INDIANAPOLIS - West Liberty University senior thrower Kelsi Hulit has qualified for the 2022 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
The NCAA Division II Men's and Women's Track and Field Committee announced the participants for the 2022 Outdoor Nationals on Tuesday and the Hilltoppers' record-setting veteran was one of 21 women who will be competing for All-America honors in the discus event later this month.
Grand Valley State University is the host school for this year's NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships. The meet will be held May 26-28 at the GVSU Lacrosse/Track and Field Stadium in Allendale, Mich.
A two-time All-Region selection from Malvern, Ohio who holds multiple school indoor and outdoor records in the throwing events, Hulit made the field with room to spare after breaking her own school record with a throw of 156 feet, 10 inches (47.80 meters) at last month's Golden Eagle Invitational hosted by the University of Charleston.
Hulit is trying to become the second NCAA Division II outdoor All-American in West Liberty history. Alexis Montes was first in the Hilltopper record book, earning back-to-back All-America honors in the javelin at the 2015 and 2016 championships. Montes' throw of 167-7 at the 2016 meet remains a school and Mountain East Conference record.
