The Laker Track and Field team will be headed to Mt. Hood CC in Gresham, OR this weekend to prepare for the NWAC Championships on Monday and Tuesday next week.  The Lakers have had a great year so far and have a large number of student-athletes who have qualified for the championship this year. 16 men and 15 women from the Laker team have qualified in a variety of events. Wilson Hodge (SO/Coquille, OR) is currently ranked 2nd in the NWAC for the shot put and Savannah Thurman (FR/Coos Bay, OR) is currently ranked 7th for the discus. Both of these student-athletes have a great chance of earning All-American honors at the Championships.
