Dartmouth's Abbey D'Agostino came trough as the favorite one again as she repeated her distance double from last year, winning both the 3,000 and 5,000. She won the 3,000 on Saturday night in 9:14.47, but had to work for it as Arkansas' Dominque Scott stayed right on her until a lap to go, finishing second in 9:16.05.
Edward Cheserek comes away with two NCAA individual titles as he blew away the 3,000m field on the last lap to win in 8:11.59. Oklahoma State's Kirubel Erassa was a respectable runner-up in 8:13.08 as Colorado freshman Ben Saarel was 3rd (8:13.45) and BYU's Jared Ward 4th (8:13.73).
Last year, the fastest high schooler in the history of North America flopped as a first-year collegian. Now he's an NCAA champion. Meet Brandon McBride.
There is no way it could be better than this. Final event. Oregon vs. Texas for the team title. World junior champion (Ashley Spencer) vs. new American record holder (Phyllis Francis). To the line for the title. Francis (2:04.83 as a 16-year-old) gets it for Oregon.
In a wide-open event, Villanova's Emily Lipari came through with a big kick to get the win over Arkansas' Stephanie Brown, Arizona State's Shelby Houlihan and Florida's Cory McGee.
Anthony Rotich blasted Lawi Lalang the final straight away to get the NCAA indoor mile title.
The race came down to a two-team fight between Arkansas and Stanford with Dominique Scott (Arkansas) and Justine Federonic (Stanford) duking it out on the 1,600 leg. In the end, it would be Scott who got the job done as she got her team the dominant win in 11:05.83 to Stanford's 11:08.28.
Stanford gets dominant victory laregely thanks to a ridiculous 400 leg from Australia's Olympic finalist Steven Solomon as Oregon gets 2nd, Indiana 3rd and Notre Dame 4th.
Abbey D'Agostino came through as the favorite as she defended her title in a tactical 16:20.39 and is halfway to repeating her 5k/3K double. Behind her, Stanford's Aisling Cuffe and Kathy Kroger went 2-3.
Lawi Lalang's attempt at the 5K, mile, 3K triple is over almost before it started as Edward Cheserek got a shocking and dominant upset victory in the men's 5,000. In an honestly-paced race, Cheserek blew away Lalang in the final 300m, winning in 13:46.67 to Lalang's 13:52.83.

The Week That Was: A Great Week For The Men And Women Of Oregon, Edward Cheserek, Phyllis Francis, Laura Roesler, Shalane Flanagan, And Ben True - Plus A World Record Attempt Comes Up Just Short In New Orleans

This week we introduce you to Oregon's two newest female stars, take a look back and show you how Oregon of all schools somehow went into NCAAs under-hyped on the men's side, tell super-frosh Edward Cheserek to stay in school, talk about Ben True's sweet revenge on Chris Derrick and heap praise on Shalane Flanagan. Plus  a world record attempt in New Orleans that you didn't hear anything about just misses, high school nationals with big wins by Foot Locker stars Barrett and Fisher. And finally, why can't American 14:03 collegians run 2:06 like they can in Kenya?

Women's 800 Heats: Laura Roesler Remains The Heavy, Heavy Favorite Going Into The 800 Final

The women's 800 has probably one of the biggest favorites in any of the distance events in Oregon's Laura Roesler and she made it through the heats comfortably here as Andrew Keklak won the first heat and Savannah Camacho the second. Roesler is an even bigger favorite in the final as the #2-4 seeds coming into the meet went out.

Men's 800 Heats: Edward Kemboi Stays The Favorite As A Couple Big Names Go Out

The men's 800 saw the only big casualties in the distance heats as one of our top picks, Penn State's Brannon Kidder, as well as the top returner from last year, Sean Obinwa (4th in 2013), didn't make the final. The favorite to win though is Edward Kemboi and he made it through just fine as he won his the first heat and Ryan Schnulle won the second.

Women's Mile Heats: Leah O'Connor And Cory McGee Win Their Heats As There Is Still No Clear Favorite

The Meeting Of The Minds: Top NCAA Coaches Share Their Thoughts Ahead Of The 2014 NCAA Indoor Championships

The topics for discussion at the press conference were largely distance-based as the top coaches in the NCAA talked about racing at altitude, the men's DMR, and Lawi Lalang's triple (and whether Arizona could win the meet with just two guys). We also had a one-on-one conversation with Coach Franklin on his guys in the 5,000 and got an update on Princeton alum Peter Callahan.

Abbey D'Agostino Looks For History To Repeat Itself, Laura Roesler Looks For Individual Glory And A Wide Open Women's Mile

Last year, Abbey D became the first American to ever win NCAA indoor crowns in the 3,000 and 5,000 in a career, let alone the same meet. She looks to repeat that feat as Laura Roesler looks to move out of Jordan Hasay's shadow. And a wide-open women's mile is there for the taking; might a steepler like Colleen Quigley win it?
