Derek Seddon will start of Knoxville portion of the Drake Relays this afternoon at three with the discus. Seddon has won nearly every meet this season and continues to set personal marks. His most recent personal record was 166 feet four inches set last week at Eddyville. Seddon says he knows what it is like to compete at Drake Stadium whether it be the Relays or State Meet so nerves are not an issue. Seddon finished fourth last year at the Drake Relays…and hopes to place higher this season. He will also compete in the shot put Saturday morning. Also from Knoxville the four-by-100 meter relay team will run their preliminary tomorrow night just after six-oh-clock.
