Minnesota Duluth junior Haleigh Reindl will compete in the 800-meter run Friday night at the 2021 NCAA Division II Indoor Track and Field Championships at Birmingham, Alabama.

This marks the third straight national indoor appearance for Reindl, who last year was one day away from competing before the NCAA canceled all winter and spring sports championships in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Waterford, Wisconsin, runner owns the fourth-fastest time in Division II at 2 minutes, 10.27 seconds. The top three runners in each preliminary heat plus the next two best times will advance to Saturday's final round, which is set for 6:40 p.m.

This is the ninth consecutive winter and the 16th time in the last 17 years that at least one Bulldogs runner has qualified for the NCAA meet.
