reagan-morganJoplin, Mo. — Two Missouri Southern Women track and field athletes have been accepted and will compete at the USA Junior Outdoor Track and Field National meet this week at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.

Brittani Reagan will compete in both the triple jump and the long jump. Kaylee Morgan will compete in the long jump. In order to qualify, both athletes had to previously meet the standard qualifying mark set by USA Track and Field during the collegiate season. Both were All-Americans in their respective events this year.

Those finishing in the top four in the meet will have the opportunity to qualify for the 2013 Pan American Junior Championships in August in Medellin, Colombia.

The triple jump will take place on Thursday, June 20 at 1 p.m. and the long jump on Friday, June 21 at 1:10 p.m.
