Campbell, McGowan selected for NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships

INDIANAPOLIS – The NCAA announced the fields for the men's and women's Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships on Monday and Salisbury University will see two student-athletes competing for national championships.

Junior Luke Campbell, a veteran to the national stage, will be in competition for his fifth national title, while sophomore Meghan McGowan will make her first appearance at the national meet.

Campbell is the defending national champion in the 60-meter hurdles, and has earned All-American honors in his first two collegiate years in the event. He enters this weekend's championships ranked first in the nation, with a top time of 7.93 seconds. Only two other student-athletes in the country have broken the eight-second barrier this year – Worcester State University's Terrence Gibson (7.98 seconds) and Bridgewater State University's Conor Murtagh (7.99 seconds).

McGowan, who has cleared a top height of 5' 6.5", accomplishing the feat at the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships this past weekend in New York, goes into the national meet seeded seventh, matching the top height of seven other competitors. McGowan is one of just five underclassmen in the field of 17 student-athletes.

Campbell begins his championship schedule on Friday, March 13, competing in the 60-meter hurdle prelims, at 2:35 p.m., hoping to advance to Saturday's finals, at 2:15 p.m. McGowan's high jump competition will be contested on Saturday, at 10 a.m.
