King Track & Field squads prepare for NCCAA Nationals

BRISTOL, Tenn. - King College has a total of 44 entries for Saturday's NCCAA Indoor Track & Field National Championship in Marion, Ind.

The Lady Tornado squad has 14 participants in 13 events with the Tornado roster of 13 in a dozen events for the national championship.

At the 2010 event the Lady Tornado finished second in the team standings while the Tornado finished seventh.

Lanneickia Brewton (Inman, S.C.) was an All-American in the 200-meter dash with a third-place run last season and she qualified in the same event for Saturday. Brewton will also be in the 60 and the long jump.

Hannah Witt (Mountain City, Tenn.) ran to All-American status in the 5,000 with a third-place performance. She will be a part of the same event as well as the 3,000 meter.

Naseem Haje (Hagerstown, Md.) once again qualified for the 5,000 where he finished seventh, a spot away from All-American honors. He also has a spot in the 3,000.

Saturday will also bring the indoor season to a close as King athletes have one more chance to qualify for NCAA Division II Indoor Nationals. Earl Rahming (Nassau, Bahamas) has a season best of 49.2 in the 400, just off the qualifying mark. The men's 1,600 relay team was three seconds off the NCAA qualifying time.
