During the week of May 23, 2011, hundreds of athletes, coaches, families, and fans will begin arriving in Delaware for the 2011 NCAA Division III men’s and women’s outdoor track & field championships. The three-day event will be held at Ohio Wesleyan University’s Selby Field and George Gauthier Track from May 26-28.

The event is expected to draw nearly 800 student-athletes from across the country. More than 430 colleges and universities take part in Division III athletics.

The event will be one of the largest athletics events ever hosted on the Ohio Wesleyan campus, says Kris Boey, OWU’s director of track & field and cross country.

“Ohio Wesleyan has a great tradition of hosting events, but this will be unlike anything we’ve done before,” says Boey, who also serves as head coach of the Battling Bishop men’s and women’s track & field team. “We’re proud to be doing it and be a catalyst for OWU and the Delaware community on a national level.”

Multiple Delaware City and County municipal and civic groups already are working with Ohio Wesleyan to ensure the community is prepared to handle the large influx of student-athletes and guests. The Greater Columbus Sports Commission also will be collaborating with the University.

“This is truly a community-wide event,” Boey says. “We want the nation to see how great Delaware is—and we’re excited by the willingness of so many people to work with us to make this a premier event.”

Boey is working with OWU’s Seth McGuffin, assistant men’s & women’s track & field coach, to oversee planning for the NCAA championships. Ashley Shaffer, a 2008 OWU graduate and former Battling Bishop women’s track & field participant, is serving as the NCAA intern to help ensure that the event runs smoothly.

Because OWU’s Selby Field now has stadium lighting, the track & field championships will have day and night components. As a result, several downtown restaurants have volunteered to stay open late to ensure fast, fresh food for the hungry athletes and spectators. Other groups have volunteered to help with traffic flow, parking, ticket sales, community relations information, and much more.

“We’re hoping to fill the stands with spectators, including lots of people from the Delaware community,” Boey says.

If you or your organization would like to volunteer to help with the 2011 NCAA Division III men’s and women’s outdoor track & field championships, please complete the volunteer sign-up form. A volunteer coordinator will be in touch to ensure your participation in this exciting event.

 

 

 

 

 

Ohio Wesleyan will host the NCAA Division III national outdoor track & field championships in May 2011. The competition will take place at OWU’s Selby Field, believed to be the oldest facility in the United States constructed to Olympic specifications and remaining in its original configuration. New stadium lights installed in summer 2010 will accommodate evening events.
