. The three-day competition is set for May 10-12.
