TULSA, Okla.-The Oral Roberts men's and women's track and field teams will travel to Fargo, N.D. for the 2012 Summit League Outdoor Track and Field Championships, hosted by North Dakota State.

The Golden Eagles have at least one person in the top five of the conference's performance list this season in 18 different events, and hold the top mark in the men's long jump (Clive Chafausipo), men's pole vault (Jack Whitt), men's 4x400m relay, women's 3,000m steeplechase (Kristen Radcliff), men's 400m hurdles (Jeffery Gibson), and men's 400m dash (Gibson).

ORU's men finished second at the indoor championships, just behind Southern Utah, while the women's team finished sixth overall. Both teams finished fourth at last year's outdoor championships.

The men's team is currently ranked 14th in the Midwest according to the USTFCCCA.
