LAKE CHARLES – Due to impending weather, Saturday’s McNeese Last Chance meet involving Northwestern State track and field competitors has been cancelled.
The meet was designed to provide a final opportunity for athletes to qualify for the NCAA East Preliminary Round Championships by ranking in the top 48 in their event regionally.
As it stands, a combined 19 NSU competitors (nine men, 10 women) across 12 events have qualifying marks pending results of several conference championships, including the talent-rich Southeastern Conference.
The NCAA East Preliminaries are set for May 23-25 in Jacksonville, Florida. The top 12 finishers in each event advance to the NCAA Outdoor Championships June 5-8 in Austin, Texas.
