CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—The Virginia men’s and women’s track and field teams are set to compete at the NCAA Indoor Championships Friday and Saturday (March 11-12) at the Birmingham CrossPlex in Birmingham, Ala.
Live results will be available at VirginiaSports.com and ESPN3 will stream the meet live starting Friday at 6:25 p.m. and on Saturday starting at 4:45 p.m. A re-air of the championship is scheduled for this Sunday (March 13) at 7 p.m. on ESPN2, and again on March 23 at 10 p.m. on ESPNU.
On Friday, junior Henry Wynne (Westport, Conn.) is set to compete in the men’s mile semifinals at 6:30 p.m., while graduate student Iona Lake (Norwich, Englad) will run in the women’s mile semifinals at 6:45 p.m. The Cavalier men will close out the night with the distance medley relay, set for 9:45 p.m.
On Saturday, redshirt-sophomore Filip Mihaljevic (Livno, Bosnia and Herzegovina) will compete in the men’s shot put at 3 p.m. The finals of the men’s and women’s mile will begin at 5 p.m.
Lake, the ACC champion in the women’s mile, will be seeded ninth at the national meet. It is Lake’s first NCAA Indoor Championship meet. Her time of 4:36.11 at the ACC meet is fifth on UVA’s all-time list and was a personal record by over six seconds.
Wynne was a two-time 2016 ACC indoor champion after winning the men’s mile and anchoring the men’s distance medley relay. Wynne also finished second in the 3,000 meters to earn All-ACC honors. His mile time of 3:58.74, set at the John Thomas Terrier Invitational in Boston, gives Wynne a No. 14 seed. Wynne was also a part of the DMR that finished sixth at the 2015 NCAA indoor meet, earning first-team All-America honors.
Mihaljevic, the two-time defending ACC indoor champion in the men’s shot put, broke the ACC and school record at the Rod McCravy Memorial Meet in Lexington, Ky., with a mark of 20.69m (67’ 10.75”). Mihaljevic, who will be seeded second, earned second-team All-America honors with a 14th-place finish at last year’s NCAA indoor meet.
The men’s DMR will compete at the NCAA indoor meet for the second-consecutive year. The Cavalier foursome of freshman Matthew Novak (Glen Allen, Va.), junior Nathan Kiley (Chantilly, Va.), sophomore Kenneth Hagen (Blacksburg, Va.) and Wynne captured the 2016 ACC title and ran a converted time of 9:27.89 (from a flat track to a banked track) at the UCS Invitational in Winston-Salem, N.C. That time gives the Cavaliers a No. 7 seed.
After the national meet, the Cavaliers will open the 2016 outdoor track and field season with the Virginia Cup at Lannigan Field on March 19.
