Heidelberg University men's track and field hurdler Kenny Beucler has qualified for the NCAA Division III National Championships. The event, hosted by conference foe Mount Union, runs May 23-25 at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio.
Beucler qualified fifth in the 400m hurdles with a time of 52.54. He competed at nationals in the same event in 2017, finishing 13th. That same year, he was a part of Heidelberg's 4x400m relay team which also competed on the national stage.
The preliminary heats for the 400m hurdles will be held Thursday afternoon. The final nine hurdlers vie for a national title on Saturday afternoon.
