NCAA's: Results (event by event)

LetsRun.com Coverage of Day 4:  (June 12, 2004)
Robert Cheseret Overcome Fall, Ritzenhein to Win Dramatic 5k
Arkanas Wins Men's Title, UCLA Edges LSU Women by a Point

The 5k lived up to its pre race billing and was spiced up by a fall that dropped co-favorite Robert Cheseret  on the 2nd lap of the race. However, he ran 30. the next 200m to regain the pack and he would duel with Ritzenhein down the stretch for the win. Arkansas won the men's title as expected but the women's title came down to the final event. UCLA led LSU by 6 points but LSU ended up winning the 4*400 but UCLA anchor Monique Henderson passed a few runners the final 200m to give the UCLA women the title by 1 point (which wouldn't have been possible except for LSU getting Texas DQd in the 4*100 on a technicality which put UCLA in the final which they ended up getting 2nd in and picking up 8 crucial points).

Day1: Wednesday:
Rain was the story of the day. As a deluge of rain (2 inches) cancelled every event except the women's 4*100 1st round, Heptathlon Day 1, and javelin. The weather was perfect later on (10pm) for distance races but the decision had been made. In the women's 4*100, originally it was believed that UCLA's women's team failed to advance which would hurt the Bruins which are in a 3-way battle for the team crown. But then 8 hours later it was announced the Texas women were DQd and UCLA was in the final. The NCAA released a revised schedule which cancels the heats of the 5000, and the rounds of events that were scheduled to have 3 rounds inluding the 800 and 400. *Read Rojo's Recap of Day 1in The Washington Post - UCLA Women Falter in 4 x 100

*Cragg and Craig in 10ks

Cragg defeats Robert Cheseret in 10k, Alicia Craig Wins Women's Title

The 10k finals were the highlight Thursday night.  Alistair Cragg made it a 2 man race with a 30 second 200 meters halfway through the race, but he would not surge away for victory until the final 600m.  On the women's side, Stanford's Alicia Craig, the heavy prerace favorite waited until 1500m remained to open up her lead. More from the LetsRun.com recap above including recaps of the 800m and 1500m heats where Grant Robison the defending champ, and Sean Jefferson, the indoor champ, failed to advance.
