DII Selections

INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA Division II Men’s and Women’s Track and Field and Cross Country Committee has announced the participants for the 2014 NCAA Division II Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Championships.

In order to be eligible to participate in the championships, teams and individuals had to qualify in their respective NCAA regional competitions that were held this past weekend.
