Unattached Runners


I noticed the Badgers are sending a few runners (Miehe and Thompson in the 5000 on Fri, for example) to compete as unattached athletes at UW Platteville this weekend. Is the unattached status because they are redshirting or some other reason related to NCAA rules?


I would probably guess because their redshirting. I noticed that Cooper Barth is also listed in the 800 though, so that makes me wonder whether he ran indoor track but is redshirting outdoor, or if something else is up.


Interesting battle for 10th.
