Dill and Minors to set for battle

Dage Minors and Shaquille Dill are set for battle in the 800 metres at the NCAA Division II Indoor Championships, which starts today in Alabama.

Minors was denied a place in the final by three-tenths of a second as fellow Bermudian Dill claimed the remaining spot at last year's competition at the Pittsburg State University.

Minors placed third in the first heat in a time of 1min 51.04sec and when the final times were compiled from the three heats, he was denied the eighth spot in the final by Dill's time of 1:51.01 in the third heat.

Things could be different this time as Minors of Franklin Pierce College, is now ranked No 1 going into today's heats, after posting a leading time of 1:48.70 recently.

Dill, who attends Saint Augustine's College in Raleigh, North Carolina, is ranked fifth with a time of 1:49.71, so the stage is set for some interesting races. The finals will be held on Saturday.

Minors qualified for the championships after clocking a time of 1:49.76, the fastest by a Northeast-10 Conference student to rank him seventh in the nation.

Old rivals: Dill, front, and Minors, right, will compete against each other this weekend
