GENEVA --- The highly-ranked George Fox men and women's track and field teams are slated to compete in 12 events at the 2019 NCAA Division III Men's and Women's Outdoor Track & Field Championships at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio, May 23-25.

The NCAA takes the Top 20 on the men's side in all events, while the women's side is comprised of the Top 22 in all events. The men and women's relays take the Top 16 earning a spot at Nationals.

George Fox is coming off its third straight sweep at the Northwest Conference Championships, as both the men and women's teams won NWC titles. The win on the men's side marks the third time in the program's history, while the women's team earned their eighth title.

The George Fox women's team recorded one of the most dominant seasons to date, holding the No. 1 ranking for six straight weeks during the season. The Bruins enter Nationals at No. 4 and will look to repeat as National Champions. Last season, the women's team claimed the National Championship after putting together a team performance of 44 points to share the title with UMass Boston.

The following athletes will represent the women's team this weekend: Kennedy Taube (100m, 4x100m-relay), Sarah King (200m, 400m, 4x100m-relay, 4x400m-relay), Sydney Radigan (200m, 4x100m-relay), Christine Strickland (Javelin), Jensyn Lown (Javelin), Annie Wright (Heptathlon, 4x400m-relay), Sara Turner (4x100m-relay), Elizabeth Warren (4x400m-relay), Katie James (4x400m-relay), Lis Larsen (4x100m-relay), Macadia Calavan (4x400m-relay), Bethany Gingerich (4x400m-relay).

King becomes the first Bruin to compete in four different events at Nationals. She holds the No. 1 time in the women's 400m (55.01) and the No. 3 time in the women's 200m (24.45). She also holds the second-best time in the women's 800m, but won't be competing in that event at Nationals. Annie Wright is the current NCAA Div. III record holder in the women's heptathlon and leads the field by over 300-plus points.
