HANOVER, N.H. - The Dartmouth track & field teams will have another chance to try and get several more members of the team into the NCAA East Regional at this weekend's ECAC and IC4A Championships at Princeton.

The NCAA East Regional meet is set for May 24-26 in Jacksonville as the University of North Florida will host the final tune-up leading up to the NCAA Championship Meet at Drake in Des Moines, Iowa, two weeks later.

The Big Green coaches are taking several student-athletes this weekend to Princeton with the hopes that they can jump up in the seedings of their events in order to qualify for Regionals.

Two of those individuals looking to earn spots in Jacksonville are sophomore Megan Krumpoch (Shrewsbury, Mass.) in the 400-meter hurdles and junior Connor Reilly (Niskayuna, N.Y.) in the 100 meters. Both are on the cusp of automatic qualifiers and are in the hunt for some of the final slots in their respective events.

Other Dartmouth competitors, such as the Ivy League Heptagonal Champion in the heptathlon Janae Dunchack (Northern Cambria, Pa.) along with Cathy Liebowitz (Plainfield, N.H.) and TJ Servino (Highland Mills, N.Y.) in the women's and men's hammer throw, will also be looking to move on.

The men will see entrants in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, as well as the 5,000 and 10,000 meters on Princeton's track over the course of the three-day meet.  Henry Sterling (South Freeport, Maine) will run in the steeple, while John Bleday (Westwood, Mass.) will compete in the 3K and Dylan O'Sullivan (Harrowsmith, Ont.) in the 5K.

Several members of the women's team will also make their way to Massachusetts to compete in the 1,500 meters at the Bentley Twilight meet in the hopes of bolstering Dartmouth's contingent at UNF in two weeks. Leading the way at Bentley should be Arianna Vailas (Manchester, N.H.) as she looks to build on her performances all season to finally lock up a spot in Northern Florida.
