Hassan is the second Ram to win multiple NCAA titles (Bryan Berryhill - 2001 indoor champion in mile, 2001 outdoor champion in 1,500 meters) and the third to win multiple national titles under any collegiate organization (Wendy Koenig-Knudson - 1975 and 1976 AIAW outdoor champion in 880 yards/800 meters, 1976 AIAW outdoor champion in 1,500 meters).

The Manhattan College men's and women's track and field teams took a trip down to 216 Fort Washington Avenue on February 17-Feb. The women tied for 20th with 11 points. But she had a great clearance at the first height and then had another great clearance at 4.31m. "We weren't successful in that, but like I said, they didn't come in as a strong team from the start". Holmberg's total moved her into No. 2 all-time at Penn State in the event passing Brittney Howell's mark of 4,202 from 2014. Bloomfield's time was not only a school record but was the seventh fastest time ever in the world and the fifth fastest collegiate time ever. "He had a PR in prelims and another great race in finals". Despite ending in eighth place, her performance today was a personal best.

"The preparation for that race is always something that a lot of sprinters take very seriously", said Chapman.

OR owns the fourth-fastest 4x400 time in the nation and the sixth-fastest time in the DMR.

Gilbert qualified in spectacular fashion, in a come-from-behind win at the Husky Classic with a time of 7:49.42, good for the fourth seed at NCAAs this weekend. He was third in his heat behind Auburn's Raheem Chambers (6.56) and Houston's Elijah Hall (6.56). Eric Larson '15 compiled a 5,399 in 2015 for the school record and No. 3 in NCAA history.

"Our finish in the long jump was unbelievable and I am so proud of those three for answering the call", said Bulldog head coach Petros Kyprianou.

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. 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.

Purrier raised her arms high just after the finish line, but the race was so tight at the end she held off on whooping it up until she had a chance to doublecheck the scoreboard.

At the event, Johnson tossed a mark of 20.70 meters (67-11 feet), to place 13th inside Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium.

Junior NaRon Rollins reeled in 10 points across two events as he finished third in the 200 meters (21.17) and fifth in the 60 meters (6.73).
