Twelve performers from each preliminary site advance to the NCAA Championships - hosted for the fifth straight year as part of a nine-year run at Hayward Field, in Eugene, Ore., on June 7-10. Cleirigh Buttner has run the 800 meters at the NCAA East Preliminary in each of the last two seasons and qualified for the NCAA Championships last season. Myers took silver in the race at the Mountain West Outdoor Championships. She will enter the prelims ranked 17th in the West. Joining her is Olusola, who is now the No. 20 100m hurdler in the West. She would go on to take bronze in the event.

Distance runners Claire Borchers, Gina Sereno, Jaimie Phelan, Jamie Morrissey, Sarah Zieve and Haley Meier; high jumper Claire Kieffer-Wright; sprinter Jade Harrison; and thrower Courtney Jacobsen earned bids to Lexington by virtue of ranking among the top 48 athletes who declared for the postseason in their respective events. Her best high jump mark of the year is also the best of her career, clearing 6 feet and 0.5 inches (1.84m) en route to a bronze medal at the Mountain West Championships. Decathletes do not compete at an NCAA preliminary; instead, the NCAA's top 24 decathletes are selected for the NCAA Championships.

The first round heats of the 1500 meters are on May 25 at 5:30 p.m., while the quarterfinal heats are on Saturday, May 27 at 6:30 p.m.

The meet will be streamed via the Longhorn Network and a final events schedule will be available as prelims near.
