Coverage of the NCAA Division I track & field championships starts Wednesday!

First of all, apologies for being quiet on the blog in the run-up to the NCAA track & field championships, as things have been crazy on the home front.

Washington State's Jeshua Anderson and Washington's Scott Roth lead their squads into Eugene for the NCAA track & field championships which begins Wednesday at Historic Hayward Field.

Anderson, a three time Pac-10 champ in the 400 meter hurdles, is looking to add a third NCAA title in his specialty, with South Carolina's Johnny Dutch, among others waiting in the wings to beat Anderson.

Husky pole vaulter Roth is shooting to add the outdoor NCAA title to the indoor championship he won this season in Fayetteville.

Washington will send eleven athletes to battle in Eugene, while the Cougars will have six athletes competing.

Washington's release can be read here, while Washington State's NCAA writeup can be read here.

Among some of the notables from the state of Washington competing include Brie Felnagle (North Carolina/Bellarmine Prep) in the women's 5000; Becca Friday from Bellingham (Oregon) in the women's 800; Centralia's Jordan Stray (Oregon) in the men's hammer; Bellingham's Jake Riley (Stanford) in the 5000 & 10000; Auburn/Riverside's Jordan McNamara in the 5000; Nathan Hale/Seattle's Abdi Hassan in the 1500; and Gabby Midles of Olympia in the women's hammer, representing Idaho.

The NCAA will provide live streaming of the championships; the link to the live stream is here. CBS College Sports (channel 412 on Seattle area Comcast) will show two hours of the meet live Friday beginning at 5 pm, pacific time, and CBS (channel 107 on Seattle Comcast) will have the meet Saturday from 10 am to noon.
