Northwest Missouri State's Will Haer, John Petroff and Ashton Nibert found out Tuesday they are headed to the Division II National Outdoor Track & Field Meet in Pueblo, Colo.
Haer (pole vault), Petroff (discus) and Nibert (400M dash) are all first-time qualifiers on a Bearcat team that also sent three to nationals last year.
Haer, a senior from Craig, made it in with the 14th-best height in Division II of 16-3.5. He won the pole vault title at the MIAA Championships in Hays, Kan.
A junior offensive lineman on the Northwest football team, Petroff was one of seven discus qualifiers in the MIAA. His top throw of 175-2 ranks ninth in Division II.
Nibert, a sophomore from Independence, clocked the second fastest 400 time in school history earlier this year of 54.56 that ranks 10th nationwide.
The D-II National Championships are May 23-25.
