KANSAS CITY, MO. (March 3, 2020) – The official final rosters and entry lists for all qualifiers for the 2020 Women's Indoor Track and Field National Championships have been announced.
Approximately 520 women's qualifiers are set to compete in the 2020 NAIA Indoor Track and Field National Championships.
Miki Romain from Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) has qualified for the championships in the 60-meter hurdles.
"To be able to qualify for my third indoor national meet is nothing short of a blessing," Romain said. "After a year filled with 5:45 a.m. weights and practices, it's so satisfying to be able to have results that display the effort that has been put in from the offseason until now. As a senior, I treasure every moment on the track as if it may be my last. And since Friday (and hopefully Saturday) will mark the last-ever races of my indoor track career, I know I have to race better than I ever have before.
"Going in ranked No. 27 is a blessing, but it's simply something that I cannot be content with. This initial ranking in no way shape or form stops me from going for my goal of top eight. My family, friends, coaches and fur babies have done nothing but motivate me, and with the work I've put in practice over the last two weeks I know that this weekend will be one to remember."
The NAIA Women's Indoor Track and Field Championship hosted by Dakota State University will take place at the Sanford Jackrabbit Athletic Complex in Brookings, S.D.
Romain will participate in the preliminaries in her event on March 6 at 12:35 p.m. Finals will take place on March 7 at 12:45 p.m.
