INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (UWECBlugolds.com) - Eight UW-Eau Claire men's indoor track & field members have been selected to compete at the 2011 NCAA Division III Championships, NCAA officials announced Sunday night.
The championships will be contested March 11-12 at the Capital Center Fieldhouse in Bexley, Ohio. The event is hosted by Capital University.
Eau Claire will compete in five different events over the two-day period.
In the field, Tony Sigrist (Jr.-Byron, Minn.) will participate in the weight throw for the second year in a row.
Bart Mestelle (Jr.-Sun Prairie, Wis.) was selected to compete in the pentathlon.
On the track, the following Blugolds will compete at the championships:
Patrick Keyes (Sr.-Ham Lake, Minn./Blaine) – 55-meter hurdles
Tom Breitbach (Jr.-Muskego, Wis.) – 5,000-meter run
The Blugolds also earned a spot in the distance medley relay. Earning a spot to compete in the relay were Alex Adkinson (So.-Whitewater, Wis.), Patrick Mackin (Jr.-Green Bay, Wis./Notre Dame Academy), Aaron Easker (So.-Eland, Wis./Wittenberg-Birnamwood ) and Jake Zander (Sr.-Chippewa Falls, Wis./McDonell).
