HIGH POINT, N.C.- Conference Carolinas will host its second annual Men’s and Women’s Indoor Track and Field Championship Race starting at 12 pm on February 22, 2014.
The championship race will be held at the JDL Fast Track located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and will feature: Barton College, Belmont Abbey College, Converse College, King University, Lees-McRae College, Limestone College, University of Mount Olive, and North Greenville University.
This will be the second year indoor track and field has been sponsored as a conference sport and the second year the conference championship has been held at JDL Fast Track. The Conference Carolinas Championship Race will be the sole feature for the arena that day, as the sport gains traction within the conference and as conference schools continue to make headlines.
King University swept the competition last year in winning both the men’s and women’s side of the championship. The Tornado have high hopes for this year’s competition as both teams grabbed the top seed in the Pre-Season Conference Carolinas Coaches Poll. However, with the sport still in its infancy anything thing is possible.
In addition, the JDL Fast Track will also be the host site for the NCAA Division II National Championships, thus giving conference competitors the opportunity to envision themselves returning in a couple of weeks to compete on the national stage.
