The collegians put a nice close on what has been a rather lackluster indoor season.
The University of Oregon showed that it is indeed the nations top team (at least indoors) with a convincing victory in College Station Texas this past weekend - lead by distance star Galen Rupp who had wins in the 3000 (7:48.94), 5000 (13.41.45), and a leg on the winning Distance Medley Relay (9.29.59)! An awesome individual performance. The University of Florida, runner up in this meet, was lead by its own star, frosh Christian Taylor, who scored an American Junior Record in the Triple Jump with his 55' 8.50" (16.98m)jump to win the competition.
In other meet highlights, Wake Forest Sr Michael Bingham ran a world leading 45.69 to narrowly defeat Gil Roberts of Texas Tech (45.71). Baylor's Trey Harts also ran a world leader in winning the 200 in 20.63, then ran a leg on the winning 4x4 (3:05.81) that also notched a world leading performance. On the women's side, the Tennessee Lady Vols won as Sarah Bowman lead the way with her victory in the mile (4:29.72). And another world leading performance was turned in my Miami's Murielle Ahoure as she won the 200 in 22.80.
Congrats to all the winners. Now its time to head outdoors!
