FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota State University junior track and field athlete Erin Teschuk will compete for Canada in the 2015 Pan American Games.

Athletics Canada and the Canadian Olympic Committee selected Teschuk to compete in the 3,000-meter steeplechase.

The Pan Am Games involve the 41 countries of North America, South America, Central America and the Caribbean and are held every four years in the year before the Summer Olympics. This year’s games are July 10-26 in Toronto. Teschuk’s race is July 24.

Teschuk is from Winnipeg, Manitoba. She became the first woman in NDSU history to qualify for the NCAA Championships in cross country, indoor track and outdoor track at the Division I level. Her three first-team All-America citations are the most ever by a Bison.
