Baldwin, a native of Kalamazoo, Michigan, enters the national championship as the current Big Ten champion in the heptathlon. The senior broke the school record at the 2023 Big Ten Indoor Championships with a point total of 5,973, breaking his own school record set earlier this season at the PNC Lenny Lyles Invitational. He ranks eighth in the 16-athlete field. 

This weekend marks Baldwin’s first trip to an NCAA Indoor Championship. He previously qualified for the 2021 and 2022 NCAA Outdoor Championships in the decathlon, finishing 11th and 13th, respectively, to earn Second-Team All-America honors on both occasions.    

Stephenson will compete in his second NCAA Indoor Championship and fourth overall in the pole vault. The Caledonia, Michigan native placed second at the Big Ten Indoor Championships this season and cleared a personal-best 5.55m at the Meyo Invitational on Feb. 3 this season. His clearance ranks ninth in the 16-athlete field. 

Stephenson competed in last year’s NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships, finishing 10th outdoors and 13th indoors for Second-Team All-America honors. His first national championship appearance came at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in 2021, where he earned his first All-America honor with a 13th-place finish.
