Allison Barwise and Rosa Moriello of the Boston University women's track & field will compete at the 2014 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships held this weekend in Eugene, Oregon.

Both Barwise and Moriello are slated to be in action Saturday during the final day of competition. Barwise will take part in the high jump while Moriello is set take the track in the 5,000m run. The high jump is scheduled for 3:45 p.m. ET and the 5,000m run is set to start at 6:24 p.m. ET.

This is the third trip to the outdoor championships for Barwise, who was a USTFCCCA Second-Team All-America selection in 2012. She has been brilliant in 2014, setting three school records and winning two Patriot League championships during the outdoor season. The USTFCCCA Northeast Regional Field Athlete of the Year broke the high jump mark thanks to a height of 1.89 meters at the Patriot League Championships. She also set new school standards in the heptathlon (5628) and javelin (44.38m) en route to being named Patriot League Field Athlete of the Meet. Barwise ranks third in the nation in the high jump entering the weekend.

Moriello will be competing at the outdoor championships for the first time in her collegiate career after advancing out of the East prelims on May 31. She finished third in her heat and sixth overall with a personal-best time of 16:03.57. That finish came after a second-place performance at the ECAC Championships (16:18.08) and a victory in her debut at the Patriot League Championships (16:46.08); Moriello crossed the finish line nearly 20 seconds faster than the second-place competitor in that win.
