NCAA Championship Preview: Nicole Bush & Sarah Price
June 9, 2009
EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan State track & field team has had arguably its best overall season, both indoor and outdoor, since director of track & field Walt Drenth took over the program in 2006. The hard work and dedication of the coaching staff and the student-athletes culminated at the NCAA Mideast Regional last weekend as the Spartans qualified six student-athletes - at least one from every area of competition - for the 2009 NCAA Outdoor Championships, which will be held June 10-13 in Fayetteville, Ark.
This is the third of a four-part series that will highlight the accomplishments of each of the qualifying Spartans. Today, MSUSpartans.com features a video look at both seniors Nicole Bush and Sarah Price, who have both qualified for the 3,000m steeplechase at the NCAA Championships. Bush comes into the event with the second-fastest time in the nation this season and ranks 10th in the world amongst steeplechase runners. Bush and Price have been running in the steeplechase together for four seasons and this week will mark their final collegiate steeplechase race together. Below is a video feature on the two Spartan seniors.
