Release: 05/16/2013

INDIANAPOLIS - The NCAA Division I Men's and Women's Track and Field Committee has announced the participants in the 2013 NCAA Division I Men's and Women's Outdoor Track and Field Preliminary Championships competition.

The Preliminary championships competitions will be held May 23-25. The East region will be held at North Carolina A&T in Greensboro, N.C. and the West region at Texas in Austin, Texas. The qualifiers out of these regions will compete in the NCAA Division I Men's and Women's Outdoor Track and Field Championships held June 5-8 in Eugene, Ore.

Carolina had 25 individuals and one relay rank high enough on the descending order list to compete at the first round of the NCAA Championships in the East region. The Tar Heels will be represented in 20 total events for the men and women, balanced across the field and running disciplines.

Qualifying to the final championships competition in Eugene, Ore., is accomplished through performance in the preliminary championships competition at each site for events contested at those competitions. Twelve competitors from each individual event and 12 teams from each relay event advance from each preliminary championships competition site resulting in the top 24 at the final championships. The top eight from those final qualifiers earn All-America honors.

A complete list of women's participants for the NCAA East Preliminary can be found here and the men's participants here. Final national rankings are also available.
