Pipers To Send Pair To NCAA Indoor Track & Field Meet

Brenna Coyle and Brennan McKeag will represent Hamline in the Weight Throw at the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships this weekend in Grinnell, Iowa.

Coyle, a senior, won the MIAC title last weekend with a 57-8 1/4" throw. that currently ranks eighth best in the country. McKeag, also a senior, won the Shot Put title at last weekend's event . His 59-7 effort placed him second to teammate Andrew Schlicting in the Weight Throw. But an earlier 61-9 3/4 performance in a meet at St. Olaf ranks as ninth best in the country this winter and earned Brennan a ticket to Iowa. McKeag placed fourth in the Shot Put in last year's national indoor meet.

Both are scheduled to compete Friday afternoon.
