BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—The Birmingham-Southern track and field program will make its sixth-straight appearance at the NCAA Championship as seniors Elizabeth Bromirski and Hank Ballard have qualified and will compete for national titles in the high jump and javelin throw in Delaware, Ohio, May 22-24, the NCAA announced today.
In the men's field, the top 20 declared student-athletes for each event were taken, while the top 22 were taken in the women's field. Ballard is fourth in the nation in the javelin with a mark of 65.15 meters, while Bromirski is 10th in the high jump with a mark of 1.70 meters.
"I am proud to have 'Bro' and Hank representing our program and BSC at the National Championships this year!" Head Coach Kenneth Cox said. "They are two student-athletes that have worked hard for four years and deserve this opportunity to compete at the highest level. After qualifying last year in the javelin as well, Hank has learned so much from that experience and dedicated every day to getting back to finish the job. This is our third consecutive outdoor championship appearance, and sixth including indoor, and each year means even more to our athletes and coaching staff."
Live video and live scoring will be available on Ohio Wesleyan University's athletic site, as the Battling Bishops play host to the championship. The championship web page can be found here.
