KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The official qualifiers for the 2016 NAIA Men's and Women's Indoor Track & Field National Championships have been announced by the national office on Friday. The 51st annual men's and 36th annual women's events will take place March 3 - 5 in Johnson City, Tenn.
Whitney Leuenberger will be the lone Blue Hawk in the National Meet, competing in the Shot Put.
For the first time since 2010, Johnson City, Tenn., will serve as the host city. The David E. Walker Track at Gentry Field was the host facility from 2001-2010.
