WILMINGTON, Ohio -  Wilmington women's track and field team has entered postseason mode as they send individuals to a last chance meet at Baldwin Wallace University. The athletes seek a chance to qualify for nationals in the events in which they compete. 

The Schedule: The meet is set to start at 2:00 PM, a later start than usual as the competition size decreases. 

The Teams: Wilmington will be joined by other Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) schools. 

The Coach: Ron Combs continues his 23rd season as the head coach of Wilmington's men's and women's track and field teams. Combs has been named Coach of the Year, twice by the Heartland Athletic Conference, and once by the OAC. In 2002, he led the men's indoor team to a sixth-place finish at NCAA DIII Championships.

Who to Watch: Kayli Sullivan looks to add to an outstanding season as she enters the meet ranked in the top-50 in both the hammer throw (18th) and shotput (42nd). She will be competing in both events. Emma Burke is on the final straightaway of her senior season. She is currently ranked 16th in the nation in the 400-meter hurdles. She looks to add speed this weekend as she is entered in the 200-meter and 400-meter dash.
