PORTLAND, Ore. – GNAC Insider returned Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. (PST) with a track and field-heavy show to preview this week's GNAC Indoor Championships.

Making her GNAC Insider debut was Seattle Pacific star Renick Meyer. The Gresham, Ore. product had a standout freshman campaign, being named both the GNAC Indoor and Outdoor Freshman of the Year. She also received USTFCCA outdoor All-American honors in the long jump and heptathlon.

The Falcons are coming off a strong performance at the Cougar Indoor, where Meyer made the provisional qualifying list for next month's NCAA Division II National Championships with a personal best 3,305 points in the pentathlon. The team will look to carry some of that momentum into this week's conference championship events in Nampa.

Over in Ellensburg, Central Washington has also had a strong month of February ahead of the GNAC Championships. Helping lead the Wildcats has been senior Kodiak Landis, who won the men's heptathlon earlier this month at the Cougar Indoor. Landis took home the conference's heptathlon title in 2017 and is third in all of Division II this season.

Last year, Landis posted a third-place finish in the 200-meter dash at the conference's Indoor Championships. He joined Tuesday's show to preview the week ahead and review what has been a fantastic final year for the senior.

GNAC Insider was also joined by Concordia men's basketball head coach Brad Barbarick. Barbarick has held his position with the Cavaliers since 1994, making this his 25th season at the helm in Portland. It's a big week for CU as it puts its two-game winning streak on the line at No. 19 Saint Martin's on Thursday night.
