Coyle will look to continue his success on the national scene as he will compete in both of the triple jump and long jump. The NEWMAC Field Athlete of the Year is seeded third in the long jump with a mark of 7.40 meters, while ranking fifth in the triple jump after reaching a qualifying distance of 14.98 meters. The Bradford, N.H. native previously won the national championship in the long jump this year at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in early March.

Hay will compete for the first time as an individual at the outdoor championships after qualifying in the 200 meter dash. A native of Norwalk, Conn., the NEWMAC Men's Track Athlete of the Year is seeded 13th in a field of 22 with a qualifying time of 21.69. Last season, Hay was a member of Springfield's national runner-up 4x100 relay team.

Fuller will conclude his senior year by running in the 3,000 meter steeplechase at the national meet. A local product of Ludlow, Mass., Fuller will compete for the first time in the NCAA Track Championships after he qualified with the 14th fastest time, 9:12.64, in the 19-man field.
