Naperville, Ill. (NNCNOW.com) --- UW-Superior seniors Katie Capriglione and Nils Hansen were each competing Friday in the weight throw at the NCAA Division III indoor track and field championships, but the duo had very different levels of success.

Capriglione was one of nine to advance to the finals and had a best toss of 56 feet, 11.25 inches to finish sixth in the women's event, while Hansen fouled on each of his three attempts to finish in 15th place among the men.

The pair accounted for two of the three UW-Superior athletes at the NCAA Division III championships, with freshman Kenny McGee also competing Friday in the men's long jump.
