GREENWOOD, IN – Defiance College will serve as host for the HCAC Indoor Track and Field Championships this Saturday.  The Rose-Hulman men were selected by the coaches during the preseason to win the 2013 indoor title, while the Hanover women were tabbed to capture the women’s title.

The Engineers and Panthers will look to defend their HCAC Indoor Men's and Women's titles from a year ago. 

The Rose-Hulman men have a very deep roster, posting the top HCAC performances in four of the 17 indoor events.  The Engineers are ranked No. 6 in the Great Lakes Region and stand No. 20 overall in the NCAA Division III Dual Meet rankings.

Defiance College will look to challenge the two-time defending champion Engineers Saturday.  The Yellow Jackets have earned the top HCAC performance in five of the 17 events this winter and stand No. 7 in the Great Lakes Region and No. 17 in the USTFCCCA national rankings.

The Hanover women’s track team will try to pick up where they left off last winter as HCAC indoor champions.  The Panthers have posted three top marks in the conference so far this indoor season.  Sophomore Briahna Chambers (Bell, Texas) holds the top mark in the women’s 60-meter dash and  long jump to lead the squad.

Franklin and Rose-Hulman will look to challenge the defending champion Panthers Saturday.  The Grizzlies have five of the top HCAC performances this indoor season, while the Engineers have four top marks.
