SAN ANTONIO – The University of the Incarnate Word track and field team will have student-athletes compete in five events at the NCAA West Regional Championships in College Station, Texas May 26-May 29. 
 
UIW is set to take on top track and field student-athletes in the West region from schools like Oregon, Arkansas, and host Texas A&M at the E.B. Cushing Stadium.  
 
On the women's side, Sullivan Wilke will be the first Cardinal to compete at the regional meet in the high jump event. The sophomore cleared a 1.75-meter height at the Southland Conference Championships earlier this month, earning her a bronze medal and qualifying her for the meet. The 1.75 meters marked a new UIW record that was set by the 2014 conference champion in the program's first year in Division I.

On the men's side, Matheo Bernat will compete in the 110-meter hurdles, Jordan Chopane in the 100-meter dash and Richard Kuykendoll in the 400-meter run, the 200-meter dash and in the 4x100 meter relay race along with Chopane, DeVante Mount and Quadyr Tindal with Kyle Lewis as the alternate.  
 
This marks the first time the Cardinals have sent someone to regionals in the 110-meter hurdles, the 400-meter run, the 200-meter dash and 4x100 relay squad on the men's side.  
 
Throughout the season, Bernat set the program record in the event on three separate occasions clocking in his fastest 110-meter hurdle time at the Bobcat Classic on May 2 with a time of 13.89 seconds. Kuykendoll set a record at the same meet in the 400-meter run of 46.37 seconds, smashing the previous one by two seconds.  
 
The Bobcat Classic was also a favorable meet for the Cardinals in the 4x100 relay as the squad finished first with a time of 40.27 seconds, to qualify for the regional meet.  
 
Chopane qualified for the meet at the Southland Conference Championships on May 15. He missed finals by just tenths of a second, but his 10.38 seconds in the 100-meter dash was the only wind-legal time of the race.  
 
See below for when the Cardinals are set to compete and when they compete again should they advance in their events.
