LANCASTER, Pa. – Sheena Crawley and Nils Michaelis are set to represent Franklin & Marshall at the 2013 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships this week in La Crosse, Wisc.

Crawley returns to the NCAA's for the fourth straight season and will compete in the 1500 meters at the national championships for the second time. The preliminaries of the women's 1500 are scheduled for Thursday at 4:30 p.m., with the top-eight finishers advancing to Saturday's finals at 2:50 p.m.

Crawley enters the field as the No. 2 seed in the 1500 with a seed time of 4:25.10, and is looking to become the first four-time All-American in school history.  The senior placed eighth in the 800 meters last year, took seventh in the 1500 in 2011, and claimed eighth in the 800 as a freshman in 2010.

After an injury-plagued 2012 campaign, Michaelis returns to the NCAA Championships for the second time in the 110-meter hurdles. The senior is seeking his second All-America nod after earning a fourth-place finish in 110 hurdles in 2011. Michaelis is seeded 12th in the 20-person field with a seed time of 14.60. 

The preliminaries of the 110 hurdles are slated for Friday at 5:25 p.m., with the finals scheduled for Saturday at 3:25 p.m.
