The distance medley relay team of Maggie Pierson, Kelsey Strand, Sam McAllister and Emma Spoon finished fifth at the North Central College NCAA Qualifier. The foursome posted a time of 12:19.03, the fourth fastest in school history, and was attempting to qualify for the NCAA III National Indoor Championships that will be hosted by Grinnell College March 9-10.
The NCAA III has changed its qualifying standards this year. Instead of individuals or relays qualifying based on automatic and provisional standards, athletes will qualify based on the top-15 performances posted throughout the indoor season individually, and the top-10 performances in relays.
After today's action, the time needed to qualify for distance medley was 11:59.66.
