The title came a year after she finished third at the national indoor championships.

Six collegiate records were set, with Harvard's Gabrielle Thomas lowering the women's 200m mark to 22.38, and Aleia Hobbs of LSU equaling the women's 60m record with a 7.07, to go with the previously mentioned marks.

The top-16 declared entries, and top-12 declared relay teams from marks recorded this season qualified for the Championships.

"This was a tremendous meet with the amount of world records, collegiate records and all the records that went down today", Grant said. "I don't care if I have to get eighth or I need to win it, I'll do it". "Coach told me to adjust my mark and stay focused and stay composed and I just stayed composed back there".

Like so many athletes, Kerley appreciated the support from the crowd that packed the stands on Saturday night.

Once again, the highlight of the championships came in the men's 4x400 relays. That tied her personal-best and leaves her second all-time at Duke. "I knew I could do it and I worked really hard for this".

"We've worked on a lot of technique and really built off of previous year", Boss said.

Wyatt and Williams will seek to score in the NCAA Indoor meet three consecutive years. It is Jarrett's second career All-America honor in the weight throw after placing third in the event a year ago. "Huge mistake at the SEC Championships". A close finish in the women's mile saw Elinor Purrier move up from her runner-up spot in 2017 and capture New Hampshire's first-ever NCAA indoor gold in 4:31.76, only.06 in front of Colorado's Dani Jones. "I'm happy to get an All-American and I'm happy to PR". A national qualifier indoors for the third straight year, Jones had placed 13th in 2016 and 11th in 2017.

Newcomers are ready to make an impact on the women's side as freshmen Sammy Watson (800m) and Tyra Gittens (pentathlon) join a pair of sophomore triple jumpers in Lajarvia Brown and Ciynanon Stevenson.

He vanquished any demons he may have harbored in the 1,000 meters, running a personal best 2:56.23 to clinch the win. "I feel good about the men's group, and I think we can be in the mix if we do everything correct".

In the final event of the competition, the 1,000 meters, Adams led pack early in the race and never let up.

"I think that no matter what ends up happening, if you take the approach that you give each competition your very best, there's always something to learn from it", Sandoval said.

The senior becomes the first athlete in Mountain West history - men's or women's indoor track & field - to repeat as an NCAA champion in a single indoor throwing event.
