DURHAM, N.C. - Twenty-seven Blue Devils officially qualified for the 2013 NCAA East First Round, as announced by the NCAA Wednesday, May 16.  The regional event is the final qualifier for the NCAA Outdoor Track and field championships and will be hosted by UNC Greensboro on May 23-25 in Greensboro, N.C. 

“There were five athletes on the bubble and they all got in,” Duke Director of Track and Field Norm Ogilvie said. “We are thrilled.  We also have a good number of athletes who have a good shot of making it to the Championships in Eugene, which is really exciting.”

In order to qualify for the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Ore., individuals and relay teams must finish in the top 12 of each event. 

Additionally, the NCAA Championship multi-event fields have been announced and include redshirt junior Curtis Beach in the decathlon.  The Albuquerque, N.M., native qualified with his first place performance at the 2013 Texas Relays where he scored 8,011 total points.   Beach will compete in the men’s pole vault and long jump at the NCAA East First Round.

Other Blue Devils to qualify in multiple events include redshirt freshman Stephen Boals who will compete in the men’s discus and shot put, while redshirt senior Cydney Ross is set to race in the women’s 800 meters and the women’s 4x400 relay and sophomore Elizabeth Kerpon will run in the open 400 and 4x400 relay.
