DE PERE - A pair of St. Norbert College juniors - Taylor Pasterski and Dan Sisler - have qualified for the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championship at Ohio Wesleyan University Thursday through Saturday.
Pasterski qualified in the 400-meter run, while Sisler advances for the second year in a row as a decathlete.
Sisler, who was injured during the decathlon at last year's NCAA Outdoor Championship in La Crosse, was the final qualifier to the decathlon. Sisler's 6,376 points were good enough to make him the 20th seeding in the event. The decathlon starts at 11:30 a.m. CDT Thursday and Noon CDT Friday.
Pasterski enters as the No. 3 seeding out of 20 competitors in the 400-meter dash. Pasterski's season-best time was 47.44 seconds. La Verne's Chancise Watkins is the No. 1 seeding at 47.25 seconds. Preliminary races in the 400 are set for 6:15 p.m. CDT Friday and the championship race is slated for 2:05 p.m. CDT Saturday.
