In the relays, the men's 4x400 team of Ilolo Izu, Devin Dixon, Robert Grant and Kerley finished in second place with a world record time of 3:01.39.

"A world record is when you have four of the same nationality on the same team", noted Henry.

This was the second time Hall has qualified for Nationals, the first for Indoor.

Sydney McLaughlin won silver in the 400-meters with a time of 50.36.

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.

"Duckworth recorded personal bests in the shot put (44'7"/13.59, 703 points), high jump (7'1.5"/2.17m, 963 points) and 1k over the weekend.

The men finished in third place and the women finished in fourth place.

"This gives me a lot of goals and objectives to obtain, because I do want to win a national title". Edie claimed the long jump championship with a leap of 7.76m (25-5½), two years after winning the title in 2016.

Earlier in the day, Kerley competed as an individual in the 400m, clocking another career-best time of 45.16 to finish in third place. Southern Utah's Mike Tate of Antigonish, N.S., the lone man in the field of 16 to run faster than Knight this season, finished fourth (14:15.67) while Calgary-born Rory Linkletter (14:16.88) of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, was sixth. He won a national title in the fall in cross country.

"I've been coaching about 35 years and it was one of the most fun weekends I've had". The men racked up 107 points, marking the first time in school history of back-to-back years of reaching the 100-point plateau for indoor, and the women scored 81, their highest indoor finish since 2008.

FIU's Brian Beard Jr. scored a career-high 30 points, almost rallying the No. 8-seed Panthers to a win, but No. 9-seed Southern Miss held off a furious Panther second-half rally to hold on for a 69-68 win in the first round of the Conference USA Basketball Championships on Wednesday. He won his semifinal heat with a time of 7.65 seconds before running a 7.72 in the finals.

Also taking home the gold was the men's 4X400 relay team consisting of Jude Christine, Dedrian Windham, D'Lance Sharp and Rashard Clark. "It was his best competition of the year so we really pushed each other which was good".

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 think she has a great chance tomorrow and I'm extremely proud of her".
