DEKALB, Ill. - The Northern Illinois University track & field team caps its season this week in Eugene, Oregon, when Claudette Day (Belleville, Ill./Belleville West) competes in the high jump at the 2014 NCAA National Championships.
 
The meet opens Wednesday afternoon at historic Hayward Field and runs through Saturday afternoon. The high jump is scheduled for Saturday at 2:45 p.m. CT.
 
"Claudette's qualifying for the NCAA national meet is a huge accomplishment for her athletic career, along with the NIU Track & Field program," said NIU head coach Connie Teaberry. "She has several characteristics that have enabled her to reach this goal. Claudette's work ethic is without falter, her belief in her ability never waivers and she is a fierce competitor. These traits are a recipe for success. Claudette will cherish this opportunity and, due to her relentless work to succeed, this opportunity is very deserving of this young and talented student-athlete."
 
Two weeks ago, NIU sent Day, Meghan Heuer (St. Charles, Ill./North), Ali Olson (New Auburn, Wis./Bloomer) and Sidra Sherrill (Fort Wayne, Ind./Northrop) to the NCAA West Preliminary Round at Arkansas. While there, Day leaped 5-07.75 (1.72m) before hitting 5-09.75 (1.77m) in a jump-off to punch her ticket to Oregon. Meanwhile, Heuer advanced to the quarterfinal round of the 800 meters after running a school-record time of 2:07.79. Olson capped her year with a 40th-place finish in the 800 meters and Sherrill placed 37th in the discus.
 
In Eugene, Day will go head-to-head against the nation's top high jumpers. Included in the field are returning All-Americans Courtney Anderson of South Florida, Leontia Kallenou of Georgia, Thea LaFond of Maryland and Shanay Briscoe of Texas. Day is also one of three Mid-American Conference athletes in the field, joining Kent State's Dior Delophont and Eastern Michigan's Kate Wolanin.
