INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA Division I Men's and Women's Track and Field Committee has selected North Carolina A&T State to host the 2013 NCAA Division I Track and Field East preliminary round in Greensboro, N.C. The competition will take place May 23-25, 2013.

North Carolina A&T most recently served as the host for Division I NCAA East preliminary round track and field competition in 2010.

“While there were a number of quality bids by institutions and sports commissions interested in hosting the East prelims, the committee felt North Carolina A&T had a strong track and field program and would bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the event,” said Todd Patulski, chair of the track and field committee and deputy athletics director at Baylor. “North Carolina A&T has first class facilities, staff and a serious commitment to the success of this event. We’re positive that this will be a fantastic experience for the student-athletes, coaches and fans alike.”
