LOS ANGELES — The Occidental track and field team is sending eight athletes to the NCAA Division III National Championship meet that begins in La Crosse, Wis. this Thursday.
For the Oxy women, Jada Newkirk qualified and will compete in the 100m, 200m and long jump. She will be joined in the sprints by LaShauna Porter, who qualified in the 100m and 200m, Emma Yudelevitch in the 100m, and Isabelle Dunne in the 400m hurdles. Melissa Braun made the cut in the pole vault and Sabrina Degnan is going in the Javelin, rounding out the field of six members of the Oxy women's team.
The Tigers also had a number of athletes selected on the USTFCCCA All-West Region teams.
"We're proud of the Tigers that have been named to the West Region team for the 2018 track & field season," Oxy head coach Rob Bartlett said. "It's a fitting honor for a season's worth of hard work and dedication."
