Track and Field - Wed, Apr. 5, 2017

The men's and women's track and field teams both received a top 10 Midwest Regional rank in the first week of the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) outdoor rankings. The Viking men were ranked No. 7 while the women were ranked No. 4. Both teams are coming off second place finishes at the Baker Relays held last weekend (April 1).

The women have also been nationally ranked at No. 21 and have a top three performance in discus with senior Taylor Wells (Des Moines, Iowa). Wells, who was the National Champion in discus last season, hit her A-standard qualifying mark of 46.09m on March 25th at the Grand View Invitational.

The Viking women are the only team in the Heart of America represented in this week's Top 25 Poll.

Grand View will continue competition this Saturday (April 8) as they travel to Seward, Nebraska to participate in the Concordia Invitational.
