Nebraska Wesleyan University has eight men and three women ready to compete at the 2007 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships. The meet begins Thursday and is being hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
Nebraska Wesleyan coaches hoped to be sending their normal contingent of between 12 and 20 student-athletes to the 2007 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships this weekend. However, closed roads and interstates late last week made a trip to Iowa State University impossible and eliminated their final opportunity to qualify. As a result, only eight Prairie Wolves are traveling to the national meet, which starts tomorrow at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Ind.
