CNU Hosts Indoor Track & Field Meet This Weekend


NEWPORT NEWS, Va. -- The Freeman Center will play host to the Captains Invitational & Multis this weekend, the second Indoor Track & Field Meet of the season for Christopher Newport. Field events begin at approximately 9:00 am with track events beginning at 11:00 am. It is the last meet before the first USTFCCA Regional Rankings are released next week.

Christopher Newport will feature a pair of returning All-Americans this weekend, including Richard Roethel who finished third in the Indoor Pentathlon last season. This year, Division III has added two events on the men's side, making it a Heptathlon. In last year's National Championship Meet, Roethel won the High Jump and added a pair of top four finishes in the 55M Hurdles and Shot Put.

The other returning All-American for the Captains this year is senior Dira Hansen. Hansen was an All-American in the 800M last season and will run in that event on Saturday. She will also run in the 200M Hurdles and as a member of the Distance Medley.

The meet includes Division I programs like UNC Wilmington, The Citadel, Winston-Salem State and Elon, along with several Division III programs as well. Results will be available at CNUsports.com following each day's events, and can also be found here.

Videos of events will be posted at: http://www.runnerspace.com/CNU-Captains-Invitational-and-Multis. All running events will be posted after completion of the event and field events will be uploaded when they become available.
