INDIANAPOLIS
- The Baylor track and field team had junior sprinters Wil London and Kiana Horton were selected to the 2018 NCAA Indoor Championships, the NCAA Committee announced.

The NCAA Indoor Championships are scheduled for March 9-10 in College Station, Texas. Both London and Horton qualified and will compete in the 400 meters.

The preliminary round will take place at 6:25 p.m. (men) and 6:40 p.m. (women) CT on Friday, March 9. If either runner qualifies a top-eight time, the finals will be at 4:50 p.m. (men) and 5 p.m. (women) on Saturday, March 10.

BU's two entries are six less than the Bears had last season. BU now has 41 entries to the Indoor Championships since the NCAA switched to the current format of selection in 2013.

BU had eight entries last season and nine selections in 2016. Baylor had school-record 11 selections in 2015, five entries in 2014 and seven entries in the first year of the new selection process.

London and Horton earned a spot in the 400-meter field by being among the top 16 marks in the NCAA this season in their respective events.

Horton, the Big 12 women's 400-meter champion, comes in with the 11th-fastest time of 52.60 posted at the Big 12 Indoor Championship last Saturday. Her 52.60 mark is the third-fastest 400-meter time in program history. Horton also recorded two other team-leading marks this season in the event.

London also comes into the event with the 11th-fastest 400-meter time of 45.95 which he performed at the Tyson Invitational on Feb. 10. His mark boosted him into Baylor's top-10 all-time list in the event where he is the seventh-fastest indoor performer and first Bear to crack the list since 2007.

Horton looks for her second First Team All-America honor after running on the fifth-place 4x400-meter relay team a year ago while London looks for the first Indoor All-America honor of his career.

ESPN3 will stream the meet live starting at 5:30 p.m. CT March 9 and starting at 4 p.m. CT March 10. A re-air of the championship will take place starting at 6 p.m. CT Sunday, March 11 on ESPN2.
