the 9 competing are:
Sean Wright who will compete in both the 200 and 400 meter dashes over the weekend. He will be joined by fellow junior and 2008 Missouri Valley Conference outdoor champion in the discus, Julius Smith, and by seniors Sean Bowman (steeplechase), Steve Daniel (triple jump) and Gary Ogburn (200 meter)

for the women:
The women’s team brings a quartet of competitors to the meet this weekend, led by sophomores Kylie Hutson and Erica Moore. Hutson and Moore both qualified for the 2008 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championship earlier this year and both have aspirations for qualifying for the outdoor meet as well. Hutson, the MVC outdoor champion and all-time record holder in the pole vault, heads into the meet with the second-best jump in the region and the fifth-best in the country this season. Moore also heads in as a favorite, as her mark in the 400 hurdles currently ranks fifth in the region and 12th in the country.
Sophomore Lauren Martin and junior Jeann? Middleton round out the group of ISU women competing this weekend at the regional meet.

3 more ISU runners make NCAA's!

Erica Moore, Lauren Martin, and Steve Daniel all qualified for the NCAA championships today at Arkansas. They join Kylie Hutson, who won the women's pole vault last night.

Moore was 3rd in the 400 meter hurdles and Martin and Daniel were 4th in the triple jump, BOTH setting new school records in the process.

Sean Bowman was 17th in the Steeple and Julius Smith did not advance in the men's Discus throw.

ISU's women finished with 21 points, the highest of any MVC team in the Mideast regional. That put them just outside the top 10 in team points.
