Northwestern State reach final hurdle towards ultimate goal of competing in Nationals

NSU Sports Information

Reaching the NCAA East Preliminary Round Outdoor Track and Field Championships is an impressive accomplishment, but for most of the 12 Northwestern State competitors lining up Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the University of Kentucky, it’s one last hurdle to clear to reach their ultimate goal.

The top 12 finishers at the regional championship advance to the national meet in Eugene, Ore., June 7-10. Six NSU entries rank in the top 21 regionally, including five that are 15th or higher.

With the 12 qualifiers, NSU ranks third among the 13 Southland Conference track and field programs in the number of athletes who have reached the regional round of the national championships.

While several entries have potential to advance to Oregon, the highest expectation is obviously on the returning All-Americans in the 4x100.

Action for NSU began Thursday afternoon at 3:30 CST
