Prepping For The Kentucky Derby…

UPDATE: The official lists of entrants are out. For the men, please click here. For the women’s, please click here. More than 130 Ivy entrants in all.

The road to the NCAA Track & Field Championships, for athletes in the Eastern half of the U.S., run through Lexington, Ky., in a few weeks.

No one can form chart and speculate quite like Mary Boggs and below are her expectations for the NCAA East Preliminaries from May 25 to 27 at the UK Outdoor Track & Field Complex at the University of Kentucky.

Those with a strike through their name are qualified entries who Mary thinks will not declare for that event. Those in italics are those on the bubble, but could qualify because of scratches. For a full schedule of events at East Preliminaries, please click here.
