Track and field school records fall at NCAA Indoor Championships

Norman, a University of SC student and the world under-20 200m champion, had seen Auburn University's Akeem Bloomfield clock a Jamaican indoor record of 44.86 in the first race of the two-heat final at the national collegiate championships.

Jasmine Camacho-Quinn claimed her first NCAA indoor medal, a bronze in the 60m hurdles, running 7.96 to score six. Later, she won her second-straight 3000 title with a 9:29.39 finish.

SCHREIER, MILLER, NELSON PACE UW-L WOMEN: UW-L finished 26th Saturday at the NCAA Division III Indoor Championships at the Birmingham CrossPlex.

"I'm very confident in my foot speed", Knight said to Cuse.com.

On the men's side, Devroe and Daniel Nixon finished second and third, respectively, in the 800 to earn second-team selections, the first of their Bulldog careers. "So I just ran with the pack and then tried to kick it in for the final 400". "We're ready to go". A St. Catherine, Jamaica native, Whyte became Auburn's highest freshman finisher at the NCAA Indoor meet since Marshay Ryan's silver in the triple jump in 2014.

"This is a blessing, I honestly did not really think I would be here", Devore said.

Jones' climb from No. 10 seed to the upper steps of the podium at Texas A&M's Gilliam Indoor Track Center was no less hard than what she endured along the way.

Foster recorded a 2.18-meter high jump which was 0.11 meters better than the next jumper and only 0.03 meters away from matching the MAAC record. "I feel good about the men's group, and I think we can be in the mix if we do everything correct".

The UK men's team's best NCAA indoor team finish was seventh in 1996 with 22 points.

Ninety-three men's programs and 84 women's programs are represented at the Championships.

A spirited battle in the men's heptathlon ended up with Kentucky's Tim Duckworth taking top honors, scoring a personal best 6,188 points as three men topped the 6,000-point barrier.

The other two who took home individual awards were rookies Lasma Padedze and Eduard Winner, who won Field Rookie of the Meet honors. His mark of 39-9 ¼ was 14th-best in the shot put, placing him 11th after three events.

"Once you get to this level, it's more of a sprint event and Marco is starting to figure that out", Dudley said. "I guess having more experience in that situation, it makes you go in maybe a little more relaxed when you get to that point".

"It doesn't get any bigger than this, with us hosting the NCAA Championships indoors", said Aggie head coach Pat Henry, who is in his 14 season with Texas A&M.

"This has been a long time coming for Alan".
