Wheeler, Abdikulova Set Sights On NCAA Championships

MADISION, N.J. - Junior Stephanie Wheeler and freshman Aida Abdikulova unofficially qualified for the NCAA Championships with their performances at the Mid-Atlantic Regional on Saturday at Drew University.

The results from Saturday's event won't become official until Tuesday, however both finished high enough in their respective weapons to most likely earn at spot at the national championships held March 25-28.

Neither Abdikulova or Wheeler received All-Ivy honors with each finishing just out of contention for second-team All-Ivy. Abdikulova finished 8th overall and will be making her first NCAA Championships appearance. Wheeler, meanwhile, took ninth place. She qualified for the NCAA Championships a year ago and was an honorable mention All-America.

Junior Danielle Kamis and sophomore Laura Paragano and are candidates to possibly receive at-large bid for their performances. Both went to the championships a year ago.
