BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – In his senior campaign on The Hill, WKU’s Ventavius Sears is headed for the 2017 Indoor NCAA Track and Field Championships for the second-consecutive year. Action from College Station, Texas, is slated to begin Friday at Noon and again on Saturday at the same time.
Competing in the long jump this time around, Sears will compete on Friday at 5:30 p.m. CT. The Columbus, Georgia, native is one of 16 long jumpers scheduled to compete at Texas A&M this year.
Sears’ season-best jump was a mark of 7.78 meters (25’ 6.25”), which came at the Vanderbilt Commodore Invite back on Jan. 13. The senior won the long jump title at that meet, as well as two other meets including the Conference USA Championships. Sears racked up six event titles across three different categories during the indoor season entering the weekend.
The 2017 Indoor Track and Field Championships will be streamed live on ESPN3.com during both days of the meet. The stream will begin at 3:55 p.m. CT on March 10 and 5:25 p.m. on March 11. A re-airing of the championship meet will be broadcast Sunday, March 12 at 6 p.m. on ESPN2.
