ESTAL, N.Y.-- Junior Erik van Ingen has officially qualified for the NCAA Indoor Track & Field championships in the mile. The final selections were posted Monday night. The two-day meet will be held this weekend at the University of Arkansas.

van Ingen's fastest time of 3:59.58, which he recorded at the Penn State National Open on Jan. 30 was good enough for a No. 13 ranking heading into the meet. The top 16 runners were selected to the NCAA Championships.

On Friday, the trials will start at 5:55 p.m EST. The top eight runners will advance to the finals, which will be held at 7:15 p.m. EST.

Erik would be at an NCAA Championship Meet for the second time in his career. He advanced to the Cross Country Championships back in November.

Erik is the third Binghamton athlete to qualify for a NCAA Division I Track & Field Championshpi meet. Rory Quiller went to three indoor championships and a pair of outdoor championships during his career (all in the pole vault). Current junior Cazal Arnett qualified for the 400 at last year's indoor meet.

van Ingen also qualified for the NCAA Cross Country championships last November.
