2.  Conference Championship Weekend I


It is the first of two big weekends of indoor track and field championship action at the conference level.


Bright Cellars is a monthly wine club that matches you with wines you'll love.

Founded by two MIT grads (#whyD3) who were intimidated by the vast and complex world of wine, Bright Cellars was created to help wine drinkers discover and learn about wine in a fun, interactive way.

Bright Cellars creates a wine experience tailored just for you. Based on an algorithm, wine selections are calculated to match your taste preferences. As you try the wines, you're encouraged to rate them on the website to fine-tune your taste profile even further. Your matches improve as the algorithm gets to know you better, making each shipment better than the last.

D3Playbook readers are invited to get 50% off your first 6-bottle box from Bright Cellars. That's a $45 value. Each box will include a wine education card for each bottle that details servings temps, food pairings, background on the region and more.

Take our 30-second quiz to start your weekend right.

3.  Triathlon Reaches the Goal

by Kevin MacKinnon, Triathlon Canada

"The news that Cal Poly Humboldt in Arcata, Calif., will offer a women’s triathlon program in the fall means that the sport has met one of the milestones required for it to become a full-fledged NCAA program. Humboldt becomes the 40th school to offer a program – in 2014 triathlon became an “NCAA Emerging Sport for Women,” which meant it had 10 years to “demonstrate sustainability and success at the NCAA varsity level.” One of the parameters was to have at least 40 schools offer the program.

There are more steps to be reached including “committee, council, divisional and budget approvals,” but today’s announcement is a huge step."

>> Situational Awareness: "Women’s triathlon takes place in the fall with athletes competing over the sprint distance – 750 m swim, a draft-legal 20 km bike and 5 km run."

>> What They're Saying: "Getting to this point has been a 13-year process with contributions from so many,” said Tim Yount, USA Triathlon Chief Sport Development Officer."

>> Quotable: "Continuing to increase opportunities for women is an important initiative for the Committee on Women's Athletics and we are grateful for the schools who have committed this far." - Jason Doviak, Alfred State, chair
