Indoor track and field:

Christopher Newport was ranked 15th in the Division III national coaches’ poll. Four of the top five teams are from Wisconsin, led by defending national champion UW-La Crosse.

The Captains will be bolstered by the return of senior Richard Roethel, who missed last season while studying abroad in Germany. Two years ago, he won the NCAA heptathlon and set a division record in the event, and also placed third in the high jump.
