UI Track and Field — 23 Hawkeyes qualify for NCAA Championships

logo_iowa_hawkeyesIOWA CITY, Iowa – The NCAA announced today that 23 student-athletes from the University of Iowa have qualified for the 2013 NCAA Track and Field Outdoor Championships. The NCAA first round will be held May 23-25 in Austin, Texas, at Mike A. Myers Stadium.

“We are very proud of the Iowa student-athletes who qualified for this competition, as it requires a performance that ranks amongst the Division I elite,” said head coach Layne Anderson. “It is a well-rounded group with student-athletes in all event groups, further illustrating the comprehensive nature of our program.”

The men’s team is represented by a total of 16 qualifiers, made up of 13 student-athletes competing in 15 individual events and one relay. The men are seeded 10th or higher in seven events, including the 400-meter relay, where the reigning conference champions earned the No. 4 seed.

Justin Austin, the Big Ten Track Athlete of Year, earned a pair of top 10 seeds. Austin enters the 100 meters as the No. 8 seed, and the 200 meters as the No. 7 seed.

Ten Hawkeye women qualified for 10 individual events, led by Majesty Tutson and Khanishah Williams. Tutson, the school record holder in the discus, earned the event’s No. 7 seed. Williams earned the No. 7 seed in the high jump. Three Hawkeyes – Jasmine Simpson, Ashlyn Gulvas and Annemie Smith – qualified in the hammer throw.

“It may very well be one of the more competitive groups we have qualified relative to previous years,” added Anderson. “We have a number of the student-athletes ranked high and positioned well with regard to qualifying on to the semifinal and final round in Eugene.”

The top 12 individuals or relays in each event from each preliminary site (East and West) will move on to the NCAA Championships final round in Eugene, Ore., on June 5-8.
