The Lees-McRae College men's track and field team is picked to finish third at the 2012 Conference Carolinas Championships, announced league officials Thursday with the release of the preseason coaches' poll. The Bobcats return a

gifted core of athletes in all competitions, including juniors Bradley King (Hildebran, N.C.) and Brandon Williams (Raleigh, N.C.), as well as sophomores Eric Cloy (Ball Ground, Ga.), Evan Webb (Salisbury, N.C.), and Devan Mackey (Hickory, N.C.). Head coach Ley Fletcher also welcomes a strong recruiting class into the fold as the Bobcats look to vault back to the top of the conference.
Defending champion Mount Olive College tops the poll with 43 points and three first-place votes, followed closely by Limestone College with 40 points and three first-place votes of its own. Lees-McRae is third with 38 points, while King College is fourth with 30 points and one first-place vote. Queens University of Charlotte is fifth with 27 points, followed by Belmont Abbey College (19), North Greenville University (18 and one first-place vote), and Barton College (nine).
Webb and Mackey paced the Bobcats at last year's conference championship meet, taking home the crown in the pole vault and shot put, respectively, as Mackey also placed third in the hammer throw and fifth in the discus.
Lees-McRae kicks off its outdoor season on March 3 when the Bobcats travel to Hickory, N.C. to participate in Lenoir-Rhyne University's Power Sox Invitational.
