KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The official qualifiers for the 2016 NAIA Men's and Women's Indoor Track & Field National Championships have been announced by the national office on Friday. The 51st annual men's and 36th annual women's events will take place March 3 - 5 in Johnson City, Tenn.

Jose Chorro will compete in the 60 Meter Hurdles, Jay Liggins will compete in the Triple Jump and Josh Reed will compete in the 600 Meter Run for the Blue Hawks.      

For the first time since 2010, Johnson City, Tenn., will serve as the host city. The David E. Walker Track at Gentry Field was the host facility from 2001-2010. The championships begin on March 3 with the women's pentathlon at 1 p.m. EST and the men's heptathlon at 1:30 p.m. Last year, the Indiana Tech men repeated as national champions and the Oklahoma Baptist women won its third-consecutive national championship.
