McCabe set to compete in NCAA
MORGANTOWN, WV – Freshman in red shirt Ceili McCabe heads to the 2022 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships at the Birmingham CrossPlex in Birmingham, Alabama on March 11-12.
At her first NCAA indoor collegiate championships, McCabe will compete in the women’s 3,000-meter race, which is scheduled to begin Saturday, March 12 at 9 p.m. ET.
“While it’s not the winter we expected for Ceili and her Distance Medley teammates, we’re excited to see the NCAA meetup unfold,” the coach said. Sean Clear noted. “We believe Ceili is getting fitter and stronger every day. This weekend will be a great opportunity to test her current fitness, and it will be a great step for the outdoor season.”
