Chris Brown ’12 and Kate Warwick ’12 will represent the Judges at the 2012 NCAA Division III indoor track and field championships this weekend at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa. Warwick will be running in the 5,000-meter race while Brown will compete in the mile run. Both runners will be seeded third in their respective events.
This is the second appearance in the NCAA championships for Warwick in 2011-2012. She first qualified for the championships in the 2011 Division III Cross Country meet and finished 48th overall, 13 spots and roughly 12 seconds behind All-American status. Warwick’s best time of the season in the 5,000-meter race came at the Boston University (BU) Valentine’s Day Invitational when she finished with a time of 17:03.44. Her time was the fourth-best of the season, with one of the athletes ranked ahead of her unable to compete. Additionally, Warwick won a UAA title in the 3,000-meter run earlier this season. Warwick will have to wait until the end of the championships to compete in the 5,000-meter race as the final event of the meet.
Brown will be making his fourth career NCAA championship appearance. He reached three-straight Division III Cross Country championship meets from 2008-2010 as a member of the Brandeis team entry. Brown’s best time of the season also came at the BU Valentine’s Day Invitational where he finished the mile run with a time of 4:05.98. His time was the second-fastest in school history and is one of the top-10 fastest finishes in Division III indoor track and field history. Brown won the UAA title in the event this season and will look to win the overall title this weekend.
