    AMES, Iowa - Four sprinters and the men's 4x400 relay team headed to the Iowa State Last Chance meet on Saturday in hopes of punching their tickets to the 2013 NCAA Division I Indoor Championships on March 8-9 in Fayetteville, Ark.

    The Cougars swept the men's and women's 400-meter dash with two personal best. Senior Errol Nolan added to his successful season as he broke the school record on the men's side with a time of 46.10. He erased the previous record of 46.12, which he set last season. Nolan is currently ranked eighth in the nation with his run. Fellow senior Brittany Wallace shaved 0.94 seconds off her time to improve to 53.33, where she sits in the 25 spot in the nation.

    The men's 4x400 relay team topped the competition with a time of 3:10.25, but did not improve upon its school-record breaking time of 3:07.60. The relay team is currently ranked No.13 nationally.

    Also competing for the Cougars were freshmen Leshon Collins and Isaac Williams. Collins ran a 6.79 in the men's 60-meter dash, while Williams finished third when he clocked in at 7.90 in the men's 60-meter hurdles. Collins is tied for 17-place and Williams is tied for 21.

    The NCAA abandoned the qualifying standards for the 2013 indoor competition. With no qualifying standards, the top-16 performers in each individual event and the top-12 relay teams in both the 4x400-meter relay and distance medley relay qualify for entry into the championships.

    A LOOK AHEAD
    The Cougars will find out Monday who will be invited to the competition as this weekend's results are compiled.
