Print Email Share

Winning seven events and tallying six provisional qualifiers, the women's track & field team secured the first triple crown in CCIW history, blowing away the competition at the Outdoor Championships at Augustana College May 6-7.

The 19th-ranked Cardinals are the first women's program to achieve the triple crown (titles in cross country, indoor and outdoor track & field) in one academic year since the conference began sponsorship of all three sports in 2000-2001. North Central amassed 223 points in the team total with Carthage College placing a distant second with 126.5 points. Defending champion Illinois Wesleyan University was third while Wheaton College was fourth. More 

The men's track and field team also brought home the CCIW outdoor title for the 33rd time and won five events, set two meet records and defeated this year's hosts by 41 points. Second-ranked North Central totaled 284 points to No. 18-ranked Augustana's 243. Carthage College was a distant third. More

Congratulations to both teams! Go Cards!
