ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The No. 6 UCF track and field team will return one of its fiercest competitors to the track this weekend when the Knights travel to the Rod McCravy Memorial in Lexington, Ky.

Sophomore Dominique Booker will make her debut of the 2012 indoor season in the 60 Meters and 200 Meters. Last year, Booker emerged as an All American in those events.

Eva Pierce and Afia Charles will highlight the 400 Meters after both set personal bests last weekend at the Gator Invitational and Auburn Invitational, respectively.

Sophomore Erica Winston will look to build upon her personal best in last week's 800 Meter that earned her a top-five finish at the Auburn Invitational.

Senior Jackie Coward, who is the fourth-fastest woman in the 60 Hurdles this year, will compete alongside classmate Ashley Bolling.

Precious Ogunleye, who has broken the UCF freshmen throwing records for two-straight weeks, and Destinee Romain will represent the Knights in the shot put and weight throw.

The field of 17 teams includes host Kentucky, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Ohio State and Vanderbilt. UCF's scheduled participants can be found below. Be sure to visit UCFAthletics.com for results from the weekend.
