No. 12 Hokies head to NCAA Indoor Championships

You can bet the 12-time state champion from Pike High School in Indianapolis is thinking about a sprint double this weekend, especially after being nosed out by McLaughlin in the 400.

Elizabeth Jones finished as national runner-up in the 400 meters, finishing in a school-record time of:55.19.

Also breaking a meet record on Saturday was CSU-Pueblo's Thomas Staines, who posted a blistering time of 1:47.23 in the 800. During the first day of the competition, Konieczek helped the distance medley relay squad win the title, as well. United Kingdom improved by five spots and two points from its indoor team finish a year ago. She slipped one place to fifth in the fifth round.

"In all my years of watching, there have been some unknowns that win the NCAA title". Will Williams claimed long jump gold with his final leap of 26-10.5 (8.19). The collegiate record holder crossed in 7.47 seconds, winning in a runaway. In the men's triple jump at 5 p.m., freshman Papay Glaywulu will represent the Sooners. If Dermen cleared the bar at 3.70, it would have tied a career-best for the senior. Senior Molly Sughroue earned the honor thanks to her 16th-place mile finish in 4:48.42. The Eagles finished with nine points while the University of Massachusetts-Boston won the national title with 46.

"I've been coaching about 35 years and it was one of the most fun weekends I've had".

Finishing off the men's meet with a scintillating 4x400, the three fastest times ever run were generated by USC, the victor in 3:00.77, Texas A&M and Florida, third with a 3:01.43. She took home first place in the weight throw (15.44m) in her first collegiate event, the UMass Boston Winter Open, on December 2.

UW-L scored points in all five of Friday's final events, including Andrew Jarrett who captured the national title in the weight throw (65-½), becoming the fourth UW-L athlete to win the national title in that event.

When it was all said and done, the men's team finished in fifth place with 29.5 points and the women took 10th place, totaling 17 points over two days. Duckworth moved to fourth on the all-time collegiate list and improved on his second-place finish from 2017. "The goal is always to come back with a trophy and to be competitive at the highest level, so we're going to go there and give it our best shot and see what we come away with".

Representing Southern California, Randall Cunningham was the men's high jump victor, although he broke his tibia on an approach and is now at the hospital.

"I thought Nick did pretty well", Michigan State assistant coach Ceith Creekmur said.
