"This will be their first heptathlon of the season," Director of Track and Field/Cross Country Matt Bingle said. "They have been training well, so I'm excited to see what they can do in Kansas."
Both Beckmans have competed in the 100-meter hurdles, high jump, long jump and javelin this outdoor season. Alex has competed in the 200 meters, and Amanda has competed in the shot put.
