Approximately 32 teams will be sending athletes to Johns Hopkins Track with many of the athletes hoping to achieve NCAA qualifying marks.

The women’s team has many athletes in contention for NCAA Qualification. Erin Brush currently has the 29th fastest time in the 800-meter dash (2:13.81) while Therese Olshanski (4:34.93) sits 25th in the 1,500-meter dash. Felicia Koerner and Ellie Clawson both rank in the top-25 in the 5K with Koerner posting the 19th fastest time (16:54.75) and Clawson posting the 22nd fastest time (16:58.43). In the 3,000 steeplechase, Caroline Smith and Tasha Freed will look to improve on their season-best marks which has them ranked 20th and 27th, respectively, in the nation. Mikayla Bisignani currently ranks 30th in the discus with a throw of 42.63m and will look to move into the top-20. Veronica Montane will also look to move into the top-20 in the javelin as the freshman currently sits 36th with a throw of 40.00m.
