*MB: The Least Boring Press Conference Ever: Top NCAA Coaches Talks State of NCAA Track
M Long-Distance Preview LRC Edward Cheserek And Eric Jenkins Will Dominate – The Question Is Will They Battle Each Other To The Line Or Cross Holding Hands? Oregon’s Edward Cheserek and Eric Jenkins are the favorites to go 1-2 in the 5,000 and 10,000 at NCAAs. But will they race all-out against each other? And can anyone like Jason Witt, Kemoy Campbell, Justyn Knight, Patrick Tiernan or Thomas Awad possibly break them up?
M Mid-D/Steeple Preview LRC Cristian Soratos And Jordan Williamsz Lead A Wide-Open 1,500; Anthony Rotich & Stanley Kebenei To Duel In Steeple; Will NCAA Champs Brandon McBride Or Edward Kemboi Emerge In A Loaded Men’s 800? We’re not sure if there will be drama in the 5 and 10 but these races should more than make it up for it. The 800, where NCAA champs Brandon McBride and Edward Kemboi lead the way, is the deepest 800 in years at the NCAA level. Cristian Soratos vs. Jordan Williamsz is must-watch drama in the 1,500 as is the Stanley Kebenei vs. Anthony Rotich battle in the steeple.
W Long-Distance Preview LRC NCAA Champs Emma Bates & Dominique Scott To Battle In 10,000; 5 NCAA Champs Including Emily Sisson And Kate Avery To Battle In 5,000 With 5 NCAA champs battling in a single race, the women’s 5,000 promises to be a great way to end the distance action at the 2015 NCAA champs.
W Mid-D/Steeple Preview LRC Shelby Houlihan & Leah O’Connor Eye Repeats; Natoya Goule Goes For NCAA Title #4 In Stacked Women’s 800 Leah O’Connor will look to be the first woman to repeat in the steeple since Jenny Barringer in 2009. Shelby Houlihan will look to be just the third woman in history to win back-to-back NCAA titles in the 1,500. Natoya Goule has won 3 NCAA titles but she faces a LOADED field.
