This Friday marks what we like to call DMR madness here at Flotrack! On Friday evening at 7:00pm ET our live broadcast will begin from Meyo Field at the University of Notre Dame where teams and individuals we have their last chance to qualify for the NCAA Indoor Championships in Boise, Idaho next week.

The Distance Medley Relays at Alex Wilson have really shaken things up over the past few years with teams flying in from all over the country to hit fast marks. With the exception of 2008, at least of the teams at the NCAA Championships come from the Alex Wilson Invitational. Below there are some cliff notes on each year along with auto standards and slowest team from the meet to get in. (click year for results and heats for race videos)

2007 - 7 of 11 teams from AW (Auto: 9:34.00, slowest in from AW 9:35.71)
- 3 teams ran auto, 7 teams ran 9:35 or better, 13 teams ran under 9:40
2008 - 1 of 11 teams from AW  (Auto: 9:34.00, slowest in from AW 9:35.33)
- 3 teams ran 9:37 or faster
2009 - 15 of 18 teams from AW (Auto: 9:34.00, slowest in from AW 9:33.32)
- 15 teams ran auto, only 1 team of 18 finishers that did not run under 9:40 Heat 1  | Heat 2
2010 - 5 of 11 teams from AW (Auto: 9:30.00, slowest in from AW 9:34.26)
- 9 teams ran under 9:35, 12 teams under 9:40 - Heat 1  | Heat 2
2011 - 6 of 12 teams from AW (Auto: 9:32.00, slowest in from AW 9:33.77)
- 3 teams ran auto, 11 teams ran 9:35 or faster - Heat 1  | Heat 2

You can see that this is the place to get your marks and we love it as it provides some qualificaton drama only days away from the big show. And you have know its serious when Washington and Oregon leave the Dempsey and head to South Bend! Typically there are around 11 teams in, right now #11 is Florida at 9:38.95 (see national list). There are currently four auto qualifiers (BYU, Indiana, Texas A&M, Oklahoma) and only two others have broken 9:35 (Stanford-9:31.24 and ASU 9:33.48). With the list of teams entered below, no team outside of the auto qualifiers is safe!

Check out the DMR start lists below and Make sure to tune in live on Friday and Saturday for all action from Alex Wilson. Enjoy!
