Coffey to compete in National Championships this Saturday

By Matt Wurzburger

Lindsey Wilson's Nikki Coffey is set to compete this Saturday in the NAIA Cross Country National Championships at the North Farm Cross Country Course in Elsah, Illinois.

Coffey is the Blue Raiders' lone representative at this season's championship meet. The Danville, Kentucky native received an automatic bid as she was one of the top four placers at the Mid-South Conference Championships not on the winning team. Coffey placed fifth at the MSC Championships with a time of 18 minutes and 50.9 seconds - the second-fastest 5K time of her Lindsey Wilson career.

The sophomore harrier is making her second-straight appearance at the NAIA National Championships. Last year, Coffey finished 165th out of 321 competitors, posting a time of 19:29.5.

The women's championship 5K race is scheduled for a 10:30amCT start at the North Farm Cross Country Course in Elsah, Ill.
