Sarah Couperus (Marion, N.Y./Marion) and Brittany Feldman (Jamestown, N.Y./Southwestern) from the women's team and Justyn Haines (Albion, N.Y./Albion) from the men's team are likely bound for LaCrosse, Wis., the site of the D-III championship meet next Thursday, May 24, through Saturday, May 26.
The top 22 women and top 20 men are eligible for the national meet.
Couperus is highest seeded among the trio at No. 10 in the women's high jump. Her top mark of 1.68 meters (5 feet, 6 inches) came last Friday, May 11, at Allegheny College's Gator Invitational.
Feldman is 17th in the women's 400-meter dash with a season-best time of 56.30 seconds. It came April 21 at the Marietta College's Don Frail Invitational.
Haines is tied for 19th in the men's pole vault. He cleared 4.88 meters (16 feet) on May 4 at the SUNYAC championship meet.
Should their names be called, Couperus and Haines will be headed to nationals for the first time while Feldman will be making her fifth trip. She has earned NCAA D-III All-America honors twice, each time in the 400 meters.
At All-Atlantic Regional Meet held this week at Brockport, Haines cleared 4.86 meters (15 feet, 11 1/4 inches) to finish second in the pole vault, Couperus competed in the women's high jump, and Feldman raced in the 200 meters. Her time of 25.46 seconds was ninth-best.
Falling short of qualifying, yet still among the Top 50 in marks, was senior Damone Brown (Haverstraw, N.Y./North Rockland), who is 38th in the men's shot put. He competed at Brockport this week as did, among others, junior Nick Serafin (Depew, N.Y./Depew), who Thursday was seventh in the high jump at 1.88 meters (6 feet, 2 inches).
